Ughhh, I think I feel the early stages of a cold coming on. My throat is somewhat sore and my head feels… I don’t know. It’s not quite a headache, but I’m not sure. It’s hard to explain, but you know how you can just FEEL the cold coming on? You just know it’s trying to break through and now you have to stop it from doing so. I hope I am not coming down with a cold, but it’s very possible since several family members have already dealt with it. I am only writing three days next week due to Thanksgiving, and I would hate to have to take a day off to try to get rid of it. I would take the day off if need be, but I don’t really want to, especially after the crummy writing week I had last week. We have something to help with nipping the cold in the bud. I cannot remember what it is called; I need to get it from my sister. I was waiting for a bit because I wanted to see how I felt later, but I may just take it soon after all. Right now I just wanna finish WWE Smackdown, finish my work and go to bed. I hope you’re all feeling okay. I’ll try to be back later for the Gratitude Challenge. See ya. Photo Credit: Pixabay.

Awe thank you! I'm definitely doing a lot better! I keep sneezing today, but I don't think it's a cold; something must have been irritating me is all. I hope you're doing well too. :)

@tammys85 we are doing fine and sage-ing your house can lift the irritants out of the air, cleansing your atmosphere -- glad to hear you are better though

I'm glad you're feeling well. I'm feeling better as well. Neither of us need to get sick, so this cold needs to just go.

I thought I was coming down with a cold (sore throat, slight headache, just hurting all over like maybe with the flu. But I've decided that it's a flareup of my Fibromyalgia. Take care of yourself and try to rest.

@1creekgirl That is a problem with fibromyalgia - cold symptoms are common fibro symptoms like constant sore throat. I never know whether I'm really getting a cold or not but when I get stuffed up, watery eyes, sneezing, I take echinacea tea with a lemon wedge and it all clears right up. I don't want to take the chance of it maybe being fibromyalgia or maybe being a cold.

@patgalca You're right, sometimes it's hard to tell the difference.

@tammys85 I was in full-fledged cold mode one day last week. So I made myself an echinacea tea with a wedge of lemon and within a couple of hours all cold symptoms were gone. It works for me every time, and because I have fibromyalgia I have a low immune system and am subject to get sick easily but that tea works like a charm, along with the pills.

I am glad the tea got rid of the symptoms. I don't feel as bad as I did last night, so maybe I just needed to sleep it off.

Uh oh, that does sound like the onset of a cold. Try to drink more fluids and pump on vitamin c - better if you can get them from fruits and vegetables. I will usually start on my teas, juices and sometimes vitamin C tablets to help counter the cold form happening or if it did happen, it will not last that long. Do you normally get flu shots?

Thanks. I'll definitely try to nip this in the bud. I actually don't get a flu shot yearly, but I did get one this year. There were several people in the house that had caught (and gotten over) a cold, so I'm thinking it may be my turn.
