My Head Hurts

No, not booze. I’ve not been able to indulge in almost 3 years, due to incapatibilities with my meds.

But, I have a hellacious head cold. EVERYTHING hurts.

Now, it is possible that I have the C-word. My son tested positive, with symptoms. So, no get-togethers this weekend.

Doesn’t matter much. The regime of care is much the same:

  • Copious fluids
  • Decongestants
  • Rest

My nose has been running for days. Today, I woke up and could barely raise my head off the pillow. So, doggo is NOT getting his normal walks – just putting him outside on a dog run. Too sick to manage that much time vertical

    It’s no fun. I came down with symptoms last Friday and my wife a day later. Both of us tested positive for Covid. The meds do help, and after a week we are mostly symptom free but completely exhausted. Take care of yourself and it will pass.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery, sir. Doggo will cope.

    Look for elderberry and zinc. Elderberry works like Ivermectin, apparently, allowing zinc into the cell, where it stops viral replication. Otherwise high zinc is of minor help.
    You can find sleep + immunity gummies, which have both, plus echinacea.

    Key ingredient is quercetin, in the skin of apples, elderberry, and quinine water. (Modern tonic doesn’t have enough quercetin.)
    I had it too, it sucked.

  1. So, that Apple a Day maxim might have a basis in science. Fortunately, I bought a 3 # bag last Thursday. I’ll try it. I am feeling a little better today.
