The cold that's kicking my butt

Today I feel more sick than any of the last four days. And I thought the worst was over! What I thought was a head cold has completey skipped my sinuses and promptly settled into my chest where it seems hell bent on staying for awhile. I haven't had a chest cold like this in I don't know when. I still cant tell if it's just a cold or the flu, as I spent most of last night between chills and cold sweats. My chest is so tight it hurts to cough and there is a wheezing/rattling when I try to take a deep breath.
There is also metallic taste in the back of my throat. A hot shower seems to be the only way to loosen up the phlegm, so I've tried that three times already. I may have to send Joe to the store for a decongestant. I'm bummed because we're missing a pretty cool Super Bowl party too. Oh well. At least now Joe can watch the game in peace. He was concerned there were going to be a bunch of kids running around during the party and he wouldn't be able to concentrate on the game. He would have been right, but it's still fun to watch with other people, especially if you aren't that interested in the game(which I am not). I am hoping I feel better by tomorrow, because I can't miss any more work right now. Well, gotta go. The game's on!
