I came down with it yesterday and toughed it out at work last night. I had to call off tonight but can't go to bed because I'll keep the wife awake all night hacking, wheezing, coughing, sniffling and blowing my nose. Looks like a night on the couch for me. It's hard to imagine the human body producing so much green and yellow phlem. Just thought I'd share.

Gonna see the saw bones tomorrow.

Sleep cures everything, well, almost everything.

Here's my Rx... take a hot shower. I always feel better when I'm clean, and the steam will open up your airway. Then, take a shot of nyquil. You'll be out like a light. When you wake up, I bet you'll feel a crapload better. But, sleep as long as you can. If you get up, don't think you have to get up, go back to sleep. If need be, take another cup of nyquil.

Everybody probably already knows this, but what the hell right. I've discovered I can't kick a cold if I try to gut it out.

Same here. Mine started Tuesday morning. I couldnt even keep water down. Wednesday evening I finally got hot tea to stay down. All i could think was "I'm sooo thirsty...."
Thursday it went to a sinus cold, and hasnt let up. It finally quit running Saturday. Yesterday it felt like someone poured concrete in my sinuses.
Its been easin up a bit today. A bit.

I've had 4 smokes in 2 days. Down from my normal pack n a half a day.
While my lungs thank me, I'm fuckin on edge. This quittin smokin shit is for the birds.

It's making the rounds here too. My daughter started showing symptoms today.

I had a cold last week, I took 50mg of Zinc and 500mg of VitaminC daily and took nyquil at night to sleep, I got over this cold quicker than any other.

My daughter came home from school, the third day of the school year, sick. Three days later my wife gets it. Four days later I have it. Daughter went to school this morning at 7:30, got the call at 9:00 to come pick her up, vomiting.

Home schooling is starting to sound possible.

There's been a raven hanging around outside my house and I'm having visions of an old black woman. I think it's the super flu.

are you too mean to duck?

I'd rather have a bitch of a cold that will eventually go away than a cold bitch who never will.

Sure it isn't allergies? Ragweed pollen is at its peak right now in the midwest.

I think I had the same cold. I was sure I had been hit with anthrax. The cold isn't gone yet but lots of sleep seems to help the most. Take an overnight medicine if the nighttime coughing is too bad.
