I have a cold! I am sure it is nothing but a cold (albeit a nasty one), but I am miserable. I wish I could have a nose transplant. I don't care what it looks like as long as it is not alternately stopped up / running / sneezing uncontrollably. Unfortunately I can not take decongestants, as they make my heart race and give me nightmares and a general feeling of unease. I'd rather feel miserably ill.
On the bright side, one of my lovely coworkers brought in an early Christmas gift of a bottle of shiraz and a bottle of ginger scented bubble bath this morning. I indulged in both, simultaneously, tonight. It didn't help with the actual symptoms of my cold very much, but it did take my mind off of them for a while.
