My Winter Cold

Almost every year I have a summer cold and a winter cold. I thought maybe I would miss the 2010-2011 winter season, but unfortunately it's here. It started as a tickle in my throat on Sunday. Normally my colds start in my head, not in my throat, so I was hoping it was nothing more than a sore throat. Not so, however. Last night the tickle was worse, and I woke up this morning barely able to speak. During the day it got better any time I didn't have to speak, worse when I had to speak.

Now, tonight, it's moved to my head as well. Stuffy nose, pressure behind the eyes, tired feeling. I'm sure it's not flue; it feels like every one of my previous 50 or so colds, just that it went from throat to head instead of the other way.

So, I'm going to take it easy. I'll cut back some on my computer time, meaning I'll post here a little less frequently. But I will post as I get the chance.

Hope you're feeling better soon. I find that Airborne and oscillococcinum (if I'm achy) or cold calm plus zinc help a lot.

Thanks, Ronda. I took some simple, generic otc stuff to control symptoms. By Tuesday, when I gave my first paper at the conference, I was about 98% recovered.
