Damned cold or flu or whatever it is. So begins day #5. I keep thinking it is almost gone, and then I wake up and I can't hear or breathe, my eyes are burning, cigarettes suck, and I just wanna kill. I felt so worn out from it after work yesterday I didn't even myLot any, so it's been about 20 hours or so since I have posted much of anything. Didn't go on facebook either. *sips coughee* Gonna have to try to remember to hit WallyWorld today regardless of how I feel after work, used up the last of my coughee to make this cup, and if I don't have any here tomorrow morning, things will get ugly. Kept the morning facebook video to under one minute today...didn't really feel like doing it, but since it's been a 'thing' for almost 2 and a half years now (except for a short break from it) I decided I needed to post something no matter how short it was. One thing I didn't do was scroll through all the discussions posted in the past 20 hours here...I normally keep right on top of that, but it just isn't happening today. Bleh.

I have had one cold this year. It was enough. I have added a humidifier to my bedroom, which I think will help. Since I work around kids I get exposed to a lot. I am sorry your cold is lingering. They usually last at least a week. Yes, be sure to get that coffee, a morning without it is awful.

You need to add some ginger to your coffee in the morning. Helps with colds. Ugh! I hate colds.Seems that someone always decide to fix some yummy delight and wants me to taste it whenever I have one. Can't taste, breathe or move when I have one.Thank goodness,and knock on wood, I haven't had one in several years. Hope yours is over soon and that that one doesn't creep back.

Yesterday I did not do most of anything that I did want to do but I felt more free by not doing all of it. Better to have a day off as well. Take care of that Cold it will go. Leeks fresh ones boiled and onion and celery are good at clearing colds like that. You drink the liquid after its made or make it into a Soup. Take care now.

I had a cold that hung around in various manifestations for three weeks. I was beginning to think that I wasn't ever going to have energy again. Thankfully the symptoms finally passed, and I pray yours do soon as well!
