I’m doing my damndest to fight off illness on two fronts here. On Christmas eve last year ( how weird does that sound?) I started coming down with a “flu” bug that Cliff had been fighting the previous two weeks. It was not flu in the proper sense of the word – more phlegm and mucous and a sore throat but I could feel it attacking my body. I got extremely bad post nasal drip and the mucous just would not budge no matter what I did to get rid of it. Hocking it out (most unladylike I know but what’s a girl to do?) did not work, blowing it out (and nearly exploding my head with the exertion of this exercise) did not work, sitting over a steaming pot of Olbas and hot water (mini facial – bonus) did not work and getting my reflexologist to work on my mucous points did not move it either.
So I’ve been battling it for a while now – taking antihystemines, blowing, hocking, taking herbal remedies you name it. It’s still there. Then on Friday I started getting a nasty case of gypo guts. So add to the mix, snot and gypo guts – not a pretty picture at all.
I’m exhausted, if I could I would fall asleep right now typing this… Well only 5 more hours of work to go and then I can go home…
