    This cold is dragging along

    for both me and my little boy. He woke up with an ear ache today, think it's time to go to the doctor for a checkup.

    It's really bugging me.

    Sore throat, sneezing, runny nose; I definitely have the full package.

    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...

    Second Time

    I hate getting sick, it is the worst feeling. My complexion changes and my voice changes. I end up with so many tissues all around me. The last time I was sick was at the end of November, at least this time I don't feel as bad. I currently have a sore throat, stuffy nose, and bad...

    Summer Cold??

    It's the middle of summer and I have a rotten cold. Sneezing, coughing, sore throat and all the aches and pains  associated. I'm not the only one either. While I was getting some pills at the pharmacy to ease the symptoms, several other people also purchase similar items. What...

    I'm dying and there is no one to whine to

    *coughing violently* and *coughs some more* so I did what any person on earth would do and whined to the thousands of people on EP. I'm amazed at how clear my mind is with all the cough/cold medicine shooting around in my body. The medicine says don't operate heavy vehicles...

    Time For More Niquil

    I'm just going to sleep through the weekend. Nothing is going right, I'm dog sick, and it's easiest simply to knock myself out and curl up on the couch. I feel wretchedly sorry for myself and wish there was someone to take care of me and the house. Unfortunately, I'm the...
