    I thought Id see who wanted to jump on the misery band wagon with me.

    Who else has this thing (cold/flu) that makes you ache so bad you want to levitate out of your own body, head throbs, your coughing up stuff you never knew could live in you, and your so weak you feel like your 80 years old?

    If so join me on the misery bandwagon, its leavin in 5 minutes.

    Yep - me too (and Sarah too - I'm a giving kinda guy). Mine lasted about two weeks. I couldn't get any sleep cause of the dang cough, but the only way to get rid of it was to sleep and rest - but with the dang cough, etc. etc. etc. (insert broken record here). Took three days off of work - shoulda taken the whole week! I took an antihistimine before I went to bed (script that Sarah brought home from the hospital). That dried up my sinuses - which slowed down the cough - so I could get some rest. Also - get some Robatussin (sp) DM cough goo - it'll help knock down the cough (a little).

    Me too, and NOANGEL says it's allergies.......Don't think so. I've never had allergies and this kicked my butt for a couple of days and has lingered around for many more, just like a winter cold/flu. Two of the days I could hardly move and had ZERO energy. Sore throat, cough, congestion, etc., etc.

    Luckly the caughing isnt too bad but the aches and no energy and I cant breathe out of my nose. I cant taste any food. I miss the taste of food LOL. I hogged down a carmel sunde earlier and didnt taste it. Thats frustrating for a woman when we have to pay for it later when it hits our hips. I could have at least enjoyed it first.

    I havnt been resting and giving it a chance like I should. Probubly why it wont go away.

    Yep I had it last week, then I shared it with my wife, two year old daughter and 4 mo old son. Got to keep it going.......

    I couldn't lay down to go to sleep w/o coughing for 20 minutes straight. Oh what fun.

    <font color=blue> I'm usually healthy as an ox but this winter I got a cold 3 times ! I've been pretty run down though and I'm sure my immune system has been low a lot !
