Wednesday afternoon I noticed a ‘tickle’ in my throat. On the drive home I deduced that I was coming down with a cold. Wednesday I definitely had one. The ol’ snot locker was draining, and I was coughing up phlegm. Fortunately it was a telecommuting day. Thursday was the same, and I decided to work from home again. I advised my boss Thursday afternoon that I was sick, and she told me not to come into the office Friday. (Her granddaughter is coming out for Christmas, and she didn’t want to become infected.) So I telecommuted Friday too. Not only was my nose running and was I coughing, but I wasn’t feeling 100% either. I’m feeling better today, though I did have to take some Dayquil earlier, and I’m snorting nasal spray three or four times a day. I’m thinking I’m just past half-way through the infection.
How long do colds last for you?
