Over the years, my seasonal allergies have become worse, and when they're acting up, I often feel just as I would with a cold. I said something about that to a friend not long ago, and she suggested you can always tell when it's a cold because you feel "sick"--not like when it's just allergies. I'm not so sure.
A week or so ago, I felt like I had a cold. Remember when I said I was going to take some Nyquil and go to bed early? I felt sick all that day, but I woke up the next day feeling fine again. Allergies fooled me that time!
So when my allergies started acting up again this weekend, I figured I'd just continue on and ignore it. Guess what? My "allergies" have held on strong for two days now. This "morning" I slept until 12:30 p.m. This evening, I have chills and feel like I'm running a fever. I have a feeling it's not allergies.
Sadly, the Wild Child has the same thing. We think we picked something up at bowling. Besides the balls. Besides the calf injury. It just goes to prove what I've said for years now: Exercise is bad for you.
I think I'll take some Nyquil and go to bed.
