Colds suck

So I have been snotty most of the week. I have been on a steady diet of Claritin D during the day and NyQuil (I love you, you motherfucking Q) at night. It's been good times.

The wonder of decongestant is it's miraculous drying abilities. I was so parched I was going through 4 liters of water during work alone. I had chapped lips and everything, it sucked.

And now thanks to the chapped lips I woke up with a lovely cold sore! It hurts and makes me sad. The only cool thing is that I don't get them on the outer edge of my lips so you can see them. No I get them on the inner edge of my lips. This is good because you can't see it, but bad because when I close my mouth just touching my lips together hurts.

Oh and the sinus pressure hasn't gone away yet either. I have an ear popping sensation all the time in my ears and on either side of my nose, which also makes my head feel all wonky and vertigo-y.

Hopefully I will be feeling more normal soon. Or as normal as I can feel.

Glad you're on the mend. Snot Queen.

i'm glad you're on the mend.

try an antihistamine to help with your ears. sometimes the mucus membranes become irritated and need to be relaxed. antihistamines help with that. i find it works to drain my eustatian tubes and reduce vertigo.
