First Sickness of 2011

I am officially SICK for the first time in 2011. 

I was doing amazing this winter. I haven't been sick since sometime in November, and it was only for about two days. Usually I'm sick a couple of times. So it's my time to be sick, I get that. 

But can't I just get some sleep? 

Yesterday was the first truly bad day of my cold. And yes, that's all it is, a head cold. 

I had the runny nose all through work (fun times, when you're working with the public), and it got completely stuffed up when I get home and the body aches got started. Minimal stuff, here. 

But now it's after 1AM and I am SO tired. I was asleep. With a plugged nose, I am forced to breathe through your mouth. Which dries out my mouth, and in my case tonight, dries out a little spot in the back of my throat on the left side just enough so I wake up in a coughing fit. 

So here I sit, with a cup of water and a straw, trying to aim the water at that little dry spot, hoping to lessen the chances of waking up in another coughing fit the next time I attempt sleep. 

I don't want to be a zombie tomorrow. 

On the bright side, I work my usual afternoon shift tomorrow (today) so I can rest most of the day. Thursday is a totally different story. So let me be sick, I know it's my time, just let me sleep. Please?

If you're having trouble breathing at night, maybe those Breathe Right strips would help? I like them! And medicate (if you can).

Aww mama, I hope you get better REAL soon! Being sick and pregnant is the worst.
