Yes.. it's true.. a winter cold has finally gotten me. The heaviness in my chest.. the scratchiness at the back of my throat.. the lack of desire to get out of bed. Oh wait.. that's normal.
I have founght a good fight, but must confess... tempuratures in the teens is too much for me. I live in the desert! We consider it really cold when it's in the 30's (insert wimp comment here). Yes.. I admit.. I prefer the cold to the heat ( I know I know..."Then why do you live in the desert?").. but waking up to a tempurate of 16 F with a windchill that knocks it to -20 is too much for my immune system.
I promise to drink lots of fluids.. lemon water, specifically. I promise to get more rest..well.. more than 5 hours per night. I promise to test more often..now where is that box of lancets.
Please pass the cough drops and the tissues.
