Starve a cold ???

I know its supposed to be feed a cold, starve a fever.  But I have ZERO appetite.

Friday I woke up with a horrid headache.  It lasted all day and I barely moved from the bed to the couch.  Not doing much and barely even cooking anything for Lori, she did a good job at foraging.

I actually thought it was from eating too much dairy and sugar on Thursday.  I mean I didn’t eat a lot of dairy but it was WAY more then I have had this year combined.  But by Saturday when the throat was sore, the headache had gone nowhere and Lori too was feeling the same we realized we caught a cold.

This morning I started singing “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” because my voice has never been this bass.  All that did was put it in my head as an ear worm all day.

My symptoms are mostly this headache and a sore throat in the morning.  No coughing, no sneezing, okay maybe a little sneezing, but no stuffiness.  Exhaustion and headache.  Good times.  Unfortunately for Lori it has already hit her lungs after the plague cough from this Summer, and she has a cough again.

I am floating in tea, tons of tea, but the idea of actual food is not appealing.

    Booo! But that’s a version of cold that’s been circulating. I’ve had it a few times. Full on exhaustion and achy sinuses and head, with sneezing but no stuffiness. Scratchy, irritated throat. Sorry you both got it. Each time I’ve had it, it lasted 2-3 weeks.

    Miserable! Don’t worry about not eating, but do keep sucking down those fluids. And get Lori to the doc!
