Hey, I Recognize This Cold...

It's the one that has already laid low half the folks I know. You know, the one with the sore throat that feels like you're swallowing rusty razor blades that have been dipped in acid.

I'm gonna stay home today and try to lessen the duaration and severity of this thing with rest, Halls and Zicam. Any other advice?

Perfect time to listen to and label all of the blank CDs; catalog VHS tapes and finally watch the NetFlix DVDs that have been laying around for three months.. oh yeah, learn how to make beer at home.

I don't have any advice but rest and chicken soup. And don't come to Memphis. Y'all keep that nasty bug in Nashville!

(here through Aunt B's, at Tiny Cat Pants, where I am cross-posting this)

I use this: http://www.tylenol.com/product_detail.jhtml?id=tylenol/cold/prod_sdt.inc&prod=subpsdt#Top when I have that awful, throat-flaying cold thing.

It is frightening (look at the amount of acetomenaphin in it. One dose is more than the daily reccommended total, generally), but it works immediately, and feels quite pleasant, generally.

I'm with the Lynnster. Keep that razor blade crap in Nashville.
Also, Hot Toddy.
Or maybe two.
You and Aunt B. are having a rough week, aren't you?

If you go to the doctor try to get some of the hard stuff - Tamiflu.

Second on the throat culture.Razor blades in throat = strep.

Crap, my throat feels like razor blades too. I'm sweating bullets, too. You think a cold or strep? :(

Yeah, what have you people in Middle Tennessee been DOING up there? I just saw on Kathy's blog where now she's sick too and think I counted three or four others today. You Strep Bloggers need to stay home and quit goin' around kissin' each other and stuff.

(ps hope you are feeling better today, heh.)
