I'm sick. I was really hoping yesterday that the sneezing and the irritated throat I had was just something in the air, but apparently not. I used half a box of Kleenex last night, and I woke up with my throat on fire. Darn it, head cold!! It figures that the weather gets nicer, and I am sick. Why couldn't I have gotten sick in the dead of winter, if I had to get sick at all??? I'm just hoping it doesn't last long. As I recall, the last time I was sick, I had a sore throat that lasted almost a week before I decided to see if it was strep (which it wasn't). At least my sore throat seems to be gone already. I'm just having a problem breathing! My nose is going through periods of time when it's so runny I'm blowing it every 5 minutes. Then I take Revatio. And I can't breathe because my nose gets all stuffed up! You'd think that'd be a good thing, but it's really not! I've been using nasal spray, which does help a bit. But I seriously hate hate hate stuff up my nose. Not like tubing, b/c although that is up my nose, it's not ALL the way up my nose, and coming out the other side. Not like a neti pot, which I keep getting told to use, but I just can't do it. I don't care what people tell me!!! Anywho, I'm sure I've just painted a wonderful sexy picture of myself dripping all over and trying to breathe, so I'm going to just try to go to bed now!!!
