Stay at home with the cats... or act on stage. My lifelong dilemma.

The Holy Hee

Yes, I'm sick again - this time the doctor tells me that it's the 'real thing' (a very bad bout of influenza) but I should be better in a couple of days time. In the meantime, I'm so weak that I could hardly make it up the stairs, let alone type a nice long entry... so until I feel a bit better, regale yourselves with this!

I'll be back...

    Thanks p. And tried echinacea a couple of years ago - didnt work!!! The only thing that seems to have worked is the flu shot, which i didnt take this year but shall take next year.

    Echinacea doesn't work for everybody, but apparently vitamin c (before the cold/flu) does.

    I don't trust the flu shot, even though it works.

    Get well soon! ;-)

    Ta Toni! The first time I took the flu shot I got sooooo sick that I promised myslf - never again! But then last year I took it so as to be able to (possibly) survive panto. And it worked. I only had one small cold during the whole winter. this year, I have been SICK the whole winter! So next year, i resolve to take the shot as well as many, many vitamin c tablets!

    Poor Reesa. I've just bought a nice bag of oranges. And if you want an even better remedy, I have chocolate orange in my drawer ;-)

    I had the flu shot for the first time this year... and wonder of wonders, I haven't had anything worse than a couple of sniffles.

    Mikkina Reesa, here's my number one tip: lipsalve really helps tissue-burn caused by too much blowing of the nose!

    *recommends more chocolate*

    awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww... yes sha want fsied please! although i must say the hubby is doing a wonderful job of taking care of me, down to making lots of hot coffee and even calling the doctor when i was particularly delirious on Sunday evening!

    maltagirl, will certainly take up your suggestion as my nostrils are... well, i'll leave it to your imaginations as it is simply too gross to describe them! i spent a COMPLETELY sleepless night last night , not being able to breathe and blowin my nose constantly. I think Kleenex should sponsor me!

    And yes, Kween - you stick to the echinacea!

    Hope that by the time you read this commment you are up and about again....Nose will look gross even after the fever and sniffles have subsided, so I suggest someone knits you a nose-cosy. tee hee! Can I borrow your hubby when I am sick? Mine is hopeless even at the best of times where fsied is concerned.

    I had the flu jab for the first time this year and it knocked me off my feet for a day.
