And then I got it. WTF? I got clobbered by one of the nastiest colds... I was wandering around (between the bed & the couch & the toilet) making zombie moaning noises "Uuuuuuugggghhhh" and "OooooOooOOoohhhh", hocking thick green & yellow loogies, and snorting constantly because it was such a challenge to breathe.
After missing one night of work, I thought I was up for doing a graveyard shift. WOOOPS! That was dumb! Not only was that night a night of pure hell, but I felt worse for the next 3-4 days. Wound up taking the rest of the week off with sick days. Blech.
No, it wasn't the flu. It was a cold.
I barely ate, I drank a lot of water, spit up a geegob of phlegm, and slept an extra 4+ hours a day.
Almost healthy now! YAY
