Cold Remedies! Or I may Die!

Cold Remedies! Or I may Die!

I know, I know what does it have to do with depression but the point is this, I have some friends on this site and I know they don't want me to pass away from coldusbacilluswomanus which at least 10 times more deadly than man flu.

I have to go out soon and feel like crap, so here it is, I know about ginger, vit c and aloe...what else...

and no sticking my head in a bucket and cutting out eye holes so I dont infect others is not helpful! Though its true it may enhance my looks...lol.

Bev I also need to know what I should be wearing :-) Deportment as 'you' know is everything.

Whisky, and lots of it :) Failing that then Lemsip and good books. Hope you feel better soon. xxx

Try adding Manuka honey to the lemsip. Also zinc tablets are meant to be good for boosting immunity levels. Might be a bit late now though. You seem to be getting a few colds recently. Run down or surrounded by lots of sticky children? ah the joys of summer holidays.

Hello Sarah

Cannot afford Manuka Honey. Generally have to go to Aldi or Lidl

All the best

I tend to buy it when it is on special offer at Holland and Barrett. You know the buy one get one for a penny deals? Otherwise it is very expensive and definitely not for spreading on toast.....

Have a good day

Hello Caroline

Warm milk and honey.

Blackcurrent juice and honey

A glass of whisky and milk, this one is my excuse, have Hazel trained on this one.

Lemsips they contain paracetamol that reduces the temperature and calms a sore throat

You could also try Night Nurse or Day Nurse, they are supposed to suppress the symptoms

Hazel would never let me have a nurse, night or day. LOL

Hi Caroline you need to wear a yashmask to protect us lungies from your nasty germs please. Long flowing skirt etc. as well and dainty slippers. Ok? :D

Sorry you have cold chuck, you have my sympathesies. I like fresh lemon, fresh orange juice with honey. If you are feeling risqué have a tot of whiskey too. The more whiskey you have the more you will forget about it. :) Bev xx
