 So this is my breakfast this morning. Sinus meds, vitamens, emergen-c times two flavors, yogurt and banana. While I am letting my red morracoan clay mask dry and detox my face.

The idea of being alone now as completely sunk in. Along with a topsy-turvey stomach, sinus congestion, and over all stress relief hangover...

What I thought was just a slight sinus infection (took meds, sinus' cleared, sore throat vanished- felt better for four days) has come back with a wicked vengenace in the last 24 hours. I have a brutal, rib rattling cough that expells a nasty tasting yuck onto my tongue and leaves my lungs burning for minutes after a single cough. I have a fever of 101.5 (thank god it isn't higher), a stopped up nose (after another amazing sinus clearing yesterday, behind the wheel, on the road, seriously not cool) I feel better in bursts, like I felt better for a bit and brought down 10 40lb bags of wood pellets into the basement, took a shower in hopes it would break u…
