no sleep and still feel like crap

its been a rough night. i got zero sleep. and i still feel like death warmed up. my nose is running like a tap. its driving me nuts. i’m coughing like crazy. i rang my pa about half an hour ago to ask her if she had any lemsips in her house and if she did would she bring me one. lemsip is a medicine but its in the form of a hot drink. but it has codine in it. anyway she had none so i’ll have to wait until i can go to the store later this morning and buy some. i really dont want to go out but i have groceries to get so i’ll have to. but its wet and cold outside and i’m really not in the mood to go out. i just want to relax and watch tv and read and wrap up in my warm fleece blanket and feel sorry for myself. at least my pa will drive me to the store, it will probably only take us an hour so that is good and once i get home i’m home for the rest of the day. i hate being sick. it triggers so much for us. so much overwhelming feelings of being uncomfortable and not being able to breathe and just feeling miserable.

  1. It sounds like you are definitely coming down with a nasty bug. Being sick triggers us as well, but not for the same reasons. For us it triggers the fear of being a burden to others and needing someone to take care of us and being afraid they would rather not take care of us. No we were never treated that way growing up, but for some reason we still feel that way as an adult, that if we get sick then someone will have to help take care of us and we should be able to do it ourselves. I’m sorry you are feeling so crummy and I think getting some medicine is a really good idea. This sounds like a nasty cold or maybe an upper respiratory infection. If you start feeling crummy in the ears, see a doctor immediately. Last year we came down with a really nasty upper respiratory infection that moved into our ears and we had to go to the emergency room the night before Thanksgiving and the doctor who saw us there told us it was a very good thing we came in when we did instead of waiting until we could get an appointment the next week with our regular doctor, because the infection would have spread eventually to both ears and could have caused the eardrum to rupture, which would have been very painful. So please, if your ear starts to feel weird, let someone look at it. Safe hugs, Corey et al

  2. I don’t know why it is, but when we-at least I-get sick, sleep is the first thing to go. I hope you’re able to get some medicine that will help clear up the symptoms. When the body is sick, does the whole system feel sick, or just you, Carol Anne. Sending hugs without my strep. xxx
