My sister's house is making me sick

Whenever my sister has a party lately, I come home sick as a dog.

During the annual Christmas party, in the middle, I suddenly started coughing, and had a really bad sore throat. Next thing I know, I have a full on bout of laryngitis two days later.

Friday night, she hosted a party to celebrate the end of working for that b***h at Firefly. I was just sitting there, and I noticed I was getting a sore throat.

Yesterday was busy. She came down and we decided to go to Ikea to buy me some more bookshelves. So we went up there and came back with a beautiful set of shelves, opened the box, and the bottom of the shelf was all smashed to pieces. It was 4:30 and we were supposed to go up to Nancy's for Mardi Gras.

Well, I was starting to feel kind of stuffy, and we knew we couldn't fit all 3 of us in the car with these shelves that took up the whole back seat, so the plan was to go back to Ikea and then go home, get Michael, and go to Rockville.

By the time we got home, I couldn't stand it any more--the pain in my throat was so bad. And I was starting to get sinus congestion.

So we went to the store, I got some NyQuil and Vicks and Cepacol, and spent the whole night tossing and turning.

I've just woken up with a fever, I'm completely stuffy, and my throat is KILLING me. Judy said she'd make me some chicken soup today and I'm hoping that will help. Otherwise, I'm just going to lay on the couch and watch TV all day and be a bum. I am about sweating to death and I feel like crap. I HATE being sick. I was sick all of November and December, and now February dawns with another freakin' cold. AUGH!

And it's all Judy's house's fault.

Methinks Judy may need to have her house checked for possible allergens -- dust mites, molds, etc. You just never know! And hey, it couldn't hurt.

HEPA Filters Are My Friend

(Hope you feel better soon!)

I agree, with a big but..(and no I don't meany MY big butt) I notice an increase in my allergies when I'm at Judy's too (no offense Judy)...but I blame the bunnies - not for sure that I'm allergic to them but I'm highly allergic to cats and dogs prob aren't allergic to the bunnies since you have one - except that Tom Tom is contained at your house possibly cutting down the dander factor...but...and this is a big but....if it was allergies causing your problem then you wouldn't have a fever. Sudden onset of upper resp. symptoms yes, but they should go away when you leave the area not get worse. I hope you feel better! If you are sick then there will be NO chance that you are out in the ice storm on Tues and Wed - so maybe it's really someone looking out for ya!
