And I'm Still Sick

It's Wednesday and I still feel like poo. Coughing is really exhausting. I stayed home from work yesterday and felt well enough to head up to Boston to have dinner with a friend, as planned. Only when I got home I was pooped and spent some time having some amazing coughing fits while drifting off to sleep.

The second I woke up this morning, I launched right into some coughs. Maybe I should sleep on the couch tonight so I don't bug Jason so much. He hasn't said anything, but I feel bad when I cough and then he rolls around and I know I've woken him up.

I'm at work today, because I feel guilty and extravagant taking sick days and I don't feel THAT bad. I had the flu in February and I felt bad enough to take 2 days off then. But this is just annoying and tiring rather than debilitating.

I'm kind of getting a headache now.

Amy posted her Wednesday Workout today and I read it and thought, "whatever". My body is so not up to exercising right now.

OK, going to take some pills for my head now.

Oh Kelly, I am so sorry that you're sick. Have you been to the doc? I know you wrote that your cough is not productive, but if it's tha deep there might be something down there that your doc could prescribe something to make it go away! I need you to be well so I can live vicariously through your swimming! Especially since I had triathlon dreams last night and the curves I belong to doesn't have a pool. :(

Andrea, thanks for the nice thoughts!

Alanna, I'll try to make my cough go away, for your benefit. I'm giving like that. :) I haven't been to the doctor. It's been a little more than a week since this started. If it keeps going for another week, I'll go to the doctor. But for now, I'm going to wait it out.
