CollyMP's Journal, 04 February 2014


I feel awful. Again. Screaming sore throat, almost impossible to swallow, sneezing, coughing, ears's starting up all over again!


I have new windows getting installed tomorrow and Thursday, I've got a tile guy coming to give me a quote in there somewhere...and there's a blizzard coming. I can sure pick a time to develop an incurable illness, can't I?!

sigh...gotta go take down curtains and move furniture. Taking it easy is clearly not helping me get better, maybe hard work until I drop will do the trick.

I'm sorry you are still so sick. Is there anything else going on? Do you have time or access to a doc? Or will you just keep on keeping on? I so feel for you hun, being sick, so often, sucks.

I hear you! We are in the process of moving and just had the flu tear through our home! It's never a good time to get sick. Try those sinus rinses - like a Neti-pot - they are weird but folks who use them swear by their effectiveness. I used one twice last week and was surprised how it curbed to post nasal drip!! HTH!

My* post nasal drip ... Doggone touch screens

Izzy-yes, I need to make another call to the doc and get another appointment to at least get my meds renewed. It's been one darn thing after another this year, being sick, being injured, being out of sync-I have had absolutely enough of this year. Ennaejay, I've had great success with saline nasal spray, which I've used before, and saline gel, which is new to me-really moves things along and prevents SO much chapping, chafing, and the associated nosebleeds. Still have the drip occasionally, but it's not that weird itchy peeling feeling in the back of your throat.

Don't do any hard work while you're ill! That will invariably make you worse ;). You have to rest as much as possible, drink plenty of water, stay warm and eat well (don't cut on calories). There are over-the-counter drugs to fight flu symptoms if you feel really bad. :) In case you develop a dangerously high fever, you should do whatever is necessary to keep your head cool (using cold compresses etc.)
