Very Sick

I've been very sick all weekend. It seems that I actually caught a cold (or some sort of virus). That's rare for me. Usually my over-active immune system responds to viruses with a brief crash, but I don't actually catch anything. This is a bad one, though. I've got some pretty heavy congestion, especially in my chest. I'm worried about bronchitis, but this mega-dose of antibiotics I'm still on for Lyme should protect me - I hope.

My Mom and her husband were here for the weekend, and we had a fun Superbowl celebration last night. I had to spend most of the weekend resting, and I still felt terrible - just completely exhausted, plus the congestion and cough. I did manage to play PIT with the family Saturday evening and a game of Scrabble with Jamie and my Mom on Sunday, but even that wore me out. They left this morning, and I have pledged to spend all day on the couch today resting. In fact, that's it for computer time for me today - time to put the laptop away.

Rest, rest, rest.


  1. Hopes for feeling better, wishes for a better tomorrow and dreams (for sweet dreams while you're resting) are being sent your way.

    Feel better soon,

  2. I'm so sorry you're feeling bad. Hopefully you can nip this in the bud before it gets too out of hand.

    I'm glad you enjoyed your weekend, best that you could. I love PIT! It is a very underappreciated game. I used to play in college, and we'd end up laughing hysterically.

    Do take care of yourself!

  3. Sue - with this crazy weather we're having on the east, it's no wonder there is so much bronchitis and the like going around. I hope you sat in the sun today. It's nice out.

    I'm jealous you can play scrabble. My brain just shuts down and I can't think of words. There are days I feel I have brain damage.

    Hang in there!

    p.s. I'm seeing a LLMD on thursday to pursue Igenex testing. I'll keep you posted if you want! Thanks for the previous advice..

  4. I'm in the same boat, only with a stomach bug last week. I'll rest if you will!

  5. Do you think getting a cold is good news for your immune system? Our daughter does the best of the three of us and she gets a cold every now and then, but I can't remember the last cold my son and I had.

  6. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. I hope it doens't last long. I'm glad you were able to enjoy some time with your mom and her husband and had a good Superbowl party with them.

    I hope you're feeling better soon.
    Take care,

  7. Yes, I love games and am glad I can still play Scrabble - it's one of my very favorites! I usually love PIT, too, but it was a bit loud and chaotic for me in my crashed state this weekend.

    Paula - Good luck with the Lyme doctor!! I am very interested to hear how your testing goes - please let me know. You mentioned severe cognitive dysfunction - that's often a sign of Lyme or some other infection. Good luck - I hope you get some answers!


  8. Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you are improving after the weekend's congestion. Not being sure how this works I've responded to your query in the comments on my blog.

    Keep on keeping on . . .
