I was doing so well with not getting sick this year and then bam! A sore throat, cough (only when I talk), chest congestion and fatigue. It wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have the fatigue to go with it as I could still get things accomplished.

But, as is normally the case, the body wants to rest and it makes itself known. Fortunately I have no fever. My fear is always the chest congestion as I am asthmatic and in previous times colds get in my chest and then I have to make a run to the emergency room for the wonder drug called Prednisone. It helps clear things up but it also has side effects if used too much that aren’t so healthy.

So I do all the good things — eat healthy, drink lots of fluids and wait for the virus to run its course. Hopefully it will run fast!
