How much snot can the body produce? Or...
« on: July 30, 2004, 11:33 AM »
Summer colds.  

They suck, seriously.  I've had one for about two weeks now.  The Mrs. has it as well, but the kid thankfully has avoided it.  

It started like any other cold, scratchy throat, achy ears.  Then the runny nose came with itching.  Followed up by being plugged right up, hence the title of the thread.  It started getting better, but much like the Mrs.' cold, it then turned for the worse after about 8 days.  Now it's green and yellow everywhere.  I have boxes of kleenex all over the place and everyone on the phone is asking are you sick?  Duh.  

So, anyone else suffering with me?  Trade with me, I'll throw in a free virus ::)

I sometimes get allergy attacks that will last about a day.  I'm often baffled by how many times I can blow my nose and still get a solid snot rocket.

Ohh, a summer cold. Lucky you.  :P

Sherry has a cold too & man is she sick, sore throat & coughing, hardly talk  ;D  snot all over. Green & yellow, yum.  Sounds like it's working its way through.  :-\

Fear not, little buddy, 3:00 is still on.  

Cough medicine is a hell of a good idea.  I've got a pile of stuff to send you, but can't remember, aside from the medicine, what I'm supposed to send you.

Your spider?  Or the disease?  

Still snot-nosed, no worries there.  Healthy enough to drink Scotch and beer.

Man this cold is killing me. 2 boxes of Kleenex so far, the sneezing is driving me up the wall, the headaches...

This is the worst cold I have ever had!  >:(

Took tonight off work & will see how it goes tomorrow.  :-\

I've finally stopped sounding nasally.  Not bad, only a month of "summer" snot shot to hell.  What a doozy it was too, maybe it's heading west.

Well if that was the summer cold, it came & went. For the past 3 days I was really sick & today, ha.

I'm feeling really good & it's like nothing happened. Maybe all that medicine I took knock it out of me, I hope.  :-\

OK, not a summer cold but I have been sick for the past 2 days with a flu/cold again. Sore throat, runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, sweating (hot/cold). Blah!

I have never been sick so many times over the pass few months. 

Not looking forward to another summer cold or any flu/cold!  :-\
