I've slept half the day away already and I hate when that happens because it feels like I've wasted the day. But I'm pretty sick at the moment so my sleeping patterns are all out of whack and the worst part is I can't take any time off work this week because one of the other girls has started her vacation.
It's a pretty bad cold that started with a scratchiness in my throat on Thursday and is now a full-blown 'oh-god-please-kill-me' cough that hurts my whole body. On top of that it's that time of the month again which I think is in part to blame for the cold; it brings my immune system right down and combined with changing climates suddenly and god knows what someone on the plane might have had it's suddenly TA-DAAAA~ ILLNESS!
Does anyone know quick-fixes for a sore throat? The internet said a combination of lemon, honey, vinegar and hot water. It surprisingly doesn't taste as vile as it sounds, in fact it's almost pleasant, and it does provide very instant relief, so it's quite nice for me to sip during the day, but I don't want to consume so much vinegar and also I don't think it's helping in the long-term. I've also rubbed Vicks Vapo Rub into my throat and wrapped a scarf over it because apparently this works for some people too.
I JUST... my job is working on the phone and I can't do that with a sore throat/almost no voice! And I won't be able to get any doctor's appointment today... not that I want one because they'll only tell me what I already know.
