Blah. I'm going to bitch now.
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 07:41 PM by haruka3_2000
I haven't felt this crappy in a couple years. I'm taking all sorts of immune system stuff, which normally knocks a cold right out of me, but I keep feeling crappier. My throat hates me, I'm really achey all over, my nose is stuffed, and I have a fever.

I'm wearing flannel pajama pants, toe socks, long john shirt, t-shirt and a hoodie sweatshirt. I'm under two blankets and a comforter and I'm still freezing.

This totally blows. I hate this.

ARGHGHHHHHH!!!!!

1. That sucks, haruka.
:hug: I hope you feel better soon. :) There have been some nasty bugs going around this year, and I don't think we've seen the worst of it yet. :(

I woke up this morning with a sinus thing going on, and I'm hoping it doesn't turn nasty. I've felt kind of weird this afternoon, but so far, I'm not feeling worse.

3. Thanks.
:hug:

I think I can pin down exactly where I caught it. A sick toddler sneezed on my arm last Sunday. The little bastard. I'm never having kids.

I hope your sinus thing doesn't get any worse.

27. Yeah, kids seem to be germ carriers all the time.
:yoiks: My sister's two daughters (8 and 6) bring home every imaginable illness from school, and my sister and her husband get whatever they bring. :( Makes me glad my kids are canine. :rofl:

I've been toking sinus meds all day, so I'm keeping it under control for the moment. :D

4. Don't fuck around with this....
If you are feeling this bad, are congested and have a fever and it doesn't go away, see a doctor...

It could very well be a mild pnemonia...

23. I was stoked we kicked Dallas' ass!
Edited on Sat Oct-28-06 08:09 PM by bigwillq
:bounce:

My mom is a big Dallas fan so the next day I called her at work.

She answered and I said "Hello, is (mom) there?"

She said: "This is".

I said: "Hello, this is Eli Manning and we kicked your Dallas ass"!

:rofl:

6. Hve You Tried Hot Whiskey?
Seriously, my dad used to give it to me and my brother when we were kids. Don't know if it really worked, but it did put us to sleep so he could fuck his trophy wife without being interrupted. Oh wait.........we weren't really sick. OK, gotta go now and call my therapist.......

It helped my throat. The rest of me still feels crappy.

9. Go back to bed, haruka.
This crud is best fought with as much rest as you can manage. Take a nap or just lie down for 20 minutes.

I've got a similar crud, throaty, aches,stuffed head, fever. No toddlers have sneezed on me but if I find the person who exposed me to this--Grr.

There's no tea and sympathy smiley so this will have to do :donut:

Watching tv with the laptop.

I wonder how my cousin will feel if I kill her child. This is justifiable homicide, right?

24. I'm sure it feels like it at the moment!
Seriously, I 'm off for another nap. No PC, no reading, just rest. I don't have any medicinal 'spirits' to rely on like you do.

14. Have you tried this?
1 lemon
1 bottle of bourbon
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of sugar
1/2 cup of hot water

Mix all ingredients and drink until it feels better, and it will. If you are a nondrinker, you should know that this is a "medicinal cold remedy" my granny used to make for me when I was a kid. It's not considered drinking. It's a "medicinal cold remedy."

Hell, I might just make some for the hell of it now that I see the ingredients again and rememberd the fond memories of watching Grizzly Addams at her house when I had a cold and she was "treating" it.

17. A whole bottle of bourbon? I drink A LOT but that seems a bit excessive.
Yes, I had two of those earlier. I'll probably have another one soon. They do help my throat.

26. Well, if you drink the whole bottle, you won't care any more
if you feel bad. }(

I was talking about the small bottles. You can drink as much as you need. Get well soon. :hug:

15. Sounds like the crap I just had
The impossibly sore throat; delirious fevers, puffed up sinuses. Oh joy. :eyes:

There wasn't anything I could do about it example enjoy the TheraFlu. :P

Hope you feel better soon, Haruka. :hug:

33. Here's Doctor Redstone's prescription:
Fill a water glass halfway full with orange juice.

Fill the other half with Jack Daniel's, or equivalent.

Drink.

The OJ will provide you with vitamins, and the JD will make you sleep.

And sleep is the ultimate medicine.

Repeat as necessary.

36. Feel better...You know what helps sometimes?
Johnson and Johnson makes this menthol baby bath that I buy for BabyG. WHen I am sick and bone achingly feverish, I make the shower as hot as I can stand it and lather up.

I hope you are soon feeling better. Warming hugs. :hug: :hug: :hug:

38. I slept for a couple hours and I'm feeling a little better now.
Currently, I'm drinking a hot toddy (mug is about half Jack Daniels) and then I plan to go back to sleep.

My sister had the same thing you did and she's on her second course of antibiotics to clear the damn thing up.

45. Basically, unless it's life-threatening, I don't take antibiotics.
I really doubt this is bacterial. Colds & flus are viral.
