Ach, it is miserable being poorly.

Can your dp tend to you? Have you got any good meds?

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Thu 02-Jun-11 19:54:57

you think that finally the kids are old enough not to be up a million times a night and that when you choose to go to bed you can and THEN you get a stnking cold and cant

also I felt crap last night too and gecko was up three times with night terrors <hummmph>

nethunsreject Thu 02-Jun-11 19:56:36

Now all you need to do is wait till they are old enough to look after you. grin

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Thu 02-Jun-11 19:57:05

got no good med, I have some paracetemol with caffeinie but I have had a couple of vodka and lemonades hoping I might feel better so maybe I should take them

dp has gone to bed about an hpur ago, he is on day three of antibiotics for achest infection and he had to go to work this morning (5.45 am to skin a sheep every 7 secs till 2pm with one 10 min break....)

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Thu 02-Jun-11 19:57:55

maybe I shouldn't take them I meant

nethunsreject Thu 02-Jun-11 19:59:40

I'd take the paracetamol personally!

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Thu 02-Jun-11 20:16:33

<splutter cough>

PatriciatheStripper Thu 02-Jun-11 20:17:42

If you don't have any cough syrup .... peel and slice an onion, then rebuild it slice on slice in a small bowl, sprinkling brown sugar over each slice before adding the next one. In an hour or two it will have produced a syrup which is pretty good for coughs. Better than nothing, and most people will have an onion and some sugar in the house, or a neighbour will. (White sugar will do, but brown is better)

Then ask someone to go out in the morning and get you some Pholcodeine. It's great stuff, much better and cheaper than any of the branded ones, you have to ask the pharmacist for it as it is kept behind the counter.

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Thu 02-Jun-11 20:19:16

<notes down pholcodeine and goes to rummage for an onion and sugar>

thankyou patricia

<grabs patricia in a bear hug>

katvond Thu 02-Jun-11 20:24:21

That's what I had pholocodine works a treat.
Now this will sound total nuts but believe me it works. If you have any vicks rub it on your feet then put some socks on, mad I know but worked.

NorksAreMessy Thu 02-Jun-11 20:28:54

Poor Trinity...do you blame the shred..is that what caused the sickness, too much exercise?
No medicines? hang your head over a bowl of boiling water with some menthol oil / dried herbs/ vick in it
Aah, the poor Trinity, ah, the poor Trinity.
< presses cool flannel to Trinity's forehead>

Punkatheart Thu 02-Jun-11 20:30:01

I always use methol chrystals - get someone to get you some from the chemist. Put 'em in hot water and steam your nose under a towel.

Until then, accept a big aaaaaaargh poor you from me.

Punkatheart Thu 02-Jun-11 20:38:48

...the word is menthol..

PinkSchmoo Thu 02-Jun-11 20:45:07

Only person in my house who doesn't have cold is DH. Snots on my legs from DD (2.2) and boobs from DS (4weeks).
