I have a cold, now what?

Jul 07, 2017

Thanks for stopping by. I have my first cold since I quit smoking two years ago, and more importantly my first since surgery (6 wks ago).

This cold comes with head-ache, ear-ache, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and general body pain. It actually sounds more like a flu bug than it does a cold. I should check my temperature, I don't think I have a fever.

Now Normally I'd turn into my normal 'suckie-sick persona' and whine the whole time that "I'm dying". And truthfully the only thing stopping me is my temporary lack of an audience. Don't worry I'm not asking you to stand in for me, I promise I'll keep the whining in check.

HOWEVER, I am very worried that I've barely managed to get half my protein in for the last two days. I am struggling to swallow anything (including my meds).

The only thing I know to do when I'm sick is fluids, applesauce and rest. I guess I just answered my own question before I could ask it... 'how do I get my protein?' - go back to a full liquid diet! Duh!

K, I'm off to try a cup of tea, decaf of course. Have a great day!
