I hate colds...
June 14, 2008

I am fortunate in that I don't get head colds very often. When I sense one coming--maybe I have sniffles or my throat irritates me slightly--I self-medicate with echinachea (not how you spell that, I'm sure) tea and orange juice. It has staved off one cold after another.

Two nights ago, I went to sleep feeling great and woke up with an absurdly sore throat and the sniffles. I started drinking the tea and orange juice as usual, but I knew it was already too late. What do you do when a cold begins while you're asleep?

Today I work. I don't want to go to work. My nose is running bad--when it really wants to, it runs so badly that I could honestly just sit for hours blowing my nose. But of course, I must. So I'll be doping up on cold medicine and miserable all evening, as a follow-up to all day yesterday (which thankfully I had off from work).

Ugh. I hope it's another three years before I have another cold like this again!

I used to get a ridiculous amount of colds, despite eating a reasonably healthy diet.

These days, I live about 50 metres away from an entire street of takeaways. I make full use of these on a regular basis, and am as fit as a fiddle.

Some univeristy should fund ridiculous research into my immune system.
