I might not be online for a few days. I have aquired a cold again. I ache and my nose wont quit due to sneezing. My head and eyes hurt so bad.

ps…coming down with illness can trigger seizures for me so that could be why I had them just the other day.

The runs finally stopped. I think I was empty! I slept til 1 am. I awoke with a real scratchy throat. I guess I must have post nasal drip.
Thats my update for now.

The cna brought my meds to me. Even my pain pill that she said she wasnt supposed to do. She just said not to tell anyone where I live. She took Sunny out for his last pee/poo of the night too. That was very kind of her. She is the staff person I had so much trouble with when I first moved here. All has changed and I think we both respect each other. After my seizure the other night she came up to my room with me and made sure I got into bed ok.
She is so caring now and really goes the extra mile for me.

I am so weak I cannot get the gatorade bottle to open! I will ask for help with it when the cna brings up my meds.


ps…I finally got the bottle open. Boy I am so sick so fast!

Right, you need fluids and electrolytes. If you're not keeping food down, watch your sugar carefully.Your liver will probably release some stored sugar in response to your illness so expect your sugar to do some crazy things. The most important thing is rest and maintain your fluids & blood sugar. Eat when your tummy can handle it.

oh s456! I am running to the bathroom nonstop! I cannot even go down to get my meds. The cna will bring them up but not allowed to bring up my pain med. so if and when this stops, I will go get it. I feel so sick. I have to start drinking gatorade and I hate it.

Careful, Turtle, that sounds more like flu than a cold. Be sure to have a nurse check you out.

I think I hate colds worse than anything, nothing can make you feel so miserable. But it is "only a cold". Hope it blows (haha) over and you feel better soon.
