Joe is back

It was a bad night as no matter how I laid in bed my whole body ached, I could not breathe through my nose and just felt bad. I got up this morning as I was just tired of lying down and watched TV for a bit. Slowly my temperature started to go back up and was now at 101°F. On top of that I had a really bad sinus headache. All I could do was crawl back into bed.

At about 1700 I could not take the headache any longer. I figured the fever had done its job by now and grabbed some ibuprofen to end this vicious cycle. Body was a little weird as it tried to cool me down and felt nausea several times, but a few hours later things were back to normal and I feel like I have my strength back. Looking forward to actually sleeping tonight.

Been a long time since I've had a fever last that long. All you can do is just lay there and endure it. My brain is completely confused of what day of the week this is now.

Hello, again, Joe...

I've had a head cold this week, but without fever. Fevers scare me. I found Tylenol Cold & Allergy to be helpful, although the antihistamine made me sleepy so I'm now only taking it, as needed, at bedtime. My doctor doesn't think I should use any pain relievers other than Tylenol because it is the easiest on my stomach, as I'm highly susceptible to gastrointestinal distress. Now the cold is more lower respiratory, so I'm using an expectorant / decongestant cough syrup. Hopefully, this'll all be resolved by the time I start the new job this coming Monday.

Feel better soon, bubs.
