Sick and Tired...

of being sick and tired! I STILL have this awful head/chest cold. I know it's a virus, I know how to treat it (time, fluids, rest), I know antibiotics won't help but part of me just wants to go get something to make me feel better!

I called in sick today. I try not to do that, but with residual ice on the roads from yesterday (the main roads are fine, but secondary ones are said to be icy) and the sneezing and hacking and blowing of the nose every few minutes, I just think that discretion might be the better part of valor today. So I'm snuggling up with a rice cozy and some hot tea and then I'm going back to bed.

Have a great day, everyone!

Terri, I'm so sorry you feel so bad. Hopefully the rest today is what you need to start feeling better.
Thanks for your sweet comments and I will definitely keep everyone posted on test results for Nalley - right now it's just a waiting game. We both appreciate your prayers and friendship so much.
Feel better soon! Mildred

I don't know if you are interested in natural things that help with the cold, but if you are - Sodium Ascorbate will help. (This is Pharmaceutical Grade Vitamin C Powder.)

Take a tiny bit, 1/8 tsp, in water three times a day.

DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN 1/2 tsp a day. Really works for me.

Although, I didn't follow directions once, wanting to fight a sore throat that was really getting me down, so Idecided to take 1/2 tsp three times a day.

I didn't make it to three times, I got sick right away with gas, head ache and throwing up.

So DO NOT DO AS I DID, but as recommended. Just a pinch in a glass of water three times a day. You should be over your cold in three days.

Thanks, everybody, for the kind words!

Mildred - hang in there!

Maddie's mom - thanks!

Susie, I'm trying - this school thing makes it tough!

Heather, I'll check out the posts on your blog, then!

Lynda, do you get this at the drugstore?

Thanks again, everyone!

Terri, I know how you feel. I am still dragging around. Enjoy your day and get some rest!

No you need to go to the health food store. Be sure and get SODIUM ASCORBATE, they might talk you into something else.
