It's a Cold

It's official.

I have a cold.  

I thought it was severe allergies, because each time I got to my sister's house I would feel so much better.  It must have been psychological. 

Last night though I was once again not able to sleep for very long because I couldn't breathe.

I talked to a Pharmacist this morning to see if he thought I was sick or if I was just still reeling from allergies and he said I had probably been sick for about a week.  (I sure hope my nieces didn't get this crud!!)  It mimicked my allergies so closely that I had no idea.  Since I take a 24 hour allergy tablet I didn't want to double up on meds so he suggested I take a cough medicine.

I have to say that every time I have taken a cough medicine I feel it hasn't really worked.  Since it had been a dozen years or more since I'd used cough medicine I decided to listen to the Pharmacist and buy what he told me to take.

I'm so grateful to say -- It worked!!

Within 30 minutes I was feeling so much better.

I can breathe.

The big test will be this evening when I go to bed.

Sleep.  I need sleep.

I'm in Montgomery, AL right now and I'll be back in my own bed within 24 hours.

No road trip photos this time around.  I have had so little energy that I want to use all of it getting down the road.  It's a bummer, but maybe tomorrow I'll be better and will have more energy.


Have a great day!
Kristin

EDITED to add:  I got about 7 hours of sleep last night.  It was wonderful!

Good! I'm glad it worked. What kind was it? Was it the behind-the-counter-have-to-sign-for-it kind?

Hooray for the meds and the sleep!
