Sore throat

I wouldn't call it a cold yet, because my nose is perfectly fine and there aren't too many coughs yet. However, my throat is dry und uncomfy since yesterday from about noon. So the night was really uncomfy, I was only halfsleeping and waking up every hour or so to drink a bit.

All cough and sore throat drops come with either sugar or artificial sweeteners and those are probably wreaking havoc with my insulin levels, which is just the wrong time since high insulin levels suppress the immune system. Darn it. Thanks to the pharma industry my cold will stick around longer. Yes, I could go without, but that would mean I'd have to drink gallons of tea and there is a limit to that too.

So, instead of going to the National Library for writing some applications, I went to my parents to write them there. It's warmer, I can drink tea and I don't disturb anyone with an occasional cough. And I can take naps whenever I feel like it.

Oh, by the way, this is my first "cold" since May last year.



  1. Colds really suck! I hope you get it out of your system quickly! I take lots and lots of vitamin C. Good luck!

  2. Dose up on the vitamin C. Get some of the 1000mg packets and put them in water, I swear by them.

  3. Hope you feel better soon :(
