    I really don't want to take a test today. I know the material, but...gah, SO MUCH TYPING. Three essay questions for a total of 8ish pages typed on the computers at school. Ew.

    Oh god I feel like death.
    I have a terrible sinus headache. It feels like my head is about to explode. My eyes hurt so bad. My nose isn't runny or stopped up but oh sweet baby Jesus the pressure on my nose hurts. My throat is so sore and dry. My ears are stopped up.
    I've taken Advil cold and sinus.congestion and 2 aleve like 3 hours ago but no relief. Someone please tell me what to do. I HAVE to be better by tomorrow.

    You need to get some Sudafed, NOT the replacement stuff but the kind you have to show ID for and buy behind the counter. It's SO worth it for congestion. IME it's the only thing that really works. I'd combine real Sudafed with ibuprofen (I love Aleve for body aches but it's not so good for headaches IME) and see how that goes.

    Also, drink tons and tons and tons of water. Or even low-sugar gatorade or some other kind of electrolyte.

    I just don't see how people can be so messed up and PURPOSELY do things to make you sad and to rub things in your face. I hate it so much and I don't understand how someone can be such a huge part of your life and then just drop you like you're hot. (Yeah gotta use a little humor in there because otherwise I'd be crying - again.)

    I've been doing fine, but now I'm just...ugh. I can take this. I have so much to be grateful for and I try SO hard to focus on those things but it makes it really hard when someone keeps on forcing depressing $hit on you DAILY.

    I was having almost the same problem when the mountain cedar reached 20,000 & my body totally went loony loopy on me :/ anyway a friend of mine have us some antibodics & in a day or two I was good as new. Wish I could remember which antibodic it was ... I know it started with an "A".

    I also doubled up on lysine, zinc & vita C (life savers IMO) if you aren't all ready taking those then do, it can't hurt. Plus lysine also helps prevent cold sores :), when I am sick I usually get one but I started taking lysine when I first started to feel crummy & *knocks on wood* didn't get one this time.

    My vent: I started my period today & it's a bad month :/, I feel like I M going to pass out & I am going thru a playtex ultra tampon every couple of hours right now :/ sigh ... At least it happened today & not tomorrow ... When we have horses entered in schooling races.

    What can I get that has lysine in it? I've taken some zinc thanks to the medicine I've already taken.
    I've also done my grandma's home remedy for head colds which is honey and cinnamon in hot tea. I HATE honey, like HATE HATE HATE. So that was brutal to me lol

    Also I went to get some sutafed (sp? I cannot spell today for sh1t) and of course DG didn't have any and I have no way of going out of this little town to a bigger drug store.

    Nasal flushes are a godsend for sinus crap.

    Every night, my mom says, "Let's watch Doctor Who."

    Every night, one hour later, we're STILL not watching Doctor Who.

    So then I go upstairs and watch some classic Doctor Who (upstairs in my room because my mom refuses to watch the classics, and I love them).

    And every time, my mom whines that I'm always in my room and not downstairs watching Doctor Who with her.

    :wall: :wall: :wall:

    You just can go to Walmart & cruise the vita section, you have to look hard but it's usually in relative alphabetical order, it's just a straight lysine supplement.

    Oh & the antibodic I was talking about was amoxicillin I think but it's by prescription only.

    Amoxicillin is amazing stuff but its gotta be a prescription.
    I'll try and get to walmart tomorrow. No one is home to take me tonight and im in no shape to be driving.

    Also about the nasal flushes, my nose isn't stopped up or runny, it just feels like I have a 50 lb brick on my face.

    I don't care what you thought about the test, and I'm not going to agree with you that he's a terrible professor when he's my favorite professor ever. QUIT MESSAGING ME ON FACEBOOK. You're annoying and whiny and I don't actually like you.

    I don't quite get how you can kill your dog because you can't stand the thought of not spoiling it. And you go right to killing it before ANY sort of behavior modification training/medications. And you have a person absolutely willing and offering to come help, free of charge. It's a 10lb dog for gods sake, it's not going to get out and maul someone. You spend hours every week agonizing over the right foods to feed it, which treats this week, which toys..you are sobbing in my face, and you still back out of anything that inconveniences you. Absolutely ridiculous.

    I'm the first to say a homeless dog should probably be euthanized for aggression issues. I'm the first to say if you've tried behavior modification, spent time, and the dog is a danger to people, the dog should be euthanized. But this dog...does not need to be. Not before you've tried something, anything, other than 'wishing' and crossing your fingers.

    I'm so steaming right now.


    Yikes, scary :(. Hope he is ok.

    Yeah she's fine, just ready to get into shore from what I hear. It was her first cruise ever and probably her last lol. Her brother's been keeping us informed, I haven't talked to her. 4000 people and no power for that many days plus people getting sick. Does not sound like a fun vacation.
