I just can't catch a break! (TMI)

Please excuse me, for I am about to get very whiny.

Last week I had the stomach flu and was always either nauseous, vomiting or having diarrhea. Nothing helped aside from sleeping- I even went to the local Urgent Care clinic to make sure. My stomach flu began Wednesday evening and ended Monday morning. I had my mom care for Adrian while I spent most of my time trying to rest.

This past Tuesday, I caught a cold! I'm sneezing like crazy, my eyes are watering, my nose is running, and I have an awfully sore throat. I've tried Advil, Benadryl, DayQuil geltabs, NyQuil geltabs, and sleep. Nothing is making me get better! I've tried taking Vitamin C tablets, putting Mentholatum on my feet, eating popsicles or Werther's hard candy or Halls drops and it's all barely helping. I'm not letting this cold keep me in bed, but I'm not doing normal activities, either to decrease chances of spreading our virus. Adrian has a cough and a runny nose as well.

Next week won't be much better, if it is at all. Why? Because I'm due to start my period on Monday.

AHHHHH!!! Why me? Why does my body hate me so much? Why can't I just be healthy! Why?!?! *insert more whining and "woe is me" behavior here* ...Sorry, just had to vent. Anything you want to whine about? Let it all out in a reply here. I won't judge ya. (=

P.S. Sorry for any misspellings! My Nintendo DSi XL doesn't have spell check.

I don't take vitamins. I haven't found one I can take yet. I'm sensitive to bad tastes and cannot take any medicarion with a bad flavor because I will vomit trying to swallow it.
