This cold seems to be getting lots of us down
Well I had /have it , was dreading it , as i get sinus problems & when I have a cold it usually goes straight to them
This time I accepted for the first time in as long as I can remember I had a cold like thousands of others , I didnt need to go running to GP , not unless i felt I had an infection
It was not easy , but been on this site . trying to give kind words when I could helped take my mind of it & also seeing others were suffering & getting through & were just as worried as me helped
So 3 weeks later , feel drained from it , as you are right , i feel i take twice as long to shake things of 1st because I am already run down as anxiety does to us 2nd accepting it & resting till it goes , this time even though it wasnt 100% i did accept it more
I still have headache , still run down , last night I couldnt believe what I blew from my nose , but I feel really proud that I have behaved like a "normal person " well nearly !
A broken nose will certainly not be helping how he feels though , which is an added extra he has there
For me when I am of on one (as i call it ) just reassurance , mainly been told people have or no people that have the same & they are ok & so will i be , if that fails with me then someone saying "well if you are really worried , go to GP " that is the one that makes me sit & think "how bad is this , how much is in my head ? I realise sometimes its in my head & others I pop of for a visit
I am sorry I bet this has been of no use what so ever !
Feel for you , i have a long suffering hubby had to put up with all this , i think he pretends to be listening when he isnt & just makes the right noises in the right places (which sometimes he gets wrong ) then some how he has learnt to switch of on me !
He is lucky to have you
