Sickness Is Not My Cup Of Tea!

I’ve been off-the-air and out for the past couple of days.  Not because I wanted to, but because of disease.

I’m sick.  That virus/cold/sore throat/hit-by-a-truck, disease that I was sure I was immune to, (everybody was getting it, but not I) hit me.

I stayed home.  I certainly didn’t want to infect anyone else at work, and, the tread marks from the truck hitting me were still visible.   Oh, and I couldn’t talk.  Darn hard to do a radio show without a voice, I don’t care what they say.

Okay, so it’s a virus, a cold-type virus, and, guess what, there is no cure for the common cold. The common cold is a self-limited illness that will resolve spontaneously with time. I know that if I take anything it will help at alleviating the symptoms with the cold while my body fights off the infection.  That said, if I’m sneezing my head off and nose is running off my face, I’m popping pills!

I have been getting rest and drinking plenty of fluids.  I could take over-the-counter medications such as throat lozenges, throat sprays, cough drops, and cough syrups but they will not prevent or shorten the duration of this cold, and gargling with warm saltwater can help those with a sore throat.

What about you, sick?  Stay home and take care of yourself.  Better to kick it and not give it to anyone else.  Work will survive.

As for me, I’ll fight this thing off and build up my immune system so I’ll have time to catch the flu.
