After feeling like death warmed over for the last two+ weeks, I think I am finally beginning to feel human again. We have had a wonderful cold/flu virus circulating around the gulch. I was hoping to be spared, but living amongst the viral soup that was just unrealistic, and I succumbed.
With spring blossoming all around feeling sick was all that much worse. I didn’t really enjoy all the plants and trees bursting into leaves and flowers. Sleep was an elusive thing. Lying down only spurred on fits of coughing, so many nights I just sat up listening to a cacophony of wheezes, sneezes and coughs emanating from all parts of the house. It sounded like the terminal ward of a TB hospital.
I actually got a full nights sleep last night. That alone has gone a long way to helping me feel better. And that was after I fell asleep on the couch in the middle of the afternoon, something that I next to never do. But I guess exhaustion finally took over.
I am hoping for another full nights sleep tonight. Maybe then I will be back to my normal self instead of a grouchy, hacking, sleep deprived lunatic…………….
