    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...

    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...

    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...

    Yesterday, I woke up

    and my jaw really hurt. I was able to open my mouth, but it hurt at first. It still hurts today, but not as much now. I've never experienced this with a cold before. I can't think of anything to fix it. It also sucks that I can't take any daytime cold medicine because it mixes...

    bronchitis. Still tried to sing in my church choir today. I didn't do bad at all.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I sound really weird.

    I can only whisper. This sucks, and my brother keeps making me laugh, which makes me sound like a squealing pig.
