Default We had such a beautiful cruise and now I am sick as a dog!

We had such a beautiful crusie, went to western carribean on Liberty Dec 5-12th. Wonderful weather everyday. Kids had fun and so did we, we left Ft Lauderdale sunday with 70ish weather and flew home to 27 degrees Michigan snow! I had the following day off to try and recoup before returning to work and started coughing! No biggie right! Wrong, went to dr on friday after spiking a temp and hacking a lung. Bronchitis, take the antibiotic and Musinex-dm as perscribed. Sat end up in er having an out of body experince like I was higher than a kite! Dr said it was from the musinex!

Why I had a wonderful trip!!! Let me say I DO NOT feel like this was from the cruise, because I am the only one sick! I think it just sucks we had such a wonderful time to come home to this!!

I think its a cue for me to move somewhere warm!!!

At least you had a cruise. I'm just sick as a dog as it is, having not just returned from a cruise.

I'm sorry to hear you're sick . I used to come home feeling fine and then get sick two or three days later. I think the stress (even if we call it fun) of the cruise probably lowers our immunity and we get whatever's going around.

Did you enjoy your "out of body" experience ?

Take care of yourself and move south when you can!

Sorry to hear you are sick. I hate being sick. I came home from our cruise in 2007 sick. I could tell I was getting sick before I ever made it home. Whether I picked it up on the ship or in port or at Sea World I'll never know. This last cruise (in November) I started taking Airborne tablets dissolved in water a few days before we left home, and continued to take them for about the first 5 days of our cruise. We washed our hands a lot and used the hand sanitzer a lot. I did not come home sick this time. Whether it was the Airborne, the washing hand or what I don't know, maybe a combination of all of it. Hope you get well soon.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I had thought about the airborne as well before. I actually had the kids taking vitamins before we elft. Living in MI the weather is usually cold in Dec. I should have taken something for myself as well. I agree maybe I should just stay on a crusie and move south!!!
