I caught the grandmother of all colds and have been coughing up a lung for the past 2 days.
I actually dragged myself to work on Saturday, but in between hacking and blowing my nose rather unattractively, I felt like a nasty bed of virus. I came home straight after work, deciding that it was too cold to be anywhere else.
I got worse after that, and before midnight I had completely lost my voice from the coughing. I had to call in sick the next morning (and again this morning), and it turns out I'm not-so-superhero girl.
I'm staying warm, drinking plenty of fluid, staying away from coffee, eating three square meals to keep my energy up, reading in bed and sleeping a lot.
The new year has just begun but I am consoling myself that this bout of sickness is to properly get rid of all the toxic (people included) in my system.
Say a little prayer for me.
"Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him.
You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance. "
