Must be the drugs.

Warning: Lots of whining ahead!

I can't taste my food. My taste buds are numb from this stupid cold/allergy attack, which by the way, is a very strange thing. I'm nursing a protein shake right now and I can barely taste it. It's like it had 1/10th of it's normal taste. I can't even smell it.

Last night was a bad night. I went to bed at 9:00 PM and only slept til around midnight, I took another round of drugs and tossed and turned til 3 AM. I was up for an hour, drank a cup of chicken broth and went back to bed. Got up at 7 AM for more drugs and then slept til just past 10 AM. I got on the scale this morning and weighed in at a whopping 259.2 lbs. WTF?!? It then occurred to me that I haven't exactly been eating all that much and sure as hell haven't been getting in my fluids. I'm retaining water like there is no tomorrow. Ugh. I hate being sick. I feel miserable and find myself in a foul mood. All I want to do is crawl in my bed and drink warm liquids. It's not fun. I actually had a short tear-filled moment early this afternoon. Yeah, I can be a wuss sometimes, I guess I'm frustrated because I should be feeling better, not worse. Seriously, how much snot can one person generate?!? I think what is happening is the cold itself is winding down, but the allergy crap is reaching it's apex.

As if all the coughing and sneezing and nose-blowing weren't enough, my ears are clogged which is throwing my equilibrium way off AND I can't hear worth crap. I made my way to the grocery store again convinced that I needed more (better) drugs and it felt like I was in a fog. I also bought some good old fashioned chicken soup and had a nice bowl of that for lunch. That was the highlight of my day. I also picked up some of those super-soft facial tissues which are a gift from God.

On a completely unrelated note, a friend emailed me a recent photo of Guy from this past weekend. Seeing it brings back a flood of emotions which just make my head that much more foggy. Unfortunately, I don't have it in me right now to think to hard about whatever it is I would like to resolve with him. He's still a very tricky issue in my life, he may forever be, but luckily not something I need to really worry about. He does look good though. I can't lie about that.

Ugh. I'm tired, I'm going to get me a bowl of soup and call it a day.

Honey, do yourself a favor, especially right now while you're laid up sick. Go out TODAY and rent Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Get Married."

I cried for the fat girl I am, and all the fat girls in the world who have been mistreated by men who thought they could abuse them because we/they were so fat we would put up with anything as long as they didn't leave us.

Well I say "HA!" to that.

And as my mother used to say, "Men are like buses; another one will be along in ten minutes."

Leave Guy alone.

And that's my advice for the day.

Now come on, get dressed, you got to get to the video store!!

Hugs, feel better,

Aw, heck, I'm sorry you're feeling so lousy! I cry, too, when my head's full of gunk and I feel cut off from the world by an excess of snot and the inability to hear or taste.

Yeah, there are bigger problems in the world, but knowing that doesn't fix a thing!

xo to you!
