Snuffy 1 and Snuffy 2.
That is what I was calling myself and my sons g/f's little girl today.
I had to give her mom a ride to the doctor and she and I spent the day doing some errands, went to get breakfast, etc.
But mostly, we sat in the car waiting on her mom, and sniffing, snuffing, snorting and snotting!!!
And a little coughing on the side.
I didnt feel that bad this morning. I think it was being in the car with the heat on high dried me out and made me feel much worse.
When I left to go pick them up, I did not think I would be going anywhere.
The snow on my window, turned out to be packed down hard as a brick, icy and frozen to my car windows.
Even with scraping, it took a very long time to get it thawed out.
So, after I came home, I felt just how bad I felt.
I couldnt breath thru my nose.
I have no vaporizer.....because I loaned it to them for the little sick child.
So, I fashioned one out of a facial steamer.
Can only use it for a few minutes at a time, but it works for that long.
I despise taking Nyquil and those types of medications, as they only seem to make me drunk and jittery.
I do not sleep on Nyquil.
I twitch, I toss, I turn, I jump and I jerk all thru the night.
So, I have been taking prescription mucinex and Alka Seltzer for colds.
If I could just open my nostrils up, I think I would feel better.
No real body aches, and the sore throat is gone.
So for the moment, its just my breathing.
Not much to report on diet and exercise today. I spent the biggest part of the day in the car waiting.
And came home and had a burger for supper with some mushrooms and milk.
Eating isnt easy when you cant breathe thru your nose.
