    Default Is Anyone else Sick?

    Or is it just me? I came down with a cold in the last 48 hours, and it is making sleep near impossible without Codral.

    Gotta love winter. Off to bed with me, the dogs wore me out today...

    Just getting over it. Hits like a tidal wave, and takes as long as a tsunami to go away.

    Spent 2 days in bed, and I'm counting day 10 today; just got the backed up sinuses now and general lethargy. THis current cold germy is a right turd.

    Hadn't been sick in years - this was a real eye opener... even the tried and true apple cider vinegar didn't really do much, surprisingly - normally that stuff kicks everything in the teeth.

    I found Nurofen Plus to be the most helpful for sleep - I'd take 2 to go to bed (with some Zero for added health benefits (!!) - but apparently the caffeine gets it into your blood stream faster, so who am I to argue?)

    Oh, and be prepared for "snot bottom" to kick in around day 2...

    Have a cold here too. Hope my immunity is up and can deal with it. Only finished radiation 2 weeks ago.

    Not yet but have customers coughing all over the place - doesn't anyone cover their mouth any more?? And use your elbows people, not your hands! Just a matter of time.

    Di, if anyone coughs on you you have my permission to smack 'em in the nose.

    Just got a snotty sneeze from one of the dogs, Meegs, does that count?

    I am supposed to go to a lunch over in Wagga on Sunday for an over 80 year old relative. She is being let out of the hospital for the occasion after an above knee amputation. Sighhh, would love to go but will not risk passing this on to her.

    Have finally kicked it, but I was sick for 8 weeks solid, that included no voice, head aches, coughing my guts out continually & feeling like I had been hit by a Mac truck. I went through all the chemist colds & flu tabs, cough mixture, packet after packet of Lemsip & the Pandol one as well. Eventually I found 3 Paracetamol tablets dissolved in hot water, big spoon full of honey, juice of 2 lemons (I sat under my lemon tree waiting for them to ripen), topped with hot hot water was the best.
