I would say that I caught a cold this weekend, except that I certainly wasn't chasing it!  I've been feeling it coming on for almost 2 weeks -- ever since I visited my brother, whose wife was down with a bad cold, and I was thinking on Friday, "Gee, I almost wish I'd just get sick so I can get it over with".  Ask, and ye shall receive: I woke up sick on Saturday!

The worst thing I've noticed about this cold is that I have been seriously cranky and touchy.  I've been doing decent at not being so hypersensitive lately, but failing miserably these last 3 days.  Any recommendations?

[Of course, it doesn't help that I had a job interview on Sunday in which I was interviewed for the position I applied for, only to be informed that the position had already been filled, then smugly offered a different position for half my minimum salary requirements .  Sorry, venting....]

Colds:
Ginger tea, thymetea , elderberry sirup works wonders.
Eat as many benies as possible.

REST - sleep.

Well this is me except I have the laptop in front of me.

Looks like I did this to myself:


Knowledge is power.  SWAMI gives you the diet that will unlock the key to better health, and it's all based on your unique individuality.

When the cold gets the better of me I take Boiron flu remedy.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiron

Over here there was a remedy named Influgip which worked miracles for me, but I don't find it in the web. Others swear by Oscillococcinum.

I've no idea whether it's BTD compliant (last winter passed w/o any cold).

Well I still have the cold, but I think I'm already over the hump.  Used to take over a week to get there!  I expect to get over it a lot faster now on the diet than I used to, but I have also been taking schizandra and extra vit. A.  I've already been taking C.  I would have gone for some elderberry, but I didn't know the dosage, and it was pricey (I am currently STILL unemployed   ).

I can't read the language but can clearly make out Boiron and Influgip

Thanks Vicki!   I've just opened Boiron's website and it does seem they have stopped manufacturing Influgip. I guess there's some stock left in Israel, therefore it still appears in some Hebrew sites. I'll better try and get some, who knows; I have some pills left at home with expiry date 07/2009. Thanks again.

Yes, I paid today the equivalent of $10 for 120ml of the local "Sambucol" elderberry extract.
The dosage for prophylaxis is 10ml daily, for treatment 4 x 10ml daily.
