    Here We Go Again

    I haven't had a proper cold for two or three years.  Don't know how I've managed to avoid them but I'm not complaining. Today will be the first for a while.  Nothing too bad as yet, just achy throat.  Hopefully I can nip it in the bud tonight/tomorrow.Looks like an early...

    I have a cold. Just the common cold. Nasopharyngitis brought on by the nasty little bugger, rhinovirus. Symptoms should last about 7 - 10 days. So, from my use of the ten-dollar words above, you can tell that I've researched the subject. Why? Because I'm sick and I have nothing...

    The Worse Cold Ever.

    I came down with the worst cold ever the other day. My nose is cherry red and overflowing. I have the sneezes and I can't get the tickle to go away. I'm miserable. To make matters worse, I accidently spread a dust and pollen mixture all over my house so the sneezing is giving me...
