Wink Bizi's new 2019 thread( a little late)

Since my post went over 500 I thought I would start a new thread.
Now I am getting sick...really scratchy throat, starting to get a cough. Took a zyrtek this morning. So far no sneezing. Every body is suffering with allergies.
I just took some nite quil, I got up early today at 5;30am...just took my night meds. hope I can sleep tonight. Will see what I wake up with in the morning.

Bizi, I hope that your throat and cough get better soon.

Poor Jeff! I know he's already on a lot of meds, but I would get him some Mucinex for his chest congestion ASAP if he's not already on it, or something like it, because he's already really sick, and he doesn't need to get any sicker

I hope that the Zyrtec works and you find that you are/were just suffering from allergies- not catching anything from Jeff. Post nasal drip could account for the scratchy throat and cough. You may want to try regular nasal spray to help with that if you wake up in the morning and feel like the cough is just allergy-related.

I hope you got some sleep and are both feeling much better this morning!

Red face

Still on the verge of being sick.... just a scratchy throat, little cough, thickening of the back of my throat.
Crossing fingers, took a zyrtek and allegra d this morning.
Made a call to a client, will see her at 1;30pm this afternoon after lunch at chris's po boys.
Chicken and sausage gumbo sounds good on my throat.
I broke my fast last night and had a fudge pop at around 9pm.
It felt good on my throat. We watched an episode of LOST last night. Great show!

I have been picking at my face but have been trying to do better. I have 2 small white pimples on my right side of my nose. I am leaving those alone for now. They are sensitive to touch.
My nose is bright red on that side of my nose from weeks of pimples and picking.I also have pimples and scabs on the left side of my face from pimples and picking. this will leave scars no doubt. and is red and lumpy. my poor face. It is a good thing I have this "camophlage" makeup/cover up. It works wonders!

I have been wearing lip stick for a few days now. Jeff said he liked it. And eye liner which gets messy by the end of the day. need to get some vaseline to take it off easily. I like it, some of my clients have complimented so that is nice to hear. I like it too and think it helps me feel less self conscious about my face.

I am only using the benzolperoxide cleaner at night to take off my make up and then wash my face with the seaweed/charcoal soap, then I use the vitamin c serum followed by a light moisturizer. My face seems to be happy with these products. So will keep using them. I get them cheaper on amazon!
Sorry for going on and on about this.
I wish I could quit picking, have been a picker my whole life.
My poor face is covered in scars...you think I would have learned to leave my face alone!
sigh

Oh no! I was hoping you would feel better this morning!

I have been a picker my whole life, too. I've dealt with the redness, extra pimples, and scars from it, too. I had very severe acne from lithium and it left some really bad scars. I still pick tho. It can all make you feel so self-conscious, so I can understand why you want to talk about it

I'm so glad that the new concealer is working out so well for you, and the rest of the products you are using seem to agree with your skin
I buy a lot of things on Amazon. I wear a face moisturizer by Clarins that I can buy almost $20 cheaper there. And that's just 1 product. It all adds up.

I'm glad that you're getting so many compliments because of the makeup you started wearing! I hope that it is boosting your self-esteem

I'm surprised you are seeing a client on a Saturday!

Enjoy your lunch today! Gumbo does sound like something soothing to eat if you are not feeling well

I gave jeff some mucinex to take every 12 hours, just got home from visiting a friend Doris. She is the one I went on a manic trip to hear a blue grass concert then went to hot springs arkansas. a couple of octobers ago.


WE are going to a cook out tonight with some friends of ours.
He is not drinking either, paul jeffs best friend here...gave up alcohol for lent again, does it every year. So he has been helpful, I have called him a couple of times for encouragement....Jeff has been helpful too.

Still alcohol free one more week of abs then we shall see what I do then. I have had a pretty regular weight loss14.1 pounds in 5 weeks. I would say that is pretty good. I still look pregnant. My Intermittant fasting is working and following a lowish carb diet.
Went to a dinner it was all very good and healthy
baked chicken and asparagus and brussel sprouts and cucumbers and we brought a lovely fruit salad that hubby made. with strawberries pineapple, blue berries and raspberries. yummy. snacked on some dark chocolate almond candy and some roasted almonds. Very filling but not stuffed!
Then proceeded to drink 5 sparkling sodas.
I hope I don't have to get up to go pee too many times tonight!
Our friend paul is also abstaining from alcohol for lent. And hubby is taking anti biotics so he was drinking water too. so rob was the only one drinking whisky.
I did not miss it as I was not nervous being around them. So I think I can continue to do this after easter.

It's good that Jeff is taking the Mucinex

It's great that you saw Doris! When is the last time you saw her?

I'm so glad that you have been getting support from Jeff and Paul
And I'm happy that you felt comfortable around the people at the cookout and feel like you can abstain from alcohol after Easter

I drink a lot more non-alcoholic beverages when I'm out and around people who are drinking, or if I want to avoid eating too much. I hope you didn't have to get up too pee last night and got some good sleep...

How are you feeling? Do you think you have, or are getting, a cold?

Thanks kay!
I just took zyrtek and allegra d for my symptoms, have a yucky cough and scratchy throat still have some sniffles, my eyes are watering this morning.
So I am fighting what ever this is.


Jeff is better today. still coughing a bit. I got up and went to the other bed room last night because I felt like I was going to have a coughing fit and went pee. The house was cold so I had to get up and get a blanket to put on top of me. I got a cough drop and that seemed to help ward off a coughing fit. Took another clonipin just .5mg to see if that would help me get back to sleep and it did.


Got up at 8:30. Jeff got up shortly after me.
It is cooler outside.
WE dodged a bullet last night. There were supposed to be heavy rains and storms...but did not. It had been gusty and heavy winds all day yesterday.
Invited melissa and her hubby brian for dinner tonight we have a meat loaf that needs to be eaten along with some pork sausage I was going to mix the two together to make it a 2 pound loaf. Yesterday she said maybe...They were going to go to lake martin to go kayaking and she is an excellent photographer.

She calls that her happy place.
They have been training for a half marathon...so proud of them both!


Visited with my friend Doris for a few hours yesterday so that was great seeing her. Doris went with me 2 octobers ago when we went to north carolina to hear bluegrass. I think I was hypo or manic on that trip, looking back at it.
She is a good friend.
I am drinking plenty of fluids like usual.
Need to hop into the shower...it has been 5 days.
sigh
wish it weren't such an ordeal but it is....


Looking forward to my bacon lettuce egg tomato mayo on rye bread sandwich This morning...love it! It has become my usual choice...took me long enough to finally eat some bread with out freaking out!

This is the only bread that I have for the week though.


lots of love for my friends here,
bizi
