Another friend asked for advice about her cold, I told her what I do just today.
I woke up very early and did not feel right. Blood sugar was a little low for me so I ate breakfast and back to bed.
We had planned to go to Portland to take in the area where the hospital is. It was a good plan but it has not been implemented, another day we will try again. The promised snow has arrived and we will be staying home.
I ate a piece of dried fruit a friend gave me and I should have known better I began to cough and wheeze. Sulfites do that all the time and I just let my guard down. My new Dr suggested I need not fill my inhaler because I had not used kit in a year and it had expired I do have the Epipens and my throat is very sore.
I am about to go to bed in the spare room but I had to say goodnight to my spark friends .No fever just a bad cough and wheeze so far.
I usually do not use cough meds. I will use honey-SPARINGLY and will use some stinky Vicks, my Gran always used Vicks when we were kids. It has been around a very long time so it must be good.
HUGS to all Pat in Maine. Next year has to be an improvement on this one for certain.
I Will catch you in the A.M. !
GOODNIGHT ! from Snowy Maine.
