I have a cold - and I want it to be a Man Cold. I want to be miserable, and demand attention... You see, it has to be a man cold - I got it from my man. I want my share of sympathy and care that I have had to dispense for the past 5 days.
Well - I should not complain, some wonderful man just filled up my hot water bottle so I can stuff it inside my dressing gown and enjoy the comforting warmth.
Funny thing is - I am finding it hard to resist going down to the Chemist (which is right under our Unit) and stocking up on every variety of cold medicine there is. Then I remind myself, we have been getting colds for centuries, and survived quite well without all sorts of mixtures and potions.
So what natural remedies do you use for a cold. The old lemon and honey I remember. I took a few Asprin last night for the raging sore throat - and then remembered why I need to avoid them - it has irritated my stomach already. Hopefully that will settle soon if I don't continue with the Asprin.
