On Memorial Day, Carole and I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with daughter Brooke and son-in-law Michael. It was hot outside so I spent most of the time indoors, sitting directly under a ceiling fan in a cold room.
At some point, I became aware that my sinuses and throat were caving in. Thus began the king of all jungle beasts, the summer cold. Today is Thursday and I am homebound - nose flooding, sinus cavities pounding, and voice very deep and about gone. I had so much planned for the first week of summer and those plans are still on the shelf. I'm getting cabin fever, wanting to go outside but afraid that I'll make myself worse.
The floor is open to suggestions on how to overcome this malady. My current medications include Benadryl at night and generic Tylenol Sinus during the day. I may resort to Benadryl during my waking hours, which will no doubt turn them into sleeping hours. So do I simply outlast this or do I change my approach?
