I know you've seen this before....

but a picture is worth a thousand words!A horrible, very bad, no good cold caught up with me and laid me low. And it was fast!! I began sneezing yesterday morning, by supper time I was fully congested, coughing like crazy and trying to stop my drippy nose *VBS*
Sleep came little to not at all, and I was up around 4 to see if I could sleep sitting up. No such luck...and that's a weird thing about me! Today seems to be more of the same. I'd love to sleep, but can't breathe laying down. I've sewn a few more 2.5" strips for another Strippy quilt, but even that is taxing. I'm headed back to my chair, my quilt and a hot beverage....hope all of you have missed this bug. Hugs, Finn

Oh, you poor Dear. I can sympathize -- I FINALLY got rid of mine. I was down and out for the better part of 10 days. I know what you mean about not being able to breathe when you lie down -- I spent a LOT of time in the recliner. 24 hour Sudafed helps.

Oh my! I hope you are feeling well soon.

Oh my I hope you're feeling better soon. There is nothing worse than having a cold and congestion.

Amelia said...

Certainly hope this is a short lived spell of feeling bad.

Sara said...

OH Finn, I hope you feel better soon. I hate feeling sick and not wanting to do anything. Hopefully you will be back to normal in no time!

Quilt Pixie said...

hope you're soon able to get some sleep -- I'm sure that'd help you feel better :-)

Jeanne said...

Oh, no! That darn bug is everywhere. Take care and I hope you are well again very soon.

I sure hope you get to feelling better soon. the picture is one I used to set up every monday morning when I was still working. In fact, it is still in my bathroom although I laugh at it more now: I used to identify. Get well soon.

Chris said...

I had it too. Nyquil helped me sleep. Aspirin and juice go me through the days....

Gina said...

Oh my, hope this bad spell will not last long... Take care of yourself and give Ebby a good hug.
Get well soon and lots of hugs from all your bloggers (you'll feel tired by then and will have a good night's sleep *VBS*)

Sudafed and then I put vicks or robotusin on tissue and put it into my ears! It helped keep things opened up in my head! Sleep, lots of sleep (when you can!) About 7-10 days is right! Hang in there it gets better!

Jean said...

Sorry, I should probably put Jean C. on my comments!

Hope you feel better soon Finn - there's nothing more wretched than feeling ill enough to need lots of sleep but then being so stuffed up that you can't sleep because breathing is so difficult - take care ((hugs))

ROZ said...

Hope that you feel better soon. when I had bronchitis, I put a vaporizor in my room at night to help me breathe.

DanainDFW said...

I'm right there with you - mine started Thursday, but Friday was when it started getting bad. I called in sick to work today. Glad I only work on Mondays as I wouldn't be fit for work tomorrow (Tuesday), either.

Hope we both feel better soon.

Cher said...

oh my...hope today finds you over the worse of this terrible sounding stuff! healing thoughts and warm fuzzies!
