I think I went through a quart of snot this morning.  Very gross stuff.  I took two of the Claritin pills though and am feeling better... I have a chronic sinus infection and have to use that Vicks Sinex stuff 2-3 times a day or my sinus membranes swell up and I can't breath.  Then, sometimes I have a water faucet for a nose and feel like I am dying.  I need to go to a doctor!

 :P

Been a while since I posted in here, so that's good.  But the cold started up last night with the scratchy, bad tasting roof of the mouth thing and a plugged nostril. 

It's moved on to a slightly less annoying stage now, but we're headed towards full plug up by morning I'd guess.  Been eating chips and salsa just so I can taste something.  But I'm already at the point where I can chug Coke, so it won't be long before I can't taste a damn thing. 

I think I know better, but I think I'll try to cure it with booze.

No you don't.  It's the best cure. 

Trust me, that's what they taught us in school.

A nice hot toddy should do the trick and if that doesn't work keep trying.  ;)

Sherry has had that blasted summer cold for the past week.

Thanks Brent.  Thanks a lot.  I'm not sure how you did it, but I've got a cold too, full blown.  Went to bed at 8pm last night, slept until 8am this morning.  The extra sleep didn't seem to do me any good though since I'm still hating life - sore throat, congested head and chest, cough, a bloody sore back and complete lack of energy.  And to top it all off, I'm stuck at work.

Bah, and here I was hoping to do some renovating this weekend, but I can barely lift the paint brush.   :'(

If it's any consolation, I'm in full blown massive snot mode.  Went out with a buddy last night and tried to drink it away.  Nope, didn't work.  Went to bed at 2, took a Contac and woke up at 11. 

Scratchy throat, nasty cough, going to buy more kleenex now. 

Misery does love company though. ;D

No wonder I feel like ****.  Just got back from the hospital, I've got pneumonia.  Lucky me, I get to go back to the hospital everyday for a week for IV antibiotics.   :-\

Just got back from the hospital,

Wow, you must be sick... isn't the hospital like a 3-4 hour car ride over to the nearest "real" town?   :P

Oh no, this is Canada.  We tax the **** out of everyone so we all have access to local, marginal health care.

Yeah, but the local hospital will have to do.  They use small tree branches filled with sap as syringes - it's not much, but it'll have to do.   :P

Ok, that's not my fault. >:(

Of course it is.   ::)

Well, it's life back to normal now.  I've just about recoved from my pneumonia and it's back to work this afternoon after missing over a week of work (but since I'm part-time, I only actually missed 4 days, so I should be able to get those hours back).

I certainly won't miss having that damn IV line hanging out of my hand.

I'm going through my first cold in a long time, almost two years I think.  Sucks.  Started getting the scratchy throat and sinus congestion Tuesday morning, before the drive back to Mass from Jersey.  The sore throat lasted until yesterday and then the chest congestion set in.  It isn't to the point where a cough helps and lots of green, yellow and brown **** comes flying out, so every cough hurts.    I'd expect the coughing of mucus soon, especially after I started downing Robitussin like candy.  I'm being semi productive at work, but I generally feel like ****.

Worst part is trying to stay away from my son.  He doesn't need a cold this early in life. 

Common sense isn't so common
