It's 3 AM, I must be lonely...

On my bottle of Imuran, there's a label warning against being near people with infectious diseases, as my risk of catching those diseases increases.

Hmm. I guess I can't avoid it as well as I used to, as now I'm working with 123 7th graders in a confined space.

Needless to say, I've caught some sort of disease. I don't think it's serious (I hope it's not pneumonia!), but it IS certainly inconvenient. And for some reason, most of the ailments I catch seem to settle in my chest... and when that happens, a terrible cough develops, and I can't get any sleep, so my body can't rest to get better, and it just keeps going and going and going.

It's 3 AM, and I'm wide awake. I don't want to lie in bed, as I'll keep James up, so I'm here, talking to you all. Thanks for keeping me company. I guess I'm fortunate that I still have some super cough syrup left over from the spring, when I got my last Totally Rediculous Cough. Hycodan, I suppose, is my DOC. Only wusses get dependent on cough syrup. I'm SO Little League.

Oh! In other news, I bought Paul's camera. Joy! Pictures again! But I don't want to send a picture of me coughing or anything, nor of me at 3 AM.

Oh, and Skye? Just a few minutes ago, I was in the bathroom on the toilet nonetheless, and I looked up and there was a spider on the ceiling! I'm not afraid of most spiders, as I used to have a tarantula and it's just rediculous for me to be afraid of them anymore, but this one was so so so icky. FYI.

I also have an eye twitch. I've had it for five days now. It's slight enough that people don't notice (last night's Seinfeld episode: George's eye tick gets him in trouble), but bothersome enough that it, well, bothers me.

Well (hmph), I suppose I ought to try to sleep again. I think Super Cough has kicked in. Yay for Super Cough!

From one teacher to another, may I fully endorse the amazing secretive, healing powers of "Airborne." In my opinion, it tastes less-than-fabulous, but I have yet to get sick when I have some at first symptom. Hope you're feeling better!!

Thank you! And thanks for visiting my blog! You never know who's listening...
As far as Airborne goes, many of my professors have suggested it and swear by its greatness. I do use it, but sometimes with my poor, weakened immune system, the nasties get through. Ick to the nasties! Ick! But you know what I do with it? Dissolve it, or crush it up, and add it to a smoothie. Yum! Emergen-C is also perfect to sprinkle in an orange smoothie. Oh, how I love my blender.
