Just Plain Sick

I’m sick.  Coughing, oozing, aching sick.  Voice like a chain-smoker after a Jack Daniels binge sick.   Under the duvet sick.  Chicken noodle and ginger tea sick.  Third box of kleenex in two days sick.  Not really up to blogging sick.



We cancer types aren’t supposed to take cold medication because it might mask our symptoms as they get worse (and then before you know it we get nasty infections.) So please, if anyone has any home remedies for colds, I beg you to share them with me.  Raw garlic, steam baths, eye of newt — whatever, I’m open to anything.
