Had a head cold about a week ago, and it seemed to pass, so I had a few nice bowls of Peterson 3-P and Riverboat Gambler, and so on. Too soon. So the cold came back as a chest cold and it's hung on for several more days. I really dislike being down, so I do various tasks and then get down again. A few OTC meds, plenty of liquids, hot ginger tea and various soups (homemade!) Then the cough stopped, and now it's back, but "productive," gross but maybe clearing out. It could be flu diminished by the flu shot, or just a standard late fall virus. So no more pipes for me for another week or so. I did an allergy medicine when I was sneezing, and the antihistamine may have boloxed up my immune system. You have to be careful with treating a bug as an allergy, just when you need all your attack cells.
