Sick

Having a summer cold is super annoying - but somehow I have been sick since Sunday night. I have been taking Alka-Selzer plus Cold, and Airborne (although I don't think that does anything), so finally I took Zycam. I meant to get the swabs, but got the nasal spray by accident instead. Dear Lord, it stung terribly! I absolutely abhor nasal spray and bet they use it as a form of torture in some countries. Flonase is the same for me, Afrin - ugh! It drips down your throat and comes out your nose, but you aren't supposed to blow your nose, and you are supposed to sniff deeply -what?!?! GROSS! Oh, and everything tastes terrible for hours. At least Zycam is menthol /eucalyptus and not that flowery junk - barf.

Do you use nasal spray?

feel better! yuck.
i do not like spraying odd substances up my nasal cavity. it's gross. and i'm SO afraid that i'll get addicted and end up on a 20/20 or, worse, Dateline special.

I used that stuff and was all better in no time flat. If that is all I have to do I can handle it.

Een -- If you want to feel better, this is all you have to do (I just did it becuase I am allergic to allergy / cold medicines)..

Sniff saltwater 2-3 times a day. drop some rubbing alcohol down your ears before you go to bed. and if you have a stuffed up nost -- some vicks rub overnight will clear that right up!!!

I swear it works -- your body will reject all colds out of your body!!!!
