It has been four days so far. A cold is supposed to last 7 to 10 days. At least three more to go. Thank the medicine gods for Sudafed and Afrin. Nothing sucks more than having a stuffed up nose. Afrin is the shit! I would die without it.
I hope it doesn’t turn into a chest cold and bacterial infection again like last year. I coughed for months. I’m trying to remember to blow and not snort it back in. Not easy when you don’t always have a rag around.
I’m doing my best to keep my hands washed and sterilized so I don’t pass it along at work. I don’t know if I should stay home. I feel decent otherwise. Just a little weak.
