Saturday Sounds 15 or Plop Plop Fizz Fizz

I've had a cold for a week. I feel like crap. I want to sleep all day and do nothing else. Of course I cannot do that. Damn, being a grown up sucks sometimes. I did take, what I called, a half of a sick day on Thursday and stayed in bed until 1PM and then sat on the couch blogging until 3PM. That was a great day.

Alka Seltzer Plus was the best cold medicine EVER! Then one day the FDA decided to take out a key ingredient, the only decongestant on the market that worked. Now everybody had to suffer, just because it occasionally caused a teensy brain hemorrhage in some people. It also was the best hangover med too by the way.

Now I have to sign my life away for a couple Sudafed.

What do you take for a cold?

I try not to take medicine, unless I have a flu or something. For colds, I just do a little nasal spray.

I rarely get colds, haven't had the flu in over 20 years, but when I did have one cold, I bought the capsules Nightquil/Dayquil and they worked beautifullllly.

I used to take the AS Cold stuff too. Worked like a dream. Now I can't find anything that works. I seriously think the only thing that works is to let it run its course and suffer accordingly.

Feel better soon!

It does suck to be sick when you are a grown up. There is not time to be sick. I hope you feel better.
