Cure for the Common Cold

Posted 2010.03.30 18.53 in Pointless Blather by Stephanie

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. There’s one miracle medicine that totally fixes all the symptoms.

You know when the cold is just coming on and your throat is sore, it hurts to talk, you feel all achy and miserable? I have the cure.

I call it: Baileys Irish Cream.

See, the cream coats your throat and takes away the rawness, while the alcohol acts as a mild anaesthetic, numbing the pain in your throat, sinuses, and joints.

Ok so maybe it doesn’t cure the cold… but anyhow, it’s good stuff.

H1N1 Avian Swine SARS Apnea

Today, I’m feelin’ mighty low. I don’t actually think it’s the flu, though it feels like it. Exhausted, dizzy, headache, no appetite, extremely sore throat, muscle aches all over… but I don’t think it’s the flu.

I’m pretty sure it’s from sleep apnea. Some near-fatal snoring leads to mouth & throat drying out which leads to the sore throat, and the oxygen deprivation can explain the rest of the symptoms.

Though, I spose it’s possible that the sleep apnea has left my immune system weakened and the flu could have snuck in when I wasn’t looking.

I feel this good:

I’d have stayed at home in bed, but today is month-end. The one day I cannot miss work. Blah.
