Feeling a Bit Discombobulated
Doofy got in this strange position tonight while snuggled up next to me in my recliner and I thought "Yep, that is exactly how I am feeling too". For the past few days I have felt like I was on the verge on coming down with something. I've been taking Lysine and my lemon, honey and ginger syrup to try and fend whatever it is off. I have major Fibro fog and could not even remember the name of my own cousin today...yes, it is that bad. My nose is runny and now my throat is starting to get hot,sore and scratchy and my ears are itching inside and I can feel the pressure building up behind my eardrums. As the night progresses, it is just getting worse. I'm feeling discombobulated. I'm worried because we have Heather's grandmother's graveside service on Monday and I told them I would be there, even though there is bad weather expected. Ginny was family and we do everything we can to be there for our family, especially in their time of need. I was hoping to have the oldest two grandboys stay with us one night this weekend, but it looks like that is not going to happen now. 😟
I am pretty well stocked up on everything I need here if I get sick except for tissues. I have 1 1/2 boxes in the house and another 1/2 a box in the car. Jeff may have to get me some more on his way home from work. There are lots of homemade soups in the freezer, along with some other premade meals and there is always the Instant Pot that I can throw things into since it cooks things up so quickly. I even have bread in the freezer in case I am unable to get any more made. Luckily we still have one loaf left that I made earlier in the week. The guest bed in the back guest bedroom is now cleaned off after the Christmas pile of gifts that was on it and it is ready to go if I or Jeff need to move in there.
For now I am going to go and take a nice hot shower, put on some soft jammies and crawl into bed. I am praying whatever this is passes by the morning, but I'm feeling a bit feverish, Never a good sign. Yuck!
