The title of this post says it all.

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been battling through a mild yet persistent cold. On-and-Off coughing. Sinus pressure (in the beginning). Constant mucous/snot build-up. Runny nose. No sneezing, thankyouverymuch. Then, just when things are starting to look good, & I’m just about over the peak of my cold, BAM!!! I get some sort of illness, symptoms akin to a stomach bug or something like that.

It started a few nights ago when I decided to partake in some Vietnamese phở for dinner. I don’t think I should’ve ordered the soup noodles with the barely cooked beef in it. I think that’s what brought on this sickness I now am experiencing. (I probably didn’t let the beef cook long enough in the hot soup before taking a bite.) So now, I am having trouble keeping my food down. I can barely even so much as think about food without my stomach turning & waves of queasiness overtake me, causing me to want to dry heave repeatedly. Even as I’m typing this post, I’m struggling to hold my nausea at bay.

I surely feel as though these past few weeks, I just can’t seem to catch a break. One illness after another. I do take care of my body & my wellbeing. I just hope all of this blows over soon. I don’t know how much more of this I can take.

Cheers, I guess.

Today’s song of the day:

Well, my whole family is sick; I mean really sick.  My sister has been battling a cold on-and-off for weeks, a virus that she got from her kids.  My sister’s two (most awesomest) kids also have been sick on-and-off for the past few weeks.  My nephew got it the worst with a severe sore throat, shortness of breath, fever spells, diarrhea, & etc.  At least my niece is all well & good now, but last week during my nephew’s birthday everybody was on the outs.  My sister was on the down-slope of her virus roller coaster, my brother-in-law was just starting to feel that first-sign tickle in his throat, my mom was battling a runny nose & my dad was developing a nasty & severe chest congestion (one he’s been getting at the exact same time every year for the past 3 years).

Oh, & did I mention that I’ve been battling a cold virus + fever on-and-off ever since the Thanksgiving holidays?  I just recently discovered that I now have an ear infection to go along with my tapering sinus congestion & the last remnants of my own cold virus.  My fiancee was also on the outs as well, battling sinus & chest congestion which has since been remedied by taking lots of Mucinex™ & his mom’s miracle Cantonese-style herbal soup.

Needless to say, this has been an awkward 3 weeks.  We have all battled & powered through our various symptoms & viruses.  Some of us are still on this wacky roller coaster ride of ailing symptoms.  Some of us are just about to cross that metaphorical finish line.  I just hope everyone of us is well straight through into the new year.
