Week with a cough isn’t easy

away-from-the-blogI never meant to be away from blogging for the entire week, but this unrelenting cough has been torture! Coughing all day, everyday, plus working full-time, has caused me more fatigue than normal, so I have not had the energy to write at all. Besides dealing with this nasty and evil cough, last week was extremely busy for me.

As I already mentioned, I have been dealing with a cough for well over a week, hell it has been well over a month now! I already know that it takes my body FOREVER  to get over a simple cold, but honestly I haven’t even been to a doctor. Healthy ingredients for strengthening immunityMy reasons for not going to the doctor might be silly, but in my opinion they are valid. One reason is I am in a new city and haven’t established an actual doctor yet. I know this is something I should have already taken care of, but it just isn’t easy. Hell I know there are not many MS Specialists where I am living, which is frustrating! Another reason I haven’t gone to just some random doctor is because they ALWAYS try prescribing an antibiotic and ALWAYS ignore the bright red warning sign that shows up due to the Gilenya. Gilenya interacts with many medications and it can be very dangerous. I just do not want to deal with all the ignorance that comes along with healthcare in the United States. 

home-selling-6Another major thing that happened last week was we closed on the sale of our townhouse! I had mixed emotions about this because it was the first home my husband and I bought together. There are many memories within the walls of that home, some are great and others are horrible, but it was our home. I am beyond happy the townhouse sold in only 3 days, but it is still bittersweet! The  great thing about this is, we are down to only one mortgage payment!

With so much going on, good and bad, I am thrilled we have a three-day weekend! I am hoping that having these days off without any “must do’s” I will get over this pain in the 1264359-georgia-may-jagger-quote-drink-lots-of-water-get-lots-of-sleep-andass cold and start feeling human again! I never would have thought a simple cold could take this much out of me. I mean I haven’t even had the energy to do much of anything, which is very unlike me. For the past two days I basically get out of bed and move to the other side of the house to the couch, where I typically fall back to sleep while watching TV. 

I am making an effort to get over this cold, but my goodness it is taking way too long! I already take a Vitamin C supplement everyday, so I am not sure what more to do. All the congestion that has come along with this cold has completely killed my appetite, but I am staying hydrated, so I guess that is a plus. Let me ask y’all a question, when you get what should be a simple cold, does it take a long time to go away?

I hope y’all are having a nice and restful weekend! I am working on getting through emails, comments and your posts, which hopefully I will be caught up by the end of the long weekend! Playing catch up while my head is feeling very foggy isn’t easy, but I am trying! ❤As always I do appreciate you stopping by my site and your patience with my catch up time. No matter what I might be dealing with, I am always sending y’all LOTS of love ❤, comfort and positive vibes!

My signature heart

❤Always, Alyssa❤

  1. Dearest Alyssa! Oh, lady, you shouldn’t push yourself at all. I used to not be bothered at all by common colds. Now, after chronic illness entered my life, a cold can last for a month or more. Our immune systems are already overloaded! Put a ‘normal’ sickness on top of that… big trouble. Rest. Rest. Rest and stay hydrated. Don’t forget to go after it with OTC meds. Theraflu and Theracold make nice warm medicated tea packets. There are some great honey cough drops. Did I mention, “REST!” Ha! Feel better.

  2. Im so sorry you are sick. I too have been fighting a cough and feeling like death. I actually had pneumonia and feel like I may be relapsing. It sucks when something so simple takes forever to go away. I have been on medicine. My doctor is really awesome. Luckily with Tecfidera, I havent had any ill side effects. I am going back to the doctor today after only being on OTC meds for about 10 days because it is getting worse again. UGH! I hope you feel better really soon and Congrats on closing on the house sale!!

    • Thank you so much Jen! This very simple cough has been insane and making me feel terrible. I have been taking OTC meds for a while now, but the cough isn’t going away. I hate that you have also been fighting a cough. I hope your cough goes away soon!!! Thank you for the congrats on the home sale!!!
