Since Friday, I have been fighting a bad cold of sorts which has taken out my office and co-workers for days at a time. At the very start of it, I had a raw throat and came home mid shift because talking on the phone for a living and sore throats just do not mix well. I immediately hit it head on with copious amounts of Echniacea and Vitamin C to head off the impending attack on my body. This usually shortens the length of an average cold I might have to be around 1 day or so out of 4 that it would normally last. Today, marks day 5 of this stuff. I keep dosing with the stuff and overall, I know it has helped quite a bit, and am hoping to be rid of this stuff soon.
I woke up this morning as I have for the last few days with a bad sinus headache, sharp pains in my sinuses. I can usually get rid of that within an hour of waking as was my plan before work. I did not have a chance to get fully dressed before I had a rapid sneeze attack 5 in a row very violent sneezes. Strained my throat some and totally set my nose up for running. I knew then - that I would not be making it into work. I stayed home Monday because I was not feeling good, went yesterday, and then today, am out. Yesterday, was sort of iffy for me physically, but I pushed through. Every day around 3pm, I totally am drained and ready to sleep and have done so for most of the weekend and Monday.
I hope to be able to get past this ASAP! This is one tough virus that has hit but I am tougher!
