Sick in bed with a cold

It is so annoying being sick. I can’t DO anything except skulk around the house. It is no fun.

Yesterday, I took two doses of pseudoephedrine in the form of cold and flu tablets. It can make you feel better, but it can affect your sleep. And last night, my hand went to sleep in the night. Pseudoephedrine constricts your blood vessels. That is why it is not recommended for people who have high blood pressure or are taking blood pressure medications.

Cold and flu tablets also don’t cure your disease. Only time and rest will let your body fight off this disease. For those reasons, I am thinking that I will not take cold and flu tablets today and just fight my cold naturally. Lemon, ginger and honey drinks is a great way to soothe my throat.

It means that I am going to have a crappy weekend, but hey. At least I won’t give my cold to anyone else!
