I am sick.

Not throwing-up, diarrhea sick. Just the headache, stuffy head, sore throat, extreme fatigue variety.

But it still sucks.

I even had to have Barry come home from work today because I was not fit to take care of Noah and the dog. How sad is that? My head hurt so bad and I was so tired that I couldn't take care of THE DOG. Oy vey.

Why was I so tired, you ask? I was up until 2:30 am last night because I couldn't sleep. Oh, I was tired all right, my eyes would hardly stay open! But I couldn't get comfortable, and my throat was burning to the point of not being able to breathe. So at about that time of night, when my mind is totally not right, I finally decide that the only way to get to sleep is to do a shot of whiskey. Sounds reasonable, right? Here's my reasoning: #1, the alcohol will kill any bacteria that's trying to make a home in my throat, as well as numb it so I can sleep. #2, alcohol always makes me sleepy. So, that is what I did. Made my way into the kitchen at 2:30 to pour myself a shot. Let's just say that lit me right up! But it must have done the trick, because the last time I looked at the clock, it was 2:51.

So there you go, folks...whiskey - the best medicine out there, apparently!

Yeah, a good shot of tequila for me. Then its off to bed. Alcohol...just don't abuse it!

If you add honey and some water to the whiskey it also helps when you can't sleep b/c you are coughing. The combo kills the phlegm.

I gargle hard liquour when I'm sick. Sometimes I accidentally swallow some too ;)

I guess maybe I'll have to try that. I came home from work early today because I feel awful, and the reason I'm not asleep right now is that my throat hurts so bad I can't sleep. I'm usually not a whiskey drinker, but whatever works. Feel better soon!
