    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...

    Second Time

    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...

    Snot

    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...

    I think it's easier to warm up when it's cold than it is to cool down when it's hot but I still hate the cold. It's especially horrible in the cold wind and rain.
