Haven't found the magic bullet yet. My wife has had it for, shoot 10 days at least. It hit me the other day, I worked in that misty rain and went from sweating to freezing a few times and it got a toehold. Been about cross eyed ever since. I tried to do some cabinet work today but the joints started whining too much. Both mine and the wood, my give a dang was broken  :D I've been gargling with warm salt water every few hours and that does help.

If there is anything, I don't know it. I'm not convinced the flu shot works. I have enough breathing problems that the lung dr wants me to get the shot every year, and he wants it in his office so he knows what batch I got. It seems like every year I start to get sick, but the shot, and all the other medicine for breathing fights it. I end up going weeks feeling nasty instead of getting sick and be done with it
I like anything that's old, and mechanical, agricultural, or industrial. Old mills, machine shops, beekeeping, sugarmaking, blacksmithing, whitesmithing, woodworking

The stuff is almost an epidemic here. I got the shot, didn't help a bi. Down for 2 weeks, still kinda weak. I never went to doctor, neighbors who did took just as long as me to shake it. Takes 2 weeks to shake it if you try to treat, 14 days if you just tuff it out.. ::)

It has been bad here too, the ER's are full. I finally got over the worst but it kicked my butt for almost a month. doc gave an antibiotic to control the chest congestion. It helped some, I also take Flonase aqueous, a prescription antihistamine to reduce the mucous which irritates my throat and causes coughing fits.

I figured this was gonna come up agin.  :D :D

As soon as i feel something comin on i take echinichea (spelling?) and vitamin c. i never seem to get as bad as others. If it ever does get bad i don't fight it. Just settle in for hot honey tea and long sleeps. Dad would always eat an onion sandwich and sweat it out. I haven't been brave enough to try that.
