Everyone has the same cold here...

Right now I have the sore throat, fuzzy head, runny nose, and mild cough. Am still going to work every day and looking forward to my Christmas vacation. <- generally catching up on sleep helps get over these things quickly.

I had pneumonia one year just before Christmas. Nothing baked, no cards sent out. My Kids were young and the whole thing was a blur.

A few years back DH and I were camping at Banff. The day before we were to leave, I woke up, tried to sit up, and realized I had vertigo so bad I couldn't even move my head when lying flat on my back.
I went to a Dr in Banff and he gave me Gravol. Amazing!!! I have had vertigo in the USA several times and nothing works as well as Gravol did (and I have never had as bad an episode of vertigo as I did that time).
Is Gravol an OTC or a Rx medicine?

Gravol here is OTC. The ingredient is dimenhydrinate. I buy the cheaper version rather then spend the money on a name brand

So, I went to the clinic. I have strep throat. I looked into my throat and saw a bunch of blisters and white patches so thats what prompted me to go. Now I am on amoxicillin for 7 days.

I hadn't thought about this, in a very long time, until I saw this thread. Twenty years ago, when I was a teenager, I was diagnosed with leukemia, on the 2nd day of school in September and still in the hospital, undergoing chemotherapy that Christmas. My parents had chosen to have me treated in the US instead of Canada, so I was alone a lot of the time. And to top it all off, 3 days before Christmas, I was diagnosed with candidemia, a fungal infection of the blood. When the doctors pre-treat you with morphine and benadryl before they administer the anti-fungal drugs, you know you are in for a rough ride. Children's hospitals usually try to send as many of their patients home for Christmas, even if only for the day, but that year I was too sick. Needless to say, I really don't remember much about Christmas that year, and it is probably a good thing I don't.

I spent Christmas in the hospital many years ago.
I passed out at my house, so my husband took me to the ER on the 23rd. They suspected appendicitis, so I was admitted. They did exploratory surgery on the 24th.
The worst part was waking up in the middle of the night, after surgery, with no family around. The nurses weren't allowed to tell me what they found, so my imagination took off based on all of the monitoring equipment/IV/other tubes attached to me.
On Christmas, they told me I would never be able to have children.
Worst. Christmas. Ever.

Followup - I was able to have three children, all healthy. Don't tell I can't do something, because I will prove you wrong.

Your story sounds similar to mine except I was in my 20's. Diagnosed with leukemia in September and just finishing chemo at Christmas. Due to a bed shortage I was an outpatient though, but still hours away from home. I remember being upset that I wasn't going to be home for Christmas and my doctor telling me he didn't care about that Christmas, he cared about all the future Christmases. He was right -- that was 11 years ago!

While I've never forgotten how sick and scared I was that Christmas, I'm getting a cold right now too and can relate to what others are saying to not be quite up to par this time of year... so much to do!
