Subject: BS: I'm sick
From: Raptor
Date: 20 Nov 04 - 08:48 AM

I have the worst head cold I have ever known.

My body is full of gross fluids.

I feel like drilling a hole in my temple to relieve the pressure.

I can't remembre not feeling DIZZY.

I ache all over.

I have no one to whine to.

Ah Raptor. Poor sick old dino. Lots of fluids - warm water with lemon and honey will sooth your throat. Add a tablespoon of brandy before bedtime and you will sleep easier. Make sure you have the tissues with lotion so your nose doesn't get all red and crusty. Make yourself a bed in front of the TV and rest. If the nastiness appears to be settling in your chest, see a doctor. Same if you have fever and chills - all signs of pneumonia. Hot chicken soup, homemade if you have someone to make it. Low salt if it comes from a can. And check in with me periodically so I know you are OK. And whine away. There is nothing worse than a headcold except maybe the flu.

Another vote here for snorting saltwater.... about 1/4 t. to 4-5oz. water warm enough to dissolve salt. It can also be a good preventative if taken early enough. Makes your eyes water and you want to be sure the bathroom door is well closed and loved ones out of earshot. But it really does work. And be good to both yourself, and to the rest of the world, by staying home until past the contagious period, please.

And get better fast.

Secret recipe, works for me...

Juice a lemon into a cup, add grated nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, a few cloves, three tablespoons of honey, and some whisky if you want. Top up with hot water and drink...

The cloves and honey are good for a sore throat, the lemon is full of vitamin c, and the rest just make it taste good. If you put whisky in, it'll help you sleep.

Damn, now it's not secret, is it? Oh well...for the greater good, eh?

My standard remedy - I love it but the kids hate it - is to drop some oil of eucalyptus into a large bowl, pour boiling water over it and then steam your head - draping a towel over your head helps to keep the water from cooling too quickly and keeps the steam right where you want it. Keep lots of tissue handy, as it will loosen everything up considerably! Also good for the complexion. (As long as you don't burn your face off.)

Oh, Raptor, I'm sorry. I know what it's like to feel so lousy and the one who used to put up with the whining isn't here to make it better- or whine back. Even being sick is worse now, isn't it?
My best remedy- the hottest bath you can stand for as long as you can stand it. Immerse yourself up to the earlobes- then quick, get into bed and sweat it off. Hopefully the bath will make you sleepy enough to get some good rest, too.

Hang in there, buddy. You can whine here as much as you need to. Or perhaps your silence since your initial thread is a good sign- keep off the computer and just rest, rest, rest!

Sending warm and healing thoughts...

What SueB said for all of you with horrible head colds: if you can stand to stand for a few minutes, take a hot shower. Standing with the water beating down on your forehead will help your sinuses feel better and the hot steam will break up some of the congestions. A vaporizer in the room is also a big help when you're trying to sleep. The bowl of hot water is a good thing to do between showers.

The zinc lozenges work for me, if I suck on a couple right when I begin to feel the first symptoms.

What is the difference between the flu and a cold?

This cold started with a couple of days of vague dizziness. Then I got a sore throat. That turned into a head cold. Now I think I have a sinus infection and I feel like crap. I'll go to the doctor tomorrow because I know that a sinus infection is very serious. In the meantime, Raptor, I hope you are not as miserable as I am.

I have had a lot of visitors the last few days and I am so sick that I don't even care. I just want them to go home and let me wallow in my own misery and I really don't want to spread this around.

Please, if you are a parent of a small child; do not send them to school when they are ill. Teachers are not nurses.

Ginger tea is the remedy in our house. for one cup: healthy knob of ginger, shredded. Dump into boiling water, and steep for about 5 minutes, then strain. add about 1 tablespoon of honey, and a healthy pinch of cayenne pepper. I know, sounds ghastly, but actually tastes fabulous, and really helps the throat and congestion. Will make you feel semi human for about an hour.

I'm sick too! But it's only a cold this time, first one I've had in years. I like to treat myself to a hot lemonade with Bourbon. Since Bardstown is the Bourbon capital of the world, we have a cabinet full of samples. Then I eat cherry cough drops like candy. There was also a nice nap today.

Two weeks ago I had a...what I call a virus...and Hubby laughs at my terminology because I always use that term for fever/chills/intestinal woes. This stupid thing lasted with fever for three days, so it must not have been the flu. But my problem the last few years has been fluid on my ears which causes vertigo. If you've never had it, it's like severe sea sickness. Antihistamines didn't help much this time. I live near the allergy capital of the world (Louisville, KY for spring allergies), and I suspect it's high on the list for fall allergies. I've been lucky all my life to not have the allergy problems that nearly half my friends have.

Echinacea with zinc will ward off a cold bug, and will help your body fight a full-fledged cold. It works for me every time. I haven't had a cold in years, since I first heard of and took echiacea with zinc. When I feel a sniffle or a cough developing, I take it and it never comes to anything. Hope you're feeling better.
