Go figure...

Well, the cough that I thought was getting better took a turn for the worst last night as I started coughing to the point of being sick not one, not twice, but thrice! Gah!! I'm so frustrated right now but that's probably because I didn't get a whole lot of sleep. Today however, hasn't been too bad and I'm wondering if the inhaler I was taking for my asthma wasn't part of the problem. I didn't take it this morning like I normally would and I haven't had nearly the amount of trouble with the coughing as I have the past few days. Perhaps I have discovered the root of the problem. We'll see.

I think I'm just going to take it nice and easy this week and until this virus is gone. B wants me to go back to the health centre but I dont' know if it's really worth it. I'd at least like to see if things get better now that I'm not taking the stupid inhaler. I mean, it was loosening up the crap in my chest but I think it was really causing much of the coughing at the same time.

I'm really struggling with the weight loss these past few weeks. I definitely use food as a coping method, so with being sick and all, I've just wanted to pig out on comfort foods. Of course comfort foods are never healthy foods! Thankfully I didn't gain any weight this past week but I also didn't lose any. I know that I'll feel better about myself if I get it under control and yet I keep resisting and eating poorly. I guess old habits die hard. I do feel better when I'm eating properly and yet I still go for those junk foods that are so delicious! It's got to stop. If I managed to stop eating the potato chips, I can stop eating the junk foods too. It will just be a bit harder! LoL Perhaps I should set aside a limit instead of cutting them out completely...ease the transition a bit. I'm not sure but I know that I need to do something because I'm not very happy with the way things are right now. I'll figure it out.

Ack... I hope you're feeling better soon... sometimes those colds just wont' go away!
Tell me about it and the health centre says that the one that's been going around has been hanging on for 3-4 weeks with some people!!! Gah!
On no, I'm sorry to hear you still aren't feeling much better yet! Gag reflexes suck. *hugs*

I know how hard it can be to eat well, especially when you aren't feeling well or using food as comfort. Maybe can you try to consume a lot of soups while you're sick? Does that make you feel better? They are often very low on the cal/points system I think. If you fill up on liquid things, then there won't be as much room for more solid badies. Worst case scenario you let yourself slack til you feel better, and then get back on the bandwagon.
Yeah, it's really crummy but I haven't had as much trouble with it since I stopped taking that damned inhaler! Damn the nurse telling me I should keep on it!

I could have soup but I really haven't been wanting soup at all. I find it makes me feel weird if I eat a lot of soup. I think I'll be fine once I get out of this sick state and back to my normal self.... I hope! LoL
