Thursday 13 v. 73 Why I Hate Being Sick

Thirteen Reasons I Hate Being Sick

1. Sore throats. I hate sore throats. If there's one symptom that knocks me on my ass, it's a sore throat.

2. Watery eyes. I'm not crying, really.

3. Coughing draws way too much attention to myself.

4. We're going to Jim's parents house this weekend for our Christmas visit. Great impression, coughing all over your boyfriend's parents.

5. I hope the germs go away by next week, because we go to Vegas. Cold coughing plus breathing in cigarette smoke equals lungs falling out.

6. Lysol. I hate the smell of it, but I have to Lysol everything so we don't keep sharing the germ wealth.

7. Lack of smoochies. It was the smoochies that got me sick in the first place, as Jim was sick last week. I keep trying to tell him to take back the germs, but for some reason he won't do it.

8. Colds always get worse at night. Which is stupid. Because you need to sleep to get better, but you can't sleep because you feel like crap. What's up with that?

9. I always get the worst symptoms. Jim was just stuffy and sneezy. I've added coughy, drooly, headachy, achy, chilly and grumpy to the list.

10. Cold medicine is REALLY expensive these days.

11. Cold medicine also makes me feel loopy and sick to my stomach.

12. Chicken noodle soup. I have bad associations here - chicken noodle soup is what I ate when I was sick as a kid, so I don't like it. But I drink it, because it's magic.

13. I can't work out when I'm sick - wait, was that a bad thing?

I sure hope you start feeling better soon. Don't you love this time of year. Just wait until you have kids, you think the Lysol is bad now... I should own stock in the stuff. LOL....

Happy TT!!

I definitely agree on the coughing thing for sure. Hope you feel better soon!

Brenda ND said...

Oh, I was sick last week so I can relate to your comments. I hate being sick too.

Janet said...

Hope you feel better soon!

I hate being sick too. I've turned my family into germaphobes. YAY we don't get sick as much.

I don't bother with cold medicines. They seem more trouble than they're worth...and to me it seems they make a cold last longer.

Renee said...

oh yeah, get better soon!

Oh, No. I've heard this from a few bloggers now. I take grapefruit extract instead of using lysol. Try putting a few drops of eucalyptus on a tisse and breathing in deep by nose and then mouth. It breaks up the germs and kills them. Cost about $4 at a health food store. I wouldn't be without it.

Well seeing you're not here to sit in front of my fire place, thus giving me a place to snooze and get warm, I hope you get better soon.

My human needs to stay sick FOREVER.
