Frak

My still-compromised immune system has let me catch hubby's cold. I am bundled up with a huge mug of tea and I'm trying to ignore my aching legs. I just hope this frakking cold isn't as bad as that nasty flu I had and from which I still haven't completely recovered.

Oh well, if that's all I have to gripe about, I must be doing okay.

I don't know. I think catching a frakking cold entitles you to be doing not-so-okay, especially if you're still recovering from a nasty flu. :-( Take it easy and feel better soon!

I don't know if it was a coincidence, or just a milder strain of cold, but I took COLD-fX this time around and seemed to recover more quickly. If you haven't tried COLD-fX already then it might be worth a shot.
Thanks for the commiseration. I have high blood pressure, so I can't take most cold remedies. I tend to just let nature do what nature does. I figure human bodies had been fighting these battles for centuries before pharmaceutical companies existed. I also believe that every bug I defeat improves my immune system so I can fight off the next one. That's the same reason I don't use antibacterial stuff.
Cold-fX is actually a herbal remedy, so it's probably something you could use. I know my mom was thinking of trying it and she also has to avoid most cold medications due to high blood pressure. Of course, you should probably check with your doctor to make sure it's okay.
I think the cold is starting to break up. I find rest and fluids make a lot of difference in the duration and severity.
Ook! I'm sorry. Hope you feel better soon.

Mmmmm, oranges. I usually don't like oranges, but right now they sound really tasty.
