Being ill

Grrrr I feel so grotty.

So, I went out on saturday night and I drank a lot of vodka and just a touch of beer. I had the usual feeling very tired on the sunday, not a hangover- just tired, but then I didn't sleep a jot on Sunday night, so on monday mornign I woke feeling both sick and headachey- and with a funny feeling in my chest/throat area. I started to feel better later in the day after I'd had a small bite to eat, but come late at night, my throat started really hurting- and then another night of sleepless dreaming and I woke this morning unable to keep my eyes open and with my throat killing me. My mum had a struggle trying to look down my throat to see if i had a tonsillitis. Every instruction she gave me like "head up" took about five minutes to register with me haha.

I went back to sleep (missing college, grr) and woke up later and I've had a bite to eat and a shower... But I just hate being ill! I've got too much work to do and I've got a date tomorrow. How do I make myself better?

I'm in the same boat =( I drank a lot of whiskey and smoked a lot last week, so when I woke up on Sunday morning with my chest hurting I assumed it was just that, but yesterday I completely lost my voice. I went into college but kept collapsing and I couldn't focus on anything, so I went home early and I had to turn the heating all the way up and bring my duvet down so I didn't freeze to death. I was intending to go back in today but when I got up this morning I still couldn't talk and I was coughing up my lungs so I have another day off. And the annoying thing is, while the only thing I want to do is curl up on the sofa with some tea and drift in and out of sleep, I've had to pour coffee down my throat and do work!

I'm taking this Buttercup syrup stuff which is meant to be good, and Soothers (the throat sweet things)

Boots are giving away free vitamin C if you buy cold and cough stuff. I bought a pack of Soothers or Lockets or something, and got a whole bunch of vitamin C remedies. It's pretty good!

The boy I'm going on a date with says he has a cold too. He's apologised in case he gave it to me... which he totally did. i also think he gave me a cold sore.


i'm never kissing anyone ever again.

SNAP!

I knew it was coming for about 2 weeks, I'd manage to miss one earlier in the year that my boyfriend had but friday it was officially a cough and a cold. I nearly went home from work but stuck it out. Saturday I could hardly move without my head really hurting it was an odd kind of hurt though, I had to sqeeze my eyes and kinda make odd noises to deal with the pain when I moved it was so bad. I couldn't keep my eyes open later in the day but didn't actual sleep just lay there, I got up and watched tv later. Wasn't as bad last couple of days, but I have been sick from coughing too much (eew sorry) and had a coughing fit in the middle of the night when I hadnt had any sleep anyway, I had yesterday and today off work but I'm going in tomorrow cuz I'm better Happy

I HATE those vitamin C sachets, I hate 'medicated blackcurrent' flavour and the granuales did not feel nice on my sore throat lol I got buttercup syrup and a nasal spray from work though, kinda good I work there otherwise I would have had to go to asda or something instead of being able to go straight home and discount! I can get a free mascara now cuz I have enough points on my card from the amount of times I've used it Happy

I'm blackcurrant lemsipping it, And vitamin C supplements! Things seem to be going ok.

Dates with colds are fun. Not that the cold was in any way prominent on the date. I just want to let you all know I had a smashing time.

Haha I'm glad. So are you seeing this fella again?

I went into college for one lesson yesterday because my English teacher is getting really pissed off that I'm missing lessons, but she just ignored me and I felt awful so just went over to Tim's after that and slept most of the day. I didn't go into lessons today but I had a driving lesson picking me up from college so I had to go in (and avoid my teachers!). I feel like shit now but I need to go in tomorrow so I can go in for work on Saturday (I need the money so badly).

Something really is going round - it looks like I may have caught it from my friend Helen, and it seems I've passed it on to someone else =P

I was surprised I was fit for driving, actually! I was a bit dizzy but didn't want to have to wait till my next lesson and it turned out okay =)

Yep!

In college I took the morning off on Tuesday because when I woke up I didn't think I could breathe haha... And when I went in in the afternoon my teacher was upset with me because apparently I was supposed to be in to help her teach people to knit. Which surely, is her job.
