Poorly blogger!

I have come down with the MOTHER of all snotty beaks. Not as bad as Dad has been, as my head isn't pounding. I am a walking wheeling lump of snot, a slug on wheels, so to speak. Do I feel sorry for myself? YES! I haven't had a cold for 20 years, and now I cop for a beauty.
What else is life going to throw at me? Not another f*cking tree, I hope!!

I shall survive. (there's a song there somewhere).

Ta, ta.

Hey poor John but I guess it had to be the full works as it's been 20 years since your last cold!

Hope you're feeling better soon.

and I thought I had it bad by getting a cold my last week at work and it had been about 4years since my last one.

I say fuck off to any of them falling trees...you've had yer share of them.

*chucks a box of tissues at ya*

Don't eat 'cloggy' things like milk, yoghourt, cheese which are mucous forming. Aromatic things like lemon and ginger - anything that percolates up your nose and clears your tubes is good - inhalation cet, cet. And PULEEZE don't sneeze this way. Get better soon.

Right, you need, Sudafed non drowsy,a good nasal spray(clears the nose for 10hours at a time)and a hot toddy. I'm an expert believe me, spent the last 3 years choked up till I discovered I never had a constant cold but a food allergy!

Thanks Beccy, it's easing a little. x

Pessimist, the tissues are a must at the rate i'm going through them!

Thanks Pat, does lager work?

Phoenix, ta, but i'm not allergic to anything.........apart from colds!

phoenix said...

Hehe me too hate them.Although being a man are you sure it's not the flu?:-)
those things'll treat the lovely snotty symptoms, the allergy thing was a whole other ball game!apparently I'm a medical conundrum,Lancet here I come.

Phoenix, it's not the flu, I had that once. Not nice. It's just a snotty beak, it came on its own, it'll go on its own.

drink tea with a little fresh, grated ginger, fresh lemon juice, honey and at night add whiskey (not much - you'll wheel yourself into a door!)

Take some Echicacea. I haven't had a full blown cold since I starting taking it on and off years ago!

Sally Lomax said...

That should read Echinacea!!! Sorry!
