    I feel your pain man.
    I went 5 days without a smoke this past week, because of a sinus infection.
    Started feeling better yesterday, so I made up for it this weekend.

    Everybody I know is sick with a head cold right now, some sort of global pandemic. I better watch them carefully in case it's the start of a Zombie Epidemic or something.

    It's that time of year. Shotgun vitamin C, a Claritin a day, open doors with your elbows, wear a HAZMAT suit in public, and drink 500 glasses of water a day. Every time I see someone hacking in public I go the other way.

    I have a home cure for colds that works. Cures it in 5 minutes. Email me if you want the cure.

    Re: Flu/ head cold.

    For all you members still dating. No holding hands, no hugging, no "spooning", no kissing, no sharing ice cream cones, no sleeping in the same bed, no sex (unless it's a solo thing and you've washed your hands prior to the event), no using the same hanky while you're watching a Packers football game at Lambeau Field this December, no "high fiving" for any reason, and the most important preventative measure..... don't share your pipe with your sweetheart no matter how much begging you hear.

    Be well all.
    Ol Brokedik.

    Do the nasal irrigation thing to break the cycle of sinus infections. Just avoid the brain-eating amoebas.

    I couldn't taste a darn thing when I was smoking this morning, and now at midnight I figured out why. I'm catching a cold as well. Airborn here I come.

    Everytime I see somebody hacking in public I want to punch them in the throat. STAY HOME AND STOP MAKING EVERYBODY ELSE SICK.

    I think the living would envy the dead

    I feel you!
    I just got a big ol box of baccy about a week or so ago. The next day I had swelling and pain on the right side of my neck, inside next to my throat. Found out I have two infected lymph glands near my esophagus. So now, per doc's orders I'm taking two antibiotics a day for the next week and a half. I really really want to try my new blends already!!!

    My idiot employers are attendance Nazis, resulting in the majority of our workforce being sick at work most of the year, and then they wonder why productivity suffers.

    I had a lot of fun throat punching my HR department with Canada's labour laws though, they were actually stupid enough to tell one of my coworkers she didn't get a promotion because she used an EMR day because she was sick.

    Flying during flu season isn't my favourite thing to have to do. Yup, getting in to an aluminium tube of disease is really a pleasant thought. When we were allowed to smoke on commercial aircraft the air circulation was a lot better. Now it seems that aircraft are just used as replacements for petri dishes.
