July 3 - Trying to recover

Since past 10-15 days, I have a soar throat, on and off runny nose and cough for the past 10 days. I Initially thought it was an allergy and took Zyrtec. Last Sunday the runny nose and sneezing become worse and by monday morning had a slight fever. Then switched to Sudafed, took it 3 times a day and by Tuesday runny nose stopped and was feeling much better. There was this lingering cough and cold. Over the counter medicines make me very drowsy so since Tuesday I was taking the medicine only in the nights. This morning when I got up, I was sick of the cold & cough, and decided to take full dose of medication today and relax. I took one dose after breakfast and napped for couple of hours, another dose after lunch and napped again for another couple of hours. Now I am getting ready to have my dinner, take another dose of medicine and dose of to sleep. Hopefully my cold and cough will clear up by tomorrow.  If it doesn't by Tuesday, I am going to see the doctor first thing Tuesday morning.  Wish you all a happy July 4th weekend!
