Winter chill, doctors visits and other curiosities...

Well if we weren't sure before, we can be certain now that it is officially winter. Yesterday it was O degrees when I went to work in the morning. Not that I'm complaining because, I'll confess that both Ryan and I are wishing for snow and are feeling a little Christmasy (is that a real word?).

But before the holidays arrive, I'd really like to get rid of this cold/cough/whatever you want to call it. I keep going up and down, feeling better and then worse and then better etc. My doctor intially though it was an underlying allergy that was being iritated by a virus (that I got from Ryan-thanks Love). But four weeks later, I still feel like shit and with the cold weather settling in, my damn nose won't stop running. But the scary part, the part that worries me, is that my lungs rattle when I breathe. I mean, when I exhale they make a similar sound to a stomach rumbling. And there's so much crap in my throat sometimes that I have a hard time breathing.

Allergy my ass!

So I think before the week is out I am going to need to seek a second opinion. Time to go to the clinic.

Maybe I'll ask about the other wierd things... like I am SOOO tired all th time (just like last year-could just be because I am sick) but the other strange thing is that I am unusually hungry in the last few days (feed a cold, starve a fever?). I mean really, I can't make it from lunch to dinner without having something to eat. And last night, we had dinner, and I'll admit I didn't have too much stirfry, but I ate enough so that I wasn't hungry (trying to get back on the wieght loss gig) but by 9 pm I was so hungry I couldn't stand it and had to eat a granola bar. Even stranger was that by the time we went to bed at 11pm, I was hungry yet again.

I must be going crazy!...
