I hate being sick. Of course, I don't know anyone who actually enjoys it.
Thankfully, I don't really get sick that often. At least not debilitating. Mostly headaches and fits of the blahs.
This bout of the cold started last Wednesday as a simple sore throat. That sore throat got worse and worse until Monday it had progressed to a full on cold. Since then, I've gone through nearly an entire box of Puffs. On my own. It's incredibly gross! I'll spare you all the disgusting details.
Really, I wanted to share the other reasons why I hate being sick...
All my progress towards a healthier lifestyle? OUT THE WINDOW!
- Not one day since last Wednesday have I consumed more than 3-4 glasses of water. The 3+ weeks prior I was averaging 9 glasses per day.
- I haven't been able to go to the gym or pool or long walks with Sallie.
- I spend most of my day napping, which means I haven't been eating very often. It's hard to eat while you're asleep.
- When I eat, it's all junk! I've had more sweets and crappy food in the past week than in the previous month.
All medicine that claims relief tastes awful!
What do you HATE about being sick? Are there any benefits? Do you have a surefire cure to the common cold?
