Day Three

Day three of what you might be asking yourself. Day three of not being able to talk. I have some sort of wicked upper respiratory tract infection and since I'm one of those unlucky few that has all the weird side effects listed on the pseudophedrine bottle like fast heart beat, nervousness, insomnia, etc., I'm doomed to go without decongestants and suffer. So, I then end up with a wicked case of laryngitis and those of you who know me personally know I love to talk. So not being able to talk just bites. I actually don't really feel that bad, just can't talk. And I've had enough tea and green tea to fill a swimming pool in the last few days trying to soothe the poor throat. I hope this thing gets over with soon and I seriously hope the kids don't contract it. I don't think I'd wish this on my worst enemy. Well, okay, maybe my worst enemy if I had one. I just really want to be able to talk again.

I'm so sorry your so sick. Rest up.

You could do what my mom did, she learned sign language so even when she couldn't talk with her mouth she still could with her hands. Or that's at least what my dad says as to why she learned sign language.

Hit the health food store for some Homeopathic remedies. That way you'll be prepared for the next cold. I've been living on Alluim (for runny nose) for two weeks since I'm pregnant and want to avoid the OTC stuff.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear your sick. Have you tried things like Zicam or Air Bourne? I'm not sure if it's too late in your cold to take those products, but I know that they really do help.

Get well quick! At least blogging doesn't require a voice. Hey, I see you signed up for the FPL KAL. Me too! I'm even going to frog a current project justify it! I've been eyeing this pattern for a long time, but need the support of a community to actually do it. Let the fun begin.

I've got that same thing and it's kicking me in the butt. It would help if my husband's hands weren't put on backwards and he could actually take care of me, instead of me having to take care of everything myself.

Mehn!

Oh no!! Hope you feel better soon. I often lose my voice when I get a cold, so I feel your pain.

Gah! It seems everyone has/is sick pre/during/after the holidays! I'm with you on the suffering without drugs.

Rest up, keep up with the tea and get better soon! Remember you can talk on the computer all you want even if your voice doesn't work! ;-)

Oh I'm a talker too so I can only imagine how horrible it is for you right now. :) I hope you're feeling better soon. You spinning on your new spindle is gorgeous!!!

There's a lot of this going around right now. My husband's been fighting it off, and I consider it little less than a miracle that I haven't get it yet myself! I hope you kick it soon. There's few things more annoying than a long, lingering cold, especially when you can't really medicate yourself properly. Ugh.

Take it easy--no super-complicated lace knitting! ;-)
