For me, I guess I have been lucky, so far! I say this lightly as not to stir up the Voodoo that surrounds us all.
Everyone I know has been suffering as well, in and out of remission it seems; who or what to blame is anybody's guess but there is something that I
do in preventing a sore scratchy throat from becoming worsened, especially with a cough. I put salt on my tongue!
If I am sound asleep and wake up with a cough, one of those irritating kind that seems to carry through the night, I simply lick the palm of my hand
and sprinkle salt upon it, then I lick that and allow it to flow down and soothe my throat. It stops the cough and by morning I am not waking up to a
torn and disrupted air passage.
I highly recommend it even to those on a restricted salt diet. Saline is soothing and it can act like an antiseptic naturally.
I do have body aches, I do have night sweats that appear as if I am breaking a fever, and then last night was my first cough. Oh yes, I have an
engine running in the background of my head, in my ears, very frustrating as it has been several years since this has occurred. My dreams have been
outrageously ridiculous, and then I find myself laying in bed thinking half the time. Our systems are out of sync.
I went to the store for the first time in three months and was shocked to see this incredible long line. At first I thought it was some sale or
what-not, but it was the line to the Pharmacy. There must have been 100 people in line. I have never seen this before in my life. Then as the day
progressed I noticed how sickly people look in general; blackened eyes, swollen faces, and a general malaise-look about everyone. I must of been a
beacon of shining health in comparison! LOL Needless to say I went back home and locked the gate for the next several months!
