I am blind

Does anyone else get head colds in their eyes? I mean... I could handle the sore body, drippy nose, slight fever if it didn't come with weepy eyes. I can't even watch tv when I'm like this. It sucks.

Despite my blindness I took the dog for a walk around the block. Poor fella. Almost a week of my being sick... he's such a good dog, sleeping by my side trying to snuggle the fever out of me.

Walking outside was a relief. Cool crisp air against my cheeks reminded me that there is a world outside my bed. It felt great to stretch my legs and get my muscles moving again. The most walking I've done is from the bed to the couch and back to the bed again.

Being sick reminds me of when I first had CFS. It was a good day if I could get dressed... going outside for a walk was a luxury. What a small sickly life I had back then. Thank goodness this cold will only last a few more days. When my CFS was full blown it felt like it would never end.

Hooray Amy's soup. The first day I made Jessica's Garlic Sicky SOup from LDV (pg 102) but now I am so sick I am barely able to brush my hair. Gerry took good care of me on his days off... we've been watching the first season of LOST o and that's been fun... even if I can't see. *laugh* Amy's soup is soooo comforting when I'm sick cause I don't have to do anything but pour it into a mug. Nuke it and then eat. My recyle box is full of cans.

I'm not sure this post is making sense. Is it? Hello? Is anyone out there?
ok. Back to the couch... my eyes can't handle all this typing.
*sniffle*

Awwww, poor you.

Hang in there.

Soup and junk TV will get you through!

And yes the post does make sense in a delirious kinda way :-)

One of my kids used to get an eye infection every time she got a cold.

Pulsatilla might help with your eyes being affected by the cold. It helps my daughter who used to get the infections!

Thanks Deb
Homeopathic remedies work really well on me... I'll have to try that out next time.

You could rub pepperment oil on your feet and put socks on to get rid of the fever. You could also take a bath in Ginger.

but don't do the peppermint at the same time as homeopathics :).
