27 February 2017

Eight days ago I was sitting in Starbucks and realized I was having a hard time concentrating. That was followed by feeling a little bit off, and a tickle in the back of my throat. I packed up my stuff and went home, because I was pretty sure I was coming down with something and I don't want to pass it around, and because I get a little and didn't want to go off on anyone.

It all went downhill. the coughing started, the gurgling started, the headaches started, and I just felt like crap.

Still do.

My back and sides are horribly sore from all the coughing and I can't keep up with the headaches. I'm exhausted. Still, all in all it could be a whole lot worse. It's just a really bad cold that doesn't seem to want to go away.

But...I need it to go away in the next couple of days. This coming Saturday is the St. Baldrick's Shave; if I still feel as awful as I do now, I can't go--I won't risk passing this alone to the masses--and if I don't go, I don't get my t-shirt.

I'm all about the t-shirts, you know.

However...even if I can't go to the actual event, the head will still get shaved and y'all will still get the promised video of me singing, as soon as I can. I can't sing even a few words right now without coughing like a maniac, but the goal was met and I will fulfill it.

Fingers crossed I can go, though. I want the t-shirt.

I thought I was getting the crud because face it I don't leave the house and was going to therapy 4 times a week with people hacking up a lung all around me. someone said try cold eze so I picked some up that day and never had a bad day due to a cold anyway. maybe lay some in for the next bout? good luck for the t-shirt hope you feel better soon.

Maybe you could borrow a surgical mask from the Spouse Thingy & go to the event. Then nobody could get your cooties.

I had that hang on for almost a month. At first it was kind of a dry cough and then for three weeks it was a nasty wet cough. At times it was hard to breath because my chest was tight. Unfortunately, it only feels like a great ab workout. Or maybe I have a six pack but it's inside a styrofoam cooler.
