Of course, I put off going to the grocery store so I don't have much for way of food in the house. I'm sure if I desperately needed something, Matt would go get it, but I feel bad asking him. Hopefully tomorrow I'll feel well enough to take the bus into town to get some nasal spray, soup, and possibly whiskey (it's been suggested more than once!) I really wish colds were like the flu - 24 hours later, you're not necessarily well, but you're on the mend. Colds you just have to wait out until they've run their course. Maybe this is my punishment for getting a flu shot - I can't get the flu so I get a cold instead!

I have learned the virtue of being prepared for sickness before the sickness actually hits. I have a cold, and will be using this medium to whine about it. I could feel my throat becoming scratchy on Tuesday, and I should have stopped at the campus pharmacy then and picked up medicine. Unfortunately for me, I did not. I was in successful denial until Friday, when I finally had to admit that my nose was plugged, my throat was on fire, and my sinuses hurt. I have both Dayquil and Nyquil, but I'm supposed to use those "sparingly" because I'm on Warfarin. I also have cough drops and Sudafed, which have both helped quite a bit. This morning was the worst - my face hurt. Not my head, mind you, my face. I could tell my sinuses were completely filled up and all I wanted to do was burrow my head in the covers and not come out til my cold was done.
