All this pain behind my right knee is driving me crazy!!
On top of that I feel like crap cuz someone passed their cooties to me...being sick raises my blood sugar and exacerbates my asthma. This friggin sucks!!

No sleep, pain and sick by themselves are bad enough but when they combine forces its pure hell! I have been having a lot of problems with the back of my left knee so I feel your pain.. it has kept me up many nights. I hope you feel better soon and can get some rest! ××

VonnieB, I'm sorry you're hurting and sick at the same time. I have asthma too, and I hate it when others come around sick. I've always caught stuff easily and stayed sick longer than the rest of my family. Now that we're adults I tell them to stay away if they are sick.

If you're coughing, my granny used to mix whiskey, water, lemon juice, & honey (equal parts on honey & lemon juice, 1/2 amt of whiskey & 1/4 amt of water) in a pot on the stove. She's give us 1 tablespoon and it worked to calm the cough and help us rest. Sending hugs & praying you'll be better soon! 🙏🌼

I stayed up for 23 hours the other day! I know what you mean. I was getting stressed because I couldn't sleep from the pain

Whisky! 😉 No sleep, pain, and being sick is not fun. There will be a "better" day soon. Hang in there
