Joanie: Knowing what you've been dealing with for so long reminds me what a minor tickle this actually is.

Sallie: Great recipe! I'm gonna have to try it even whaen i'm not sick anymore.

T: Thanks for looking out for me!

In this case, it is definitely a cold though. The watering eyes wasn't due to irritation, it was a reaction to the intense sinus pressure. I'm now finishing up with the wracking cough, but in general, am coming out the other side.

I used to suffer severe hay-fever when I lived in Ontario. It would hit in mid summer just as wedding season got into full swing. God that was miserable! My father, who also suffered, eventually found a 4 shot preseason treatment that worked for him, so he gave to me as well. Nothing like shooting up with one's father!


Sorry you're sick! But I need to stick my two cents worth in even though you haven't asked, but are you certain it is a cold? (is this deja vu? - Haven't I asked you this before?) Watery eyes and sneezing are signs of an allegy. When you blow your nose, is the mucus clear? If it's clear, it's an allergy, hon and cold remedies are not going to help anyway! Do feel better, though!!! Sending you good vibes!!!


I am sending my favorite chicken soup recipe your way sent with *Hugs*...

Green Chili Chicken Soup
"A cure for the common cold."

6 cups water
1 (4-ounce) can diced and peeled mild green chilies
5 bouillon cubes
1 whole clove garlic, crushed and minced
1/2 cup diced white onion
1/2 pound chicken tenders
1 tablespoon red chili powder
2 cups uncooked egg noodles
2 tablespoons Mrs. Dash seasoning
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 shots of brandy
1 tablespoon of paprika
Bring the water to a boil. Add the bouillon and the chicken first. When the bouillon is completely dissolved, and you have a good stock, the chicken should be finished too. Remove the cooked chicken tenders, cut them into bite-sized chunks, and return to pan. Then, add remaining ingredients; turn the heat down to low-medium.

"If you're reeeealllly sick, you might consider adding vitamin C tablets to the stock." :-)

Makes enough for four good servings.

Hope you feel better soon! I feel for you. I know exactly what you've been going through.

Sheesh...I feel responsible, too, in a way. You and LeeAnn both ended up with my crud.

HEALTHY THOUGHTS coming your way!
