I've got a chest cold that started out as an allergy with nasal congestion, itchy eyes, stopped-up nose. Well, yesterday, I had NO appetite at all. Late in the evening I got queasy and felt like I was gonna vomit. I ate a pretzel rod to try and settle my stomach. I then managed to get down half a bowl of Progresso chicken noodle soup. I went and helped mom clean offices and when we got home, I ate some jello with some fat free cool whip on it. I ate a small slice of apple pie. Well, a few hours later, had to make it come up...I went to bed, took my meds along with Restoril (needed a good deep sleep I felt). A few hours later, I wake up to have a bm.
Today, I've been coughing my brains out and feel really warm (not feverish). Unfortunately, I've been having some anxy feelings and have been trying to fight them off! I am NOT phobic in the sense of thinking that maybe I have some sort of really serious illness that's disguised itself as a cold, so I know it's not cuz o f anything like that...I haven't had a real cold in several years as I take vitamins and garlic oil capsules and they truly do help!
Anyhow, I'm just wondering if being sick physically aggravates the anxiety??? I've had a lot of stuff happening this year and so maybe I'm just more vulnerable to negative thoughts. I just don't know. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
Today is here
And soon will be gone.
Use it wisely
Before it's too late
Remember to love
And forget to hate.
