Summer Colds Should Not Be A Thing

Hello friends. You may be wondering why I haven’t blogged in the past two days, and the answer is that I have been incapacitated by what felt like the black plague.

On Sunday, I woke up feeling disoriented and off, but I figured I just hadn’t had enough water. That night, I woke up with what I thought was an allergy attack, but when I got up in the morning, it didn’t go away.

How someone gets a cold in the summer, I’m not sure. It’s not right to be sick and gross and hot at the same time. I would rather have three colds in the winter than one in the summer.

Monday wasn’t terrible, just a lot of nose blowing. Tuesday I took a good combination of cold medicine and was able to enjoy a day at Canobie Lake. All seemed fine, though I may have felt a little loopy, until I got in the car to go home and the full effects hit me. I went to bed expecting to wake up feeling great in the morning, but the opposite happened.

Yesterday was my worst day yet. The cold knocked me out from my hair to my toes. I slept most of the day, or at least tried to, and when I ran a quick errand with my mom just to get out of the house, I had to go home and take another nap. When I woke up from that, I was feeling even worse, laid down for another 15 minutes, forced myself to eat dinner, and then felt better.

I was afraid it was just temporary relief, but fortunately, I woke up feeling almost back to normal. To be able to breathe through my nose again is the best. Though my head is still recovering from having to take yucky cold medicine, I’m glad to say that I feel like a human again.

On my best days, I hate sitting around and doing nothing. I need to be up and moving, even if it means a quick walk around the block. Yesterday, it was hard to lift my head up just to sit up. In the winter, at least you can make yourself warm and cozy in a huddle of blankets. In the summer, it’s having to choose between suffering from the 90 degree heat or allowing the fan to tickle your nose into even more pain.

Sorry for not being able to blog, but it would have just come out like mush. I’ll be happy to try to get out this afternoon for a nice, long run/walk combination. I don’t want to push it too hard, but my body is itching to get moving!

I hope this cold, or whatever is going around, doesn’t hit you!
