Feeling cruddy with a sore throat
Thursday, April 07, 2011
Started coming down with a sore throat last night. Still, I was able to get to sleep with no problems, and slept well, but woke up feeling even sicker this morning. It's a real bummer, because I'm having a good day for once with the pain issues, haven't had to take a pain pill so far today, only to be sidelined by a sore throat.
I've been drinking tea with honey in it, and I've had chicken soup too. Can't do orange juice because it's too hard on my stomach. I don't know if I am getting a cold or if it's allergies, but it could be allergies because about 2 days ago I started getting pollen alerts in my email. I can't take allergy meds because of the side effects, and I've tried just about all of them, over the counter and prescription.
The weather is beautiful today; in the low 50's and sunny. I tried to pick up some of the debris in the yard from the winter, but was only able to work on it a few minutes. It was hurting my back, and with the cold symptoms felt light headed. That's also when my tummy started to feel icky from Tuesday's chemo. So I gave up and went back inside for the day.
I thought about trying a short stability ball workout, but I just don't have the energy for it today. I will try to tomorrow if my symptoms are better.
