You see, as a fat boy with Asthma - a chest cold can really kick my ass if I can't get something to get it knocked out before it fully develops. Of course, having had 2,369 different chest colds over the years I've become familiar with the signals my body sends off pre-cold.
I woke up about 30 times over the evening feeling like shit. I woke up with a heavy chest and a slightly sore throat. I was sleepy so I wasn't sure if I just strained myself at work or I was sleeping wrong or I was just dreaming it all. Upon waking up this morning and becoming functional it all started to click, I truly am coming down with something.
Everyone around me is sick currently (except my family). Lots of sickness at work and my amazing woman has had a head cold for a few days. One of my employees yesterday was sitting in the break room talking about how he ever gets sick but must have run into something amazing yesterday because he ended up developing a chest cold out of no where.
Those were warning signs.
I cursed him, gave him the sign of the cross and screamed OUT DAMN SPOT!
It appears as though none of it worked.
I wake up today to find out the Pope is retiring (probably because of me trying to ward off evil in my break room) and that I feel like shit. Oh haha, good one all mighty deity! I ask for help and you make the one guy who can grant it step down to "retire" out of the pure blue thus shocking the world and turning all the attention away from what truly matters - me feeling like crap.
So, I'm currently doing online searches looking for places I can go to get the meds I need (since work switched insurance and the place I have gone for the past 6+ years does not accept my new insurance) so that I can feel better in time for my date on Valentines Day.
The good news is that because I am a fat boy with asthma and chest colds are something that can really kick the ever-loving-crap out of me I'm going to request a note saying I can't work for the next two days so that I can stay at home and rest and make sure I don't over do it and really screw myself over.
But, that's getting ahead of myself. First I actually have to track down and venture out to get my meds.
I need to start taking a vitamin supplement My natural awesomeness is no longer enough to ward off the cold and flu demons and I guess even a super hero much like myself needs help as he is approaching middle age. Anyone have any recommendations of vitamins that they take and really like.
I prefer chew-able (it's physically impossible for me to swallow a non gel-cap pill even the size of a normal Tylenol) or liquid form.
Now, off to brave the weather to find happiness in a waiting room.
