Stop the room, I want to get off ...

I've been nursing a slight cold for a few days, and it decided to get a bit worse today, during music - one second I'm singing, next second I'm coughing up a lung. By the time I got home I had a headache and a tight throat as well, so I thought I'd take a couple of cold & flu tablets (paracetamol, codeine and pseudoephedrine, basically) to knock it on the head.

Ironically, that knocked ME on the head. Half an hour after I took the tablets the room went kind of odd and the bits of the room in my peripheral vision started spinning if I moved too quickly. YUCK.

I've managed to make dinner - without burning anything - but I feel woozy in the head and generally off-colour. And the dizziness has transformed the righteous ire I felt when I got home (MORE parent-generated crap at school today) into a tired depressed funk. I'm sick of dealing with political crap and just want to get on with teaching.



I cant take cofral because of the codine it makes me throw up when im really il with the flu. I only take the nufeon cold n flu but you alwys seem to be ill you shouls really look at taking echinasia (dunno how its spelt!) You should only take it for part of the year but its really amazing, it will reduce the number of colds/flus and their 'badness'!!!!!! You can get it from the health food shop. I always get sick and i used them one year and it was amazing, i havent used them for a bit but am back on them this year because health wise i just cant afford to get sicker! A
