Everything hurts/Doesn't work
The flip side of everything comin' up roses - I went from a sore throat late Friday night to a dreadful head cold. Seriously, my head feels 10 pounds heavier than usual, and breathing is a thing I need to be conscious of yet again. And I am generally feeling weak and puny and logy. So if I'm not making sense today, that's why. Am medicating with DayQuil, GF chicken noodle soup (nowhere near as good as sindrian's soup), and tea.

I went from a horrible sore throat last Sunday to a head cold myself. My only real consolation, right now, is the amusement I get from how *green* it is when I blow my nose. Seriously, how on earth can anything that close to fluorescent COME OUT OF MY BODY??

Ew, hope you feel better soon!

You probably didn't see it, but right before PAX I mentioned a vicious cold-like thing circulating the area which can progress rapidly into a sinus infection and last quite some time?

Yeah, I'm just finishing my Cipro tomorrow. Get the guaifenisen now.

Neti pot or squeeze bottle, too. And antihistamine, if you're not doing that already. Starting the routine early enough might keep shit from settling in too deep (or getting to the point where it needs antibiotics). It didn't go to bronchitis on me, but it threatened to - GP pulled out the Tussionex along with the Cipro.

I hope you don't have this, but I suspect it's worth being aggressive but fast just in case. My GP said their facility's been swamped for a while now, and it's harsher than they're used to (probably the reason why the sinus infection treatment went straight to Cipro over the usual options).
