I Have a Cold!

December 9th, 2009 Posted in Uncategorized

Look at poor sick me! Don’t you want to send me food and flowers??

I’m exaggerating. It’s just a standard cold, no fever. I feel just under the weather enough that I won’t feel guilty taking it easy today, but I don’t feel really bad. I’m not suffering.

There was a lecture I had planned to go to tonight though, and I really do think I should stay home. Just so it stays a minor, standard cold. I can’t believe after a lifetime of having colds I’m not really sure how to treat them.
Like, should I not do my exercises today? Would it be okay to go to the lecture?

    Yes to no exercise, no to the lecture. Stay home, wrap something around your neck, wear warm socks, drink hot liquids. Read a book, fall asleep, repeat.

    Amen to what Julia said and take some Emergen-C with your oj/water. I hope you are feeling better.

    Oh you look so bad!
    Japanese say “Usual cold would cause a ten thousand illness.” Stay warm at home.
    May be you can go to your lecture, then you have to stay home for 3 more days by doing so.
    Ginger, onion and lemon drink will help you. (miso and radish if you happen to have one)

    I’ve been staying home! I have a memorial tomorrow night for a friend, but the worst of my cold should be over by then.

    Ginger root tea gives me a boost the next day.
