My husband has had a lousy cold for over a week now. I tried to be careful not to catch it, even washing the bathroom glass every day with dishwashing soap before I used it. But seems like I have a mild-ish case of it. It's mostly a nasty cough and the worst of it is it wakes me up in the middle of the night hacking and hacking. Mucinex DM helps a lot but it doesn't last nearly the 12 hours it claims. And then after I wake up in the middle of the night, I end up with a banging headache and feel shitty all day.
So at 4 AM I got up and made some herbal tea to drink while I waited for the Mucinex to kick in (the hot tea does help), hacked up some gorgeous phlegm-balls, and shivered in the living room because it was cold. Bacon the Frenchie came out to keep me company. I slept a little more, but I still have that headache despite taking headache medicine. I do hope this is as bad as it is going to get, husband was sneezing and snotting all over the place, which I am not, yet.
Thank you for listening to me whine. You are nice people. Some cute cat and dog gifs would make me feel better.
