UGH A Cold

               I sadly have now caught a cold which does happen during the winter but I know what really played a big part for me is the lack of sleep from last week. It has been busier than usual at work and with lack of sleep from the Dexcom puts me at risk for catching a cold. I am fighting back with Emergency drink additive which seems to help reduce the duration of the cold for me which is great. I would love to be able to stay home and rest but sadly my work is too busy for me to really take a day off this time of year. Most of my coworkers have already had this cold and I am the last one to get it in my department. I am never a fan of being sick but Duchess is usually up for the challenge and she usually keeps me in pretty tight control. Thankfully this cold has not spread to my lungs which will get me out of the office usually for a day or two. Overall I am a little tired but I am planning on making it through the week like I normally would. I am blessed to have Duchess and the Dexcom because most of the time even when I am sick I don't usually get too high. 

Duchess and her new Bringsel alert she is so fast sometimes it is hard to catch her alerting.


  1. Sorry to hear you're fighting a cold - that's never any fun. Hope you get better soon!

  2. Thanks Scott. I am doing pretty well but just makes the day longer at work.
