A Little Under The Weather

I have never felt so tired for so little reason.  For about three weeks now, a cough has interrferred with my sleep to the point where i stagger aimlessly through the day and fall asleep whenever i sid down.
I am keeping my scheduled commitments but i am missing many Al Anon meetings (missing them in every sense of  the wordl

I am treating myself withsudafed and codeine syrup and keep telling myself the cough is subsiding and that i will soon be back to normal.  Today after a seemingly normal night's sleep, i slept through the morning with my face on the dining room table.  I have finally decided that the inactivity is more of a problem than the illness,  whatever it is, so i went for a walk.  It  seems to have helped.  I think i might start feeling better soon.

My mind is a jumble of senseless associations within a fog.  I am hearing voices that are not real and are not making sense.  Am i finally awaking from the illusion that i call the real  world."  That  would be nice, but i  fear otherwise -- and how would  i know?  Anyway the stuff that i thought was solid still feels solid, so, for the time being i will take evidence to the contrary as due to tiredness or dementia.  And maybe i am reading too much Dean Koontz.

I am wishing you the return of strength and enjoyment.

You know this, but- watch the codein. It's rather nasty stuff.

Take care of yourself.

Have you been to the doctor?

Drink more tea with honey and mint. There is also interesting method to treat cough - you should boil a pan full of potatoes, pour off the water, put a pan on a bed, covered yourself with blanket and breathe under potatoes. It is always helpful for any throat and lungs diseases.

Sweetheart, will you go to a doctor? "Hearing voices" sounds like too much codeine and/or high fever ... or something, not right anyways. Don't let it go to pneumonia. Please go get yourself checked out.

You are precious.

Christine has found various cold medicines to be very disruptive to her cognitive and emotional abilities. I would suggest seeing if you feel better without.

You must see a doctor and not self-medicate. Though it's probably a flu virus, that hearing voices is not the best sign...wishing you swift healing.
