As you know, I thought I was going to freeze to death. Okay, so I was not going to freeze to death. However, the discomfort robbed me of sleep and caused frustration and lessened my powers of concentration.
Since before the cold snap, I have daily asked exbf if he still has my box of blankets. I put things that are seasonal in boxes, labeling them and send them home for him to store for me. That way, I have less clutter. By specifically labeling boxes, he does not have to guess which box is which. Several times I have asked, he has said (No." ) he only has one box, the one in his car. "NO, it is not blankets."
When he was here on Tuesday, I looked at the box--"Old blankets." urge to kill Yes, I really fussed at him. I had described to him for days how cold and miserable I was. ??? He knew how ill I was when he called and I could barely speak.
Michele did give me a heavy bedspread, green, king-size, matelassé . But, I cannot lift or carry it to take to the laundry. I do need to get someone to pick it up for me. I am quite sure it is very warm.
For about three weeks, I have been on a course to the doctor's office. It has been so strange. Every morning I have a symptom that goes away during the early morning or at least before night or the next morning--ear ache, sore throat, stuffy head. Of course, there is left and right ear, same with sides of throat. Then, another symptom arises. This has gone on for weeks, never ill enough or with many symptoms at once.Sinus pain was all over the place as the days progressed. Some days, I felt absolutely fine. Some days, I coughed until I hurt. Other days, I slept well and warm and then had to nap for 6 hours.
Finally, last night my temperature went to 98 F degrees. I give up. (temperature is usually 97 or 97.2 and one day it was 96.5) Doctors have assured me for years that I was not ill because my temperature was not even up to "normal!"
Have you ever been so frustrated after asking the same question every day and getting the wrong answer? Tell me about it so I won't feel so alone. How long do you wait until you give up about a cold that comes and goes? Do you run a low normal temperature?
