sick... dieing...

Okay, so I got this cold and now I am dieing. I was up all last night coughing until my eyeballs hurt,honestly hurt! It was kinda of sad because I have cough medicine and I was sitting here with it but it has one of those damn child proof caps. Apparently they are Sally proof. I tried for an hour straight, even resorting to trying to pry it open with my metal nail file, and needless to say I went to bed coughing and didn't get any relief. I wish I had a camera to see the desperation in my eyes as I reached for the nail file. Well, at least my sickness is more resembling a cold than the flu it felt like the other day. St FX is infected, well, at least everyone I know is that goes here. Nessa didn't even get out of bed all day yesterday. I just thank God that I have my own bathroom on days like those.

So Al, Bruce, Tim, Chris, Nathan and Steve all came down last weekend. It was so much fun! I love having people from home here! In the end 5/6 of them had a story to tell, Al and Tim's involved the drunk tank lol. So I thought that was going to be the last I see of them until about June when I get back from intersession, but Megs, Al and Cory are all coming up this Saturday!! I am SO excited!! Yay for visits from home!!

Back to coughing up my lungs, talk to you all later!

Today I had to watch a movie in healthy aging about sexuality in the older adult. The whole point of us watching the movie was to understand that they have sexual needs as well as we do, and to accept and be comfortable with it, but I still left the class thinking ew... I don't want to see that, know about it or anything! I suppose that is the same with any age group really though, I mean, who really wants to know about someone else's personal, ahem, VERY personal life? Does that make me a bad person in realtion to nursing and older adults? I sure hope not.. because really... eww!! haha sorry, bit of a ramble but I wanted to get it out.
