I have been fighting off getting sick since we came back from Puerto Rico.

The day we came home, my left sinus got wind of something and blew up like a balloon inside my head leaving me with the sensation that I had to sneeze constantly.

Allergies - 'tis the season.

I've been popping claritan and benedryl for the past few days and have managed to keep it uder control....until yesterday.

I woke up yesterday with a bit of a scratchy throat. I had to visiit a client and unfortunately had to do a lot of talking...the worse thing for a scratchy throat. As the day wore on...it got worse. Driving back from New Haven, CT I got stuck in traffic. I went through an entire box of tissues, 3 bottles of water, a cup of tea and god knows how many mentholated cough drops.

I cannot be sick. I leave Friday to go to the UK and I do NOT want to be stuck on a plane for 7 hours with my sinuses the size of grapefruits in my head.

Luckily...the doctor can take me in right away this morning...I am going to order some super anti-biotics, then I'm going to fight my dog for a comfortable position on the couch (he jumped up on it and soon as I got up to go to the bathroom the little shit that he is) and sleep for the rest of the day.

I am not sick.

I am not sick.

I am not sick.

Sorry to hear you are not feeling well and I hope you're all better before Friday.

BUT, I must know....how did you manage to "hold it" in traffic with 3 bottles of water and a cup of tea in you?????

Thanks VC - I am a big baby when I am sick.

Believe it or not I dind't have that urge to go until I was almost home.

Then I RAN into the house.

I guess I have a big bladder!

Bummer, Shazza.
I know it's fat all compensation but we've all got it over here, too.
The office sounds like a non-stop argument between smokers and drain-cleaners. Gack!
If you come anywhere near Westminster next week, let me know and we can cough all over one another.
Get well soon and have a safe trip!

Hope you feel better! Eat chicken noodle soup, take some Airborne, throw some salt over your shoulder ... whatever might help!

Thanks all...I appreciate it.

You know what really sucks about being sick...daytime TV really SUCKS!

I tried that same chant, it didn't do me any good. Maybe you have good chanting skills and it will work for you.
