it was hanging about for about a week
I thought I was winning

then it plummeted into a nasty one
really affects my mental health
especially as it involves some isolation at home
although I did manage to phone a friend

and I have gone to my face group
where I sat some feet away from the group
which was hopefully enough to protect them

they seem to think I could sit with them
but I decided to make the distance

now I have to cancel meeting my dear advocate tomorrow
because she is very susceptible to colds

Vitamin c tablets and wrap up warm! And soup. I'm on my second cold of the winter so far, my immune system as rubbish as ever!

Hope you get over it quickly.

Aww Zoe :hug:

Colds are horrible - they can really drag you down.

Paracetamol...lots of hot drinks...and snuggle up warm.

Sleep as much as you can - it's so healing.

Sending you a blanket of warm loves to ease those aches and pains :loveshower::loveshower::loveshower::loveshower:

Hi Zoe1,

Sorry to hear that, I wish you well.

Yes, paracetamol, hot drinks and soups, also, take if you can pu rchase, Coilloidal Silver Immune Health solution, these come in two part stengths, a lower 10 part strength, and also 30 part s trength. Unfortunately in Britain, we cannot get hold of 30, so I normally take 2 or 3 spoons.

When you are reasonably well, exercise two or three times a week, if you are able.


Hope you are better.

Aww hang in there Zoe and feel better soon. Colds are really the worse visitors. They keep you all to themselves and dont even clean up after themselves making tissues a thing.
I hope the levity helps 💐

Be really careful with colliodial silver especially with the dosage. It is easy to take too much thinking that this alternative remedy is safe however long term use and the wrong dosage can lead to serious problems such as
Argyria which although rare can turn your skin eyes nails and internal organs a blue grey colour.

Research is still ongoing in to other potential health concerns. Please speak to your doctor regarding any medicine mainstream or alternative
