Coughing, Sneezing, Runny Nose - you know the drill

Uggg! I have been just miserable with this cold the past few days. I think it's just a run of the mill common cold, I don't have a fever and aches associated with the flu. Wow, my nose runs and runs and I sneeze and there it goes again. I was able to venture out late today and purchase some Alka-Seltzer Plus, but that does not seem to do anything, just like the Sudafed and Zicam I've been taking.

Am I unique? No over the counter drug shortens or relieves my symptoms when I get a cold. Normally it starts in my throat and stays in my head and upper lungs for 3 days, accompanied by the misery of constantly stuffed head and running nose. My voice sounds terrible and I can't sleep. I did have the sense to stay home from work today and keep my misery to myself.


  1. This picture is perfect at demonstrating your misery! I hope the weekend allows you some time to kick back (with a box of Kleenex of course) and get better.

  2. Get well soon, Marty.
    And sorry! I bet your cold is from us. If not from us, from the 100 other people on the plane with you.
