So, tonight my hash running group plans on getting all gussied up and going downtown to hang out and have a fun night on the town! I haven't gotten dressed up in an actual nice dress in at least a year (and that was with my dad at a work Christmas party!) Then, tomorrow night, I've already paid to go on the big annual anny hash campout trip which is supposed to be a freakin blast!!!

And, now I have a damn virus! coughing up green and yellow crud. What do I do?? I've pre-paid for this trip and I don't want to miss it! I can't get a refund and I've been looking forward to it for a while now. It was supposed to be my 1st overnight without my daughter EVER (she is 13 and a half months old).

I'm so upset right now. I'm praying for a miracle. I really want to get all dressed up and go out and I want to enjoy tomorrow.... why does this shit always happen to me! I deserve to have some fun damn it!!!

Okay...pity party over.

well, I would strongly suggest skipping it, The trip sounds amazing, but you're not feeling 100% and your running friends wouldn't appreciate being exposed to the creeping crud. , Stay home, rest and when you start feeling better, start helping the group plan another overnight/fun trip

If you think its the flu, get to the doctor for some of that stuff that they can give you to shorten the flu.


Echinacea with Golden Seal - take 2, 3 times a day for 3 days.

Drink LOTS of water, i mean lots...There's alot to be said for flushing the little virus bastards out of the body. Also OJ for the Vitamin C.

Play hooky from work and rest, take naps, and just let your body fight.

Never under estimate the power of Chicken Noodle Soup and Hottie Totties...

Also...I wish I was hashing with you!!

They only do this Anny hash once a year....and I've never been able to go until now. Last year my daughter was 5 weeks old and I couldln't go.....and now this.... I don't want to miss it. This sucks. I'm a single mom and the opportunity for me to even be able to do anything overnight is rare. She doesn't have grandparents in her life.

Go to an acupuncturist and get a treatment and herbs. Then decide last minute. Don't go if you are contagious. Find a way to do a staycation and get yourself some well deserved rest.

Are you feeling cruddy? If so it might be best to skip tonight and rest up. If you're not feeling terrible, just have a nasty cough, maybe dose yourself down with some Mucinex and Airborne (or E-mergency). I have been know to do Airborne bombs (an Airborne or two in a beer) if I feel like I'm coming down with something but plan on drinking. I'm classy like that.
