Grey Days

Strange days here in Santa Fe. One night we get a blizzard that dumps six inches of snow on us, the next day is so bright and warm that the snow is gone by noon. Many grey days, damp, overcast, chilly without being freezing. Winter is holding on.

I cannot seem to shake this crud. Taking vitamin D and C, taking various cold remedies and allergy meds, and all of them help, but I'm still congested and coughing. It's more annoying than anything else. The worst part is how tired it makes me feel. Just when I most need to be shifting into high gear, I have no bloody energy. Not much good work getting done.

Ty is on vacation too, visiting Minnesota with his lovely wife. So stuff is piling up here, and I seem further behind with every passing day.

Plus bad news on various fronts that I cannot talk about.

Ah, don't mind me. I'm just in a fool mood.

I'm going back to the DANCE. I need to kill someone.

Careful, George. You're running out of Starks.

Oh fine. You have a cold, so someone else's favorite character bites it. Nice. :) jk.

Feel better! I hope so, or else Dance might end with: Then, Westeros flew into the sun, and everyone died. The End.

The creeping crud is tenacious this year. What is usually a week of misery seems to be extending to two for most of the people I know who've had it. May you start feeling better soon. :(

For what it's worth, the Cthulhu battle-plan scene in your previous post was a real treat. Always great to watch Tyrion strategizing.

We hope the bad tidings will take a turn for the good, and that you'll feel better soon.

Winter's retreating over here inch by stubborn inch.

Just a mention, I'm not a medical expert however I had similar symptoms, so did my girlfriend, and a number of other people I have known have had them. This isn't actually from a cold, it's something else, I was prescribed antibiotics for it, and my gf was given another type of med. Either way, I would strongly suggest you see a doctor.

I'd like to second sensorglitch's suggestion. The last two times I've failed to shake a cold after some days of self-medicating, I've required a good course of antibiotics to kick it. One visit ended up leading to a bout with a nasty infection that took 6 weeks of drugs to buck, and months before I felt better. See the man/lady in the white coat!

I don't remember who said that first but... "a cold is that disease that lasts a week if you cure it, and seven days if you don't". It'll pass... somehow. Take care, spring is just round the corner!

*sigh*

There goes another Stark.

You need to ask your doctor for a Z Pack and be done with it.
