Feel Like Cr*p!

It started with the odd girly sneeze on Friday, followed by Force 10 sneezing that on a couple of occasions saw me wet myself (oh the indignity of a weak bladder combined with sudden involuntary movement).  Today, I’ve got the full works….streaming eyes, bulbous sore red nose, constantly dripping but strangely bunged up (how can you have the two??), headache and hot sweats.  Yes, I have the dreaded cold that is sweeping the nation.  I’m sure I picked it up on route to work, the packed commuter trains are full the infected, graciously sharing their snotty germs with everyone.  Well I’ve got it now, but I did have the good grace to stay at home, rather than haul my ar$e into work and share my germs around.  I must admit it wasn’t a hard decision to make.   On opening the curtains this morning I saw the weather was reminiscent of a tropical rainstorm without the hot tropical heat! So far, my day has consisted of me sleeping on and off all morning, drinking gallons of water, although it seems to make no difference to the parched feeling I have in my mouth (think all the water is being diverted to my nose!) and telling everyone via Facebook that I feel sh!t!  Where are my sympathy responses from them??? Why aren’t they full of support and sending virtual flowers, chocolates and remedial alcoholic drinks??  It’s times like these that you long for the days when your mum was on hand with chicken soup, a cold compress for your forehead and buckets full of sympathy.  I suppose I will have to console myself with a hot Lemsip and a fresh hanky instead!
