Habby dew year!  
I wish there was some specific, unmistakable sign delineating the moment "perpetual sinus weirdness" turns into "full-on head cold".

I wish there was some specific way of telling exactly where and how one acquired the head cold.

I wish there was some way of recognizing that event in sufficient time to avoid it.

I wish I'd had the sense to call in sick as soon as I woke up rather than attempting to go into work and driving almost half a mile before having to pull off, turn around, and call in sick.

I wish I didn't have inescapable meetings over the next two days.

I wish sleeping all day didn't have me awake now, when I have to be at a morning meeting. I wish I could go back to bed without fear that doing so will just make the headache and sinus problems worse.

I wish I could just say, "All right! I get it! I'm sick!" and my head would stop with the stabbing pressure. I wish I didn't have the experience to know that "stabbing pressure" actually makes a sort of sense.

I wish I had more head-soothing drink options or at least liked hot coffee better (though this isn't as critical now that the mono-like sore throat has eased).

I wish I could have any faith that I'm dealing with the worst of it now, rather than only just starting to be miserable.

And while I'm at it ... I might as well I wish I had a few million dollars, too.

Hope you feel better soon! Maybe try some Nyquil?

Somebody has to say it...

If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.


I'm in the same boat, so may we both get well soon!
