I feel like a dead fish, crossed with Rudolph.............

I can't breathe through my nose so I have to sit here with my mouth wide open like a dead fish.

Also my nose starts to run without warning. I hate a runny nose. I have the cutest little neighbour "R" and the last couple of times I have seen him, his nose is runny. Now what is it about young children and runny noses, and their tongues!!! Please try not to visulize what I have just told you.

So back to my runny nose, as I said it keeps running without warning, so of course now I am wandering around with a box of Kleenex, just in case. So due to that I am beginning to look a bit like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.

Can it get any better..........well I have to turn the tv up real loud so I can hear it, as my ears are blocked. The trouble is do my neighbours want to listen to Coronation Street and Casualty as well?

Otherwise I am in great shape...LOL


This is what Denise sent me, isn't she a love? I have to say that dog looks a whole lot better than me today!!!

Hot toddy's are the answer! A few of those and you forget you even have a nose :)

You poor baby...don't you have a netti pot? I can't live without mine, it helps me get rid of my cold faster...in case you don't know what it is, it looks rather like a teapot that you clean out your sinuses with, simply fill it with saline solution, tip your head down and to the side "plug" the spout (just hold it up against) your nostril, start pouring your "tea" and it comes out the other nostril slick as ...no, I won't say it...slick as anything and you can breathe! At least for a while...I use mine every night before bed in the high summer because of all the pollen and my allergist is the one who turned me onto this years ago...Netti Pot...if you don't have one hon, you need to get one!!!
gentle hugs

thanks for all your get well wishes. I haven''t even got dressed yet, and its 2pm, don't think I'll bother today. Though I now have some sinus pills, so hopefully that will help.

Sandi, that Netti Pot thing sounds, icky, sorry.........that just isn't me.

Denise said...

Oh boy, colds can really do a number on you. Sandi's netti pot sounds interesting. Never heard of that before. I'm going to keep that in my 'health related' folder for whenever I have anyone who needs it and that hot toddy, I remember those well :))))

Feel better soon Gill and don't bother getting dressed, pamper yourself and better still get your family to pamper you. Glad you liked the graphic.

Poor Gil, nothing like a cold to make you miserable!!! Take lots of vitamin c, and rest! barb from Oceanwavesquilts.

Jess said...

Do hope you get well soon... will be praying for you.

leslie said...

Oh gosh! There's nothing worse than a cold...I hate it when people say it's "just" a cold - colds are MISERABLE! All you want to do is go to sleep but you can't sleep when you can't breathe!

FEEL BETTER SOON!
