This Cold/Asthma Attack or Whatever Is Not Going Away

I’m sitting in front of the computer with a t-shirt on and some sweatpants and I’m about to break into a cold sweat. I was cold earlier this morning – it wasn’t quite chills and shaking, but it was annoying.

Eyes are clear, phlegm is clear (!), but lungs feel like they’re in a vise. I have this hacking cough that is always trying to throw something out of me. I can’t walk very far very well, and I feel light-headed.

Drinking tons of water and orange juice and taking Vitamin C supplements. Using tea here and there to sip on so as to melt whatever decides to sit around in the nasal cavity. Taking Allegra and nebulizer treatments in order to prevent the asthma from getting worse, but definitely making sure the vitamin C gets in, just in case this is a cold.

I feel like crap right now. I woke up and felt beaten, and I had a fitful sleep last night.

  1. Asthma is rough. I’m sorry to hear you’re feeling so ill. Little C has a nebulizer and a preventative inhaler too, and he hates it. I spose it doesn’t get any better as you get older.

    Get lots of sleep! Hope you feel better soon.
