I am so sick that as soon as the cold meds wear off I wake up choking :( I am going to have to leave the house at some point just for water and medicine. Ugh.
I'm so sorry you are ill. When I was sick, I put a small space heater in the room with me to keep the temperature stable (so the cold air didn't make me cough). Also, hubby would run the shower attached to the bedroom so that the humidity would permeate the room. If memory serves, that might not work so well with your room, but a steaming pot of water from the stove might help. Also, lots of showers when you feel like you are really choking--cough up as you have to and breathe in the steam (drink the water if its palatable). Heated chicken broth really helps, too.
I also recommend tissue with lotion; all the flu's this season seem to last a long time, and the lotion keeps your lips and nose protected from constant wiping.
I wish I had better tips for you (or had the power to make you not sick). I hope you feel better soon.
Thank you! I found some sugar free cough drops, andd made homemade chicken soup. I also turned up the heatr and drank hot tea. I then got 2 things of kleenex with lotion (lucky I got 2 as one is almost out). I may be working tomorrow, but if I do it will be from home.

That sucks sweetie. I'm sorry you're sick! One of those bad boys give it to ya? Kick him in the ding ding.
My little 12 year old cousin can't be kicked in the ding ding because he's just a wee boy. Besides, he was totally sweet at Harry Potter. LIttle did I know he was giving me the black plague.
thank you again for the medusa shirt. I think of you every time I wear it :)
No problem! I'm glad you like it. I think of you every time I share my favorite Icon of Coil song with a new person and they can't help but dance to it.
Dude! I've been gone for a while. I didn't even know you were at death's door. Are you in north Seattle area? Want me to slip some chicken soup under the door? (ie knock and run away)
I went out sans makeup in a very floppy hoodie and got myself some soup and medicine. I've barely left bed all day and I'm starting to feel a little bit better, at least I can sleep now with the medicine. I don't want to exposes anyone to this because my Mom and StepDad have it too, and I wasn't really that close to them, I think it's really contagious :( Thanks for the offer though. You rule.
