So Sorry Guys…
So sorry guys – I have been hit with the Mongolian Death Flu (nah, I don’t actually know what it is all I know is that I quite literally can’t breathe and I’m pretty sure I’m going to die so if I totally disappear that’s what happened). I have so much I want to post about and I am trying to get to it, I promise. And I will. Just as soon as I can focus on something for more than five minutes at a time without coughing, sneezing or passing out again. Going to go do a shot of whiskey to see if that helps. Any home remedies you have that you can leave below would be so appreciated!

Do you need sudafed? It sounds like you need sudafed. Could also boil some water and breathe in the steam to help loosen things up. Let me know if I can help.
I have sudafed but haven’t tried it yet (been doing Dayquil/Nyquil). Yesterday I was okay just tired and today I am achy, sneezing, sniffly, exhausted, coughing, headachy, etc. etc. etc. Took a really hot shower earlier and almost passed out, lol. Will definitely let you know and thank you. Kiddo’s better?
I suggest hot water with squeezed lemon in it. Get well soon!
I’ve been doing cold water with lemon so will try it hot. Thank you!!
Sorry to hear you’re sick, Misty. My Wife and Daughter are just getting over a bad bug themselves. Rest and drink plenty of very hot Honey Chamomile tea if you can muster it. I sometimes throw a Halls cough drop in the tea (It melts pretty quickly) for my Wife and it fixes her right up. Feel better Kiddo!
Thanks, Victor! I have tea and Halls on hand so I’ll give it a try – much appreciated!
Anytime. Feel better… It’s October girl, you have some horror flicks to review! 😀
I know!! And that’s why this is all kind of sad-making. I’m doing the entire run of Nightmare plus the documentaries.
Oh wow. Cool. Can’t wait.
Well I’m sorry to hear you’re not feeling well, but you should count your lucky stars it wasn’t Mongolian Death Worm. I hear they’re troublesome. As to home remedies, I know that people suggest orange juice for people with colds and cough syrup might help that cough. So the only logical conclusion is that you should mix those two with alcohol to make some unholy purple drank/mimosa concoction. Please don’t consider that sound medical advice. Anyhow, get well soon.
No, no, that shot of whiskey is kicking in and I fully consider that sound medical advice. 😉 Don’t know that I’ll mix them but I do have both – thanks Vincent!
Mucinex and a shot of whiskey for me.
Did the whiskey (and it’s now 800 degrees hotter in here, lol). No Mucinex though. Thanks for the tip!
Get well soon, Misty! Wish you health! Drink as much liquid (especially water) as you can and often.
Thank you, Arlen! Much appreciated!
sleep, gatorade, brandy is good, more sleep. hope you feel better. Vicks vapor rub helps me after a long hot shower.
Vicks – now that I don’t have. Thanks for the suggestions, K!
of course! hope you feel better quickly
Round these parts we call that Tropical Shiatsu Ninja Flu. It’s some bad juju. As far as a cure goes, smother your entire body with Vick’s Vapo-rub, then wrap yourself in a thrice-bleached goatskin. Take with two bottles of scotch and call me in the morning.
Done and done. At least after I find my thrice-bleached goatskin…
Jager. Cures what ails ya.
Jager makes me a sad sad girl. Too sweet.
i have seen horror movies start out this way. Someones creates the a virus, that person plays with animals and the animals get it, next think you know a group of PETA members break out the animal only to unleash said virus on the populace and then you have kind of like zombies running after you……I need to watch 28 Days Later again.
I can actually see that happening with this. Utterly sad-making.
I am currently boarding up my house.
Family recipe cure here: Find an old Mexican lady that speaks in broken english, but mainly spanish. She will need you have the tail of a toro (bull), vicks vapor rub, a bottle of sprite or something citrus soda (I recommend Jarrito juice) and then you will use all the ingredients (i will let you figure it out how to use them) and then watch shitty telenovelas while the grandma makes you pig intestine menudo.
So I need to go back to Alabama? Cause all of that I kind find there at my brother from another mother’s house, I’m sure! Could I just do that egg breaking thing instead maybe?
Listen I don’t know what goes down in Alabama, but I feel that the harsh love of an abuelita from Mexico and her bag of mystic, rudimentary holistic healing does wonders.
Alabama it is then. 😉
lol make it so
Ouch! Hope you get better soon.
Thanks! Feel a teensy bit better today.
Cos you know, whiskey does wonders for your health!
Actually it does have medicinal qualities and is quite commonly used for colds (for example in hot toddies). 🙂 Just like a shot though, nothing more.
Get well soon my friend!
Hey I’m not on your blog roll! this hurts my heart!
Oh no!! Not cool!! I just went through and added people too! 😦 I don’t know how you didn’t get on there other than I had like a million people to go through. Adding you now!
Awesome! I feel important now! Thank you! Hope you are feeling better today.
After taking the majority of everyone’s advice (the majority – some of it was a little out there ;)) – I’ve at least left my bed today which is an improvement. 🙂 And you ARE important!
You need to kill a hooker.
Killing a hooker solves EVERYTHING.
Now why didn’t *I* think of that??
Because you are a woman.
It’s possible that you’re just in the middle of a ghoul transformation. Sometimes they take days, but you’ll feel better once you’ve fully transformed. Keep drinking and ride it out.
Oh wonderful. Thanks for the heads up. 😉
Get well. Drink something hot, with lemon, seems to always help.
Bit late, but you could kill a chicken and dance naked round a fire haha 😀
Yikes, I would feel too much like an extra in “Mark of the Witch” if I did that. 😉
