Cold Two

I think I'm sick.  Ugh.  Second time this year.  Not sure if it's allergies that led to sinusitis that led to an upper respiratory infection, or if it's some kind of virus, or if it was just exhaustion, but I feel like crud.  Maybe my breaking point is to work out for every single day, at least once a day, often twice (if you count 90 minutes of hot yoga!), for about 3 weeks. 

It's funny, usually if my body needs a rest day from exercise, I feel it in sore muscles, most frequently it seems to be somewhere in my calf muscles.  And I usually listen -- take a day or two off, and then come back feeling better.

But this time, I am soooo sleepy, my nose is running and stuffy, I have a horrible headache, and I feel like I can't breathe. 

I sucked it up and went to urgent care and he gave me the allergies/sinusitis/upper resp infection line.  And meds.  I guess that's all that really matters.

I don't think China will let me in the country if I show up sick, so I need to get better quickly! 

Fortunately, if I don't get around to most of the stuff on my long to-do list for this weekend, it won't be the end of the world.  It will make next weekend significantly more chaotic, but I'll manage. 


  1. I know we are in very different parts of the country but you are describing how a lot people I know around here are feeling including my husband and my mom. A number of the patients on my unit have also been complaining of cold/allergy type symptoms. I hope you feel better Carina. I will send lots of healing thoughts your way.

    1. That time of the year I guess -- hopefully you and your son will be able to dodge it!

  2. Get better soon! I hope you are better in time to go to China!
