The Koop is sick today

Canada
July 14, 2016 5:11am CST
Doesn't happen often but I'm not feeling well. Started out yesterday evening with a bit of a scratchiness in the back of my throat. By the time my shift ended it was getting pretty bad. Had a miserable night's sleep and don't feel any better this morning. This isn't written as a complaint. It happens to the best of us. I'm probably not going to be around much today. I plan to go back to bed for awhile and hopefully have enough energy to work my shift today. Can't really afford to miss work. Anyway hope everyone here has a good day. I'll be back.

Hope it passes quickly. I hate being sick...especially living alone, no one to moan to except Scar, and he ignores it.

Thanks. I can't really afford any downtime. I bellyache to my wife but don't always get much sympathy.

I'm so sorry to hear about your condition. Do you take vitamin C on a regular basis? Drink plenty of water, that might help. Take care of you.

I drink water like few people you ever met. I take vitamin C when I can find the freaking bottle and try to eat right. Generally I'm pretty resilient.

@koopharper When I was in Bangkok and living alone I didn't want to get sick as nobody would take care of me and I didn't know how to buy meds because I couldn't speak their language. Water and vitamin C were the only things that kept me away from getting wick for 6 months that I was there.

@toniganzon I don't remember the last time I got this sick. Maybe it was last fall or maybe it was over a year ago. I haven't taken a sick day from work since my last kidney stone. That was probably two years ago.

I am on the mend. As long as it stays out of my lungs I'll be fine.

yesterday wasn't to bad. been in a funk today. but my doctor advised my taking Allegra for my allergies and scratchy throat a while back and it has worked. its non drowsy type and i only take half a tab anyway. plus i have COPD so have to be careful what i take. might try it if you don;t want to go to doctor

I don't really have allergy problems which is a good thing because I do have minor asthma. Long as this stays out of my lungs for the most part I'll be fine in a few days.

I wonder where you are, your bed (above) is empty! Maybe you went to your doctor. . . O, I guess you just need a couple of days to rest.

I have a couple of days off now and rest is on the menu. Didn't get off to a real good start last night but we'll have a talk with my son about that later when he gets out of bed.

The extra nap seems to have helped a little. Going to be a long day but I'm off Friday and Saturday. Hopefully I'll be at full strength by Sunday. Thanks.
