I have the Cold Virus from H#ll and it won't go away!!! I have had it for like two weeks or something, it brought Mr. Bronchitis along with it, too. I started sneezing again/having a sore throat/cough etc last night after being sure I was finally getting over it!
I'm really, really MAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111

Awww...I know several people who've had really bad colds this spring. A couple of them had to be on antibiotics for a secondary infection. Secondary infections usually come after the original virus and you think you're getting better. If a cold continues like that it's a good idea to get it checked out by a doctor to make sure it hasn't gone into pneumonia or something especially if you're coughing. :hug:

I totally feel your pain, we were all passing something around for 2 months, and, my daughter had a 10 day flu in there too...I was the first to get sick, in the beginning of March, and we all took turns being sick until the beginning of May...It was a BLAST! HA! Hope you get better soon, lots of rest, herbal teas, and hot soup!

I think I had that bug, too, and I sure hope I don't get round 2 like you have. Hope you feel better soon!

My aunt is just getting over a three week case of bronchitis, :sad:
She said something that helped with congestion was putting Vicks on the bottom of your feet while you are sleeping, she was amazed at how well it worked. It sounds weird I know, but try it and you might be suprised.

DH mentioned that trick before...as I have a near-4 month old that I'm nursing...I'm leery of putting smelly ointments on my body, probably mess up his nose or something. I've been doing steamy showers and lots of black tea and when necessary, taking hits off my inhaler.

I STILL have a terrible cough (no fever though, so I'm sure it's viral and not bacterial!!!) but I was able to go for 3 and a half mile walk today so...I'm well enough I suppose!

My daughter has had some awful lung/sinus infection. No fever, but it is bacterial and she's on antibiotics. This is the second time and the cough lasts months. Ugh.
I'd say if you can walk that far you're doing pretty well. :thumbsup:

Totally off topic but I tried to wipe that bug off my screen three times before I figured out it wasn't real.... d'oh!

For what it's worth, to help keep your cold from spreading around the house, if you'll mix up a 50/50 mix of Peroxide and Vinegar that's what they use in Bio-chem labs that handle things like salmonella and small pox. To that, in my birthing center, I add 20 drops of tea tree oil to a 1 quart bottle. While it may not smell like Roses or Lemons, it kills all the harmful bacteria, and doesn't breed super bugs like a lot of the "anti bacterial" cleaners can. Besides that, it actually kills the cold virus which most commercial cleaners fail miserably at.
Just mho, fwiw.
P.S. The fumes from this are minimal and everything is non-toxic, so there's no worrying about your little one with this.
