Never a Better Time for Medical Mondays!

So March.... I can't remember a thing!

The last week I have been sick with either a head cold or allergies. I tried to explain to my husband that from the nose down it felt like allergies and from the head up it felt like a cold. After a grueling 5 days I seem to be recovering and now have a nice stash of medications for both symptoms.

I tried using generic allergy medicine that was near its expiration date that didn't do anything. Then my husband picked out something he thought I would like, and it worked, but made me incredibly drowsy. Drowsy mom = lots of movie time.

I should have expected something like this. When you move you get to experience new flora and fauna and sometimes discover that you have allergies. Or remember that you had allergies. It's one of the surprises of moving that hits you when it hits you.

To soothe my discomfort my husband brought home a box set of PBS Masterpiece Classics with Great Expectations, Jane Eyre, Wuthering heights, and Northanger Abbey. I love being sick :-)

  1. I was going to say I hope you feel better soon, but you seem to be enjoying the time relaxing, so I guess ill say enjoy your movie time!!!

    I'm looking forward to school break, hopefully I can get my husband to bring me movies in bed,

    My first Medical Monday

  2. Glad you are feeling better, and now you have a good stash of movies for those rainy days!!!!!!
    Chey xo

  3. I met my 5pm deadline today after 3 nights of only 3-4 hours of sleep per night and 3 months of non-stop research and writing. I'm thinking of calling in sick for remainder of the week. A week of movie marathons sounds heavenly! I hope you're feeling better today! :)

  4. I hope you are feeling better! Although if one must be sick, being sick with masterpiece classics is definitely the way to go ;-)

  5. Feel better soon, but enjoy the movie time. I think I have a similar variety of allergies/head cold. Not fun.

  6. hey, I found this aptitude test to help med students choose a specialty. I thought it would be fun to share with everyone in MM. The spouses can take it and and see where they would fall if they chose medicine as well


Comments are fun, don't be shy. If you are visiting this blog for the first time leave me a note to introduce yourself.
