On the Mend - Thank You for the Well Wishes!

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Oh, boy! It is difficult to appreciate the simple joy of bending over to tie a shoe and NOT worrying that your face will fall off and hit the floor. Or the pleasure in sitting for more than ten minutes without a chest-clearing hack attack.

I think I am out of the woods. I have not had a chest cold like this in years. Once upon a time I "collected" sinus infections (or it seemed that way, since I had them so frequently). This bout with a bug was the closest I've come to fearing such a return.

My weigh-in tomorrow should be interesting, given that I haven't worked out in over a week. In fact, I may even do an easy workout tomorrow, just because my muscles feel 'dusty' after all this time off.

My NaNo word count is suffering, but I am hoping for a wild word streak in the coming days. It will be nice to have my OWN crazy thoughts, free from the influence of over-the-counter medications!!


Thanks again for all the goodies, comments on my Feed and healthy vibes. Everything is very much appreciated and I truly feel worlds better today! ~ Trish

    Glad you are on the mend. Might want to look into Xlear nasal spray. I used to collect head colds that eventually moved into my chest. Now when I feel the situations are ripe for one, I break out the spray.

    So sorry to read you've been sick!
    Have you got something like a Neti pot to ward off the sinus infections?

    I don't get sick often but when I do I get SICK big time. I hate sinus infections, bronchitis, chest colds, nasal congestion, ear problems. It all drives me up the wall. I'm glad you are getting better.

    I am definitely glad to hear you're feeling better.

    I've battled the never-ending sinus infections over the last few years, so I know how awful that is.

    Enjoy your workout, and make sure not to do anything too terribly strenuous!

    Whew. Six days before you reported a turnaround. That must've been one nasty bug.

    Good to hear that you're on the far slope now. I wouldn't worry about the scale. You'll no doubt have a lot of things going on physically that will make the scale reading meaningless at this point. I'd just concentrate on resting, eating and drinking right to restore strength, and listening to what your body says feels right as far as getting back into exercise.

    Welcome back to the land of the living.
