My "Cold" Routine

That lovely pile only took me an hour
     I have a cold, and I'm a complete baby when it comes to colds. I never used to be...but last year I had a cold all winter that got into my lungs and turned into walking pneumonia. So when I get a cold now, I baby it. Today I had two tests again which I somehow got through, so now I'm ready to start my "Cold" routine. This includes:

  • Laying in bed with a box of tissues (preferably ones with aloe/lotion) feeling miserable.
  • Drinking juice straight from the container because when you have a cold, ain't no one got time for cups.
  • Standing in the shower with my hair in a bun, because I don't want to take the time to actually wash it, and letting the steam loosen up anything in my lungs.
  • Binge watching a TV show cough cough Supernatural/Gossip Girl or a Movie series.
  • Calling my mom and demanding she bring me every cold medicine ever invented, while also complaining about how I'm probably going to die and figuring out who will get my cat.
  • Think about how much I miss being able to smell things.
  • Say repeatedly how having a cold is so much worse than having the flu.
    So yeah. This is basically my life when I get a cold. I'm not talking about a little sniffle here and there, because I can deal with that. I'm talking about the stuffy/runny nose, heavy head feeling, headache, fatigue, cough, and sore throat type of cold. It's not a fun time. 
     I'm gonna go watch Princess Diaries (because I'm feeling it, okay?) and lay in bed. Hopefully everyone else is healthy and having a good week!
