It feels like a long time since I’ve blogged but in reality it’s only been 3 days since I’ve added a new post.
A recent weeklong trip to Seattle to check on a friend who started on hospice a couple of months ago, along with an “almost” weeklong cold has left me feeling quite fatigued and without much momentum.
The cold started slowly with just a little cough. Within a couple of days my sinuses were fully congested, I could hardly hear and my chest started feeling like someone was squeezing it. Then the wheezing started and that’s when I became concerned.
I started using my asthma inhaler, albuterol, almost daily which is uncommon for me. Today I’m feeling a little better although my ears are still plugged.
Mornings are worst for me because of the coughing yet I’ve been able to sleep through the night.
What have I done to “cure” myself? Not much really. I use a humidifier at night right next to where I sleep, drink lots of water and eat “right” which is easy to do on a paleo diet and then I get lots and lots of rest.
Next week I should be ready to post again — I have a backlog of things to share.
