Today marks two weeks that I have been battling this endless viral plague that has taken over my body! Who knew that the human body could produce this much mucus. It really must be getting close to a world record amount of snot that I’ve blown from my nose. I think I may have gone thru more boxes of tissue and rolls of toilet paper in the last 14 days than I have in my entire lifetime. We’re talking about epic amount of Kleenex with soothing lotion here and my nose still feels like I’ve been scrubbing it with sandpaper this whole time.
In all seriousness though, I could seriously use a break from the endless nasal drip and deep chest cough that just won’t seem to go away. On paper, I’m fine. My blood work is fine, my heart is the same as it was, my breathing and oxygen levels are back to normal. So really other than the lingering cough and the drip, drip, drip, of my nose I’m OK; I just feel like crud still.
Is it awful of me to say that all I want to do is go to the mall? <sigh> And really I never was a mall kinda gal but for some reason I feel like a trip to Macy’s would just make me feel so much better!
