Its raining cats and dogs outside. Perfect weather to get cozy and warm with someone special. Not for me though. I’m stuck here at home wishing I had a geneticist take off the DNA in my body that triggers colds. Yes. I have colds and its all because of my allergic rhinitis (i’m pretty sensitive to dust and dander). I started sneezing last night and from there on, all is history.
Almost literally, I think I have a freakin’ faucet stuck inside my nose at the moment. Clear, sticky liquid coming out, dripping. I usually notice it drippin’ when it gets to my lips. Disgusting! I’ve downed more than 2 gallons of water the whole day and pissed like 20 times. Like seriously! I pissed 20 times today. That’s shouldn’t be normal. I’ve taken my meds but it seems like its making the whole damn illness worse. I haven’t even smoked in 2 days for this reason. Plus, I can’t be in any position other than standing up or sitting down, unless I want to breathe through my mouth the whole time. That’s energy wasting and I don’t want my lips and throat drying out.
Ugh. Having colds ain’t easy. This seems to be the only damn not-so-serious illness that I really hate. I’ve been wiping and blowing my nose a lot and its not pretty. My damn taste is affected. I’ve been tasting something metallic in flavor in my tongue. Not so pleasant.
While battling this fight with my nose, Ice cream cravings kicked in. They say, cold food and colds don’t mix together, because the cold stuff will make it worse! I say that’s bullshit! (but, i think that’s true! HAHAHA) I usually have this cravings for ice cream when I’m depressed (self-diagnosis). Well, I think I am. The fact that I’m staying alone and having this cold (plus that nightmare I had about the upcoming board exam [another story]) is making me sad. Oh God! The thought of that cold concoction (specifically the cheesecake flavor) is making me get my car keys and wallet and drive to the nearest ice cream shop to get a whole pint and eat it alone while watching porn (or a pretty good family movie) inside my room.
The thought of my mucous drippin’ down the ice cream is making me back off
on acting on my cravings for ice cream.
I should just stick to water and let this illness be over by itself
and then the ICE CREAM!
