    Moomba I am getting sick.

    You know that point when you know you are coming down with something? I'm at that point right now. My throat is just beginning to itch, my sinuses are starting to ache, and I'm feeling woozy.

    And yet this is only the calm before the storm. It is the worst feeling ever.

    I am going to drown myself in Vitamin C and go to bed early.

    What do you do when you know you're getting sick?

    Open a window or find some way of creating a cool draught and drink some hot lemonade with a bit of honey and extra lemon juice.

    But seriously, I take a benadryl and drink a trout ton of water.

    I take a pain medication to hold off the fever as long as I can, drink a ton of water, and eat all the hot food I won't be able to hold down the next day.

    I bake cookies, make tea, and welcome the sickness warmly.

    I'll call my doctor to get my precious MC ready and a hotel suite with a sexy hairy man as a massager stationed outside the room that comes with buffets served as meals 10 times a day. You need a very relaxed and sumptuous environment to recuperate from illness you know.

    Nearly every day I get to a point where I almost vomit and then spend the rest of the day feeling like trout. Nearly every single day. Got Bison Flu, you know?

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.
    Trying to catch me riding dirty.

    A cold is a viral infection which means only time and your immune system will kill it. Almost everything you do to "treat" a cold is actually a treatment of a symptom, not of the cause.

    One thing you can do is when you have a fever, don't treat it and keep your body warm, but not dangerously so. This causes your cellular reproduction to slow down, therefore also slowing down the reproduction of a virus.

    Going to bed early is also good - adequate rest ensures your body is able to do it's best to destroy those punkass hijackers.

    Vitamin C isn't gonna help you, though. While it is an important component of the immune system, megadosing on Vitamin C will actually decrease it's absorption rate and you'll pee it out. And if you really megadose on it you could get kidney stones which I understand to be totally crummy and no good.

    Rest, fluids, warmth, and waiting, sister.

    Signature by rubah. I think.

    I eat food, drink orange juice and blow snot.

    I dont know why people say yellow snot is bad and clear snot is good, i hate the early moments of sickness when im producing a lot of mucus but its clear, my head hurts and blowing my nose hurts and swallowing motions hurt, but the next day each day i blow out some thick yellow snot or phlegm it feels like a weight is lifted out of my airways and i feel like a million bucks
    Kefka's coming, look intimidating!
    Have a nice day!!

    I generally don't get colds, or at least don't notice them with my allergy meds. But about 2-3 times per year, I'll have a major allergy problem where I have awful sinus issues and sore throat for several days. I drown myself in decongestants on top of my allergy meds to try to fight it off.

    I have a rash on my legs and arms...and a sore in my mouth...

    I took some vitamin C and some tea. I will probably just drink water, but wtf do I do for the rash? Baby powder?
