    Just a vent, I guess. I just had 2 whole days without a bug, sinus infection or the like.

    Yesterday a cold crept up on me. Big deal,,,well, I am preparing for a (sorry guys!) stool test.

    This means surten meds cannot be taken, anti inflammatories to mention one, aspirin another- for a week before I test, and then I test for 3 days (a total of 10 days without.

    Of course I had to be in a flare AND have a cold. The flare have me down for count, I can barely move because of the fatigue mainly, but also the aches and pains.

    Then add a cold with additional body aches and a fever.

    Tylenol is suggested in the instruction booklet for my stool test, but that is like taking sugar pills for me.

    I could as well make ear rings outta those Tylenols,,,LOL! (Hey, there's a business idea!)

    I feel SOOO bad physically. I have some hydrocodone in the house, but I am already too fatigued and have to stay awake and function for my kids (ha! dream on!).

    Longterm stuff would be garlic and all that, chicken soup, whatever, but I am sick RIGHT NOW.

    I am really whining now, I know, I just needed to let it out. All of this fatigue makes me all weepy today!

    Any pat on the back would be welcome.
