I have been having (what I think are) dull intestinal cramps daily for about 2-3 weeks now. Mostly in the mornings, but sometimes throughout the day. Feels like my period, but not as intense. Bleh...plus the nausea and lack of appetite aren't helping either.

i think i am finally coming down with the cold/flu-ish winter thing that's been going around. drank a lot of ginger-rum punch last night, and today am pounding the leftover chili from my party with lots of raw onions and as much hot sauce as i can handle. more ginger tea to follow.

I don't need my ears, right? I can just chop them off and live a life without ear infections?

I thought I just has excess mucus from quitting smoking (after restarting a few weeks ago, damn friggin cigarettes.) I was wrong, now I have a summer cold in the middle of a heat wave. I want to sip hot tea, but I also recoil at the thought of hot anything right now. Same issue with snuggling under the covers. I hate summer colds, and I'm blaming myself for forking up my immune system by smoking. Garrr.

Head cold: DO NOT WANT!!!

I finished all my in-person paper style work at work, then came home to sleep a few hours, then to finish my 'virtual' work from home. There are construction vehicles making a lot of noise outside my house. WHY?!

I'm sick. I got to good fortune of being sick, pregnant, and having food poisoning at the same time. I don't have the food poisoning anymore, at least. I'm afraid I am going to get laryngitis.

I was also on call last night and I almost passed out in the OR. How exciting. I think I am going to have to call in sick today.

Apparently it is strep throat. And food poisoning. I am cleared to go back to work tomorrow. I hope I am feeling better by then.

This cold is a forker. I left work at lunchtime on Wednesday feeling a bit shiitake, but anticipating that I could sleep it off and I would be fine. It's Saturday night and I'm still a mess. Everything hurts. And most of all, I'm just irritated that I'm still sick. I decided yesterday that I would be fine today, apparently my immune system didn't get the message.

Arrrgh, sore throat this evening. Which means I will hardly be able to swallow tomorrow, and then the day after that my sore throat will be gone but I will have a full blown head cold. It always follows this pattern. ALWAYS.
