Rough shape…

The news of the day is that I am in rough shape.  I still have the Clu (I must say B-Dubya, I am looking forward to being Clu-less).  I started having struggles with robust coughing spasms a couple of days ago, but now they are getting worse and worse.  My lower abs are strained I have been coughing so violently (that is not how I want to exercise my abs).  Between blowing my nose and coughing myself into a frenzy, a stomachache set in.  Uff-dah.

Mike thinks I should take something that knocks me out so that I can get a good night’s rest, but I don’t typically take those types of medication.  All my years as a single mom left me with the imprint that I needed to be alert at a moment’s notice even in the middle of the night – just in case.  As such, medication such as Nyquil are out of the question.  Instead, I think I will opt for the wildly sexy VapoRub and hope that I can get some rest. Such is the magic of my life…I know…I really need my own reality show. ;-)

I teach at NDSU...but I remain a student of life with all the enthusiasm that entails. My favorite saying is, "Sometimes you have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down." In the new forty that is what I am doing...building my wings.

    I think you might need to see a doctor for that cough. Many years ago I had a cough like that and finally succeeded in tearing some stomach muscles and separating a back muscle from the bone–all of which took weeks to heal (to say nothing of major pain). You’re probably right about the Nyquil which might interfere with your body’s determination to loosen and expel gunk.
