Allergies? Cold?

I have been sick since Sunday with either a nasty cold or allergies that are so bad they have caused a fever for a few days.  Ugh.  I even had trouble sleeping last night--for me, that is the last straw!  Don't mess with me and my sleep.  My throat is either itching or burning, my body and head hurts, my nose is a leaking faucet and I started coughing this morning.  I can barely talk or sing without my voice cracking, so teaching has been a blast.  As soon as I start to think it is a cold, I sneeze or itch my eyes and then revert back to allergies.  Anyone else feeling this awful?  I love this flowering season, but seriously!

OH, I can relate! Finally broke down and got some Allegra and Flonase. It has made SUCH a difference!

Thank you so much for your sweet and encouraging comments. You hit the nail on the head! I am going to read and re-read it! :)

We have all been feeling the same way in our house. I thought it was allergies but on Monday my body finally gave in and I think it's a full blown cold now. I know the feeling. Hope you feel better soon!

I am with you, sister! I am using an "irrigation system" i.e. salt water in the nose...how delightful!

I can't wait to see you again!

I am a HUGE believer in the nasal wash/irrigation system. At first it feels a little like the ocean in your nose, but once you get used to it, your nose feels so much better. I do it every morning and try to convince everyone I know to do the same.

I can't believe I forgot the nasal wash! That was my best friend as a voice major in college. Thank you sooooo much for reminding me. Warm salt water, here I come! :)
