dammit.

EVERYONE else in the family has been sick, some more than others- wife about 3x (including a lovely trip to the ER for two bags of iv fluids), dad once, mom-in-law 2x, baby 2x. and now they're all done and healthy.

I survived.

now i get it. farking sinus infection. day-kill and ny-kill in my future. no heavy equipment operation in my future.

sad part: this really may squash the ability to go to the SD custom bike show.

dammit.

Do you think that daisy chaining off a neti pot would work?

I'm not sure either, but it might be fun to try.

Yeah... everyone at work was sick, the girl who dumped me was sick, my roommate was sick...

I woke up yesterday with a tickle in my throat. It's still there today. I started consuming ungodly amounts of Vitamin C... hpefully I can keep this bastard out of my system.

I'm also thinking that because it's just a small spot on one part of my throat (and not the whole thing, and it kind of goes in and out, being the worst after I wake up) that I may have slept funny and snored or something and just need to give it time to fix itself.

We'll see. I don't feel sick otherwise.

Maybe you should not have sucked on your abscess.

Neti = good. Zinc at the first signs of cold symptoms does make my colds go away quickly, and the symptoms are more mild. YMMV.

Echinacea, too, at the 1st signs.

I used to take zinc fairly regularly but I stopped because it seemed like every time I missed taking my zinc pill I started to get a cold. Maybe I should pick some up as I think mine are old and I might need some soon.

kode? Linked perhaps?



I use a Nasaline big syringe thingy I got at the health food store. Way better application UI than other things I've tried along the same line as the Netti Pot.

i've found that L-Lysine supplements help too if you catch it early enough. Its sometimes just marked as "Lysine," found in just about any vitamin section.
