Writing, Reading and Coughing....

Rocks and Lemons
Well when life throws rocks at your head and just won't let up what do you do? I am not sure but I have been feeling like I just can't catch a break the last week and a half or so. I know the old saying is about lemons but I would take lemons over the mucus in my lungs that won't come up and the green snot when I wake up. I might even take a few rocks to the head if it would end this thing sooner.

I don't like going to the doctor but I have no idea what kind of natural remedy will work so I am switching between Sudafed and Mucinex as the symptoms change. I don't want to go get some other pill that will just mask the symptoms until the things plays out.

I feel like a zombie half the time and I just want my life back. I am crabby and I don't want to be. I am having trouble enjoying the things I love to do and that is making me angry. My life is great right now but I feel like poo and can't enjoy it.

The Good Things
I have a lot of great things going on in my life one is that my hubby is home and he is on a much earlier schedule now. I get to spend a lot of time with him and as soon as I feel like a human again it will be the highlight of my day. Right now I am having trouble with that because he wants me to do things with him and as soon as I start I have a coughing fit.

Then the chickens are growing at astronomical rates and they just love to run around the yard and eat the massive amounts of mosquitoes we have. It would be really fun watching them if the weather would cooperate which I think it will today. Sitting out in the damp cold probably isn't good for my condition...whatever this condition is.

My dog is healthy and on the nice days I would love to go for a walk with her but again the coughing thing is killing me. I go to the farm two days a week and I feel like death for the next day or two.

I am having trouble mustering up the positive outlook I had just two weeks ago but I know it will come back if I can just shake this respiratory thing.

Any ideas on natural remedies would be greatly appreciated as well as prayers.


  1. Hard to be happy when one is sick. Honestly, I wouldn't alternate sudafed and mucinix. I'd take them both at the same time--it might be the only way you can get completely dried up in both places.

    I hope you get better soon.

  2. Thanks I was not sure it was okay to take them both at the same time.

  3. hope you'll be well and feeling good so soon.take care..

  4. I hope you feel better soon... feeling sick SUCKS. Just remember it can't last forever, that should help--a little on the outlook.

  5. I do feel better today! Thanks for all the well wishes. I took Shakespear's advice and took both pills for about 24 hours and now I don't need them anymore!
