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.

@JolietJake Ear things are never good. These cold/flu things tend to affect my throat and ears more than anything else. Not good!

@JolietJake take a decongestant to clear everything out. That should help to make you feel better

I feel your pain. My annoying Persistant cold has been almost gone, and much worse for over a month. This morning it is on the wane again. Hope yours clears quickly.

@JolietJake staying in bed is not an option. I get up when the alarm sounds. I'm usually more than ready to get up. If I lay in bed for too long, envy thing starts to hurt. Much better to get up and start the day.

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.

Hope you get well soon! I felt like a sick zombie for about a week. I am finally better, and used to this colder tempature. But I wear my big jacket and scar outside all the time now. Plus my winter gloves.

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.

If it is a cold then you are going to have to put up with it for nine days. My grandmother told me that and it is always the case. Stay warm and keep liquids at a high level and you will, I hope, soon feel better
