Having the Fall Yuck

I have one of those lingering colds that won't DIE.

Oh yeah and I leave in 11 days.

The cold is not getting worse, I passed the crisis stage a long time ago, but I am still tired and still have "sinus issues"

Gah!

This will be the 2nd time I have been sick before my trip. For the record, I honestly think that a head cold on an airplane in actual torture. The pressure changes alone are a nightmare

Anyone have any stories to share about their pre-trip colds?


Please stop by my pre-trip Blog if you are bored. Need feedback to get my excitement back up and chase away the "I feel yucky blues"

Sorry you are feeling so crummy! What seems to work in our house is to load up on Vitamin D. It can definitely help boost your immune system. And if you aren't outside much, you may be deficient in it.

Hope you are back to normal soon!

Oh my gosh back in 07 me and DH were scheduled for a flight to OK to visit his relatives. I came down sick about 2 days prior. I had terrible body aches and coughing. I was afraid to take anything. I suffered through the whole flight. Including changing planes. I walked when I did not want to. And lets just say I left to come home the next day due to my cold but with other issues besides. Never again. I hope you get better soon. I have sinus issues year round.

If my sinuses are not clear by the time I leave for FL I will bring thermacare wraps so I can apply heat in strategic places, might help with the pain the cabin pressure causes.

I have got to stop skimming thread titles. Fall yuck, eh? I'm from Texas, where we say "y'all" a lot and you can guess what I momentarily thought your thread title was.

Have you tried doing the sinus rinse with a neti pot or something similar?

My allergies are wicked right now, and that is the only thing that really works. Its such a beautiful time of year, but boy my sinuses and throat seem to think something else.

Feel better!!

I think, if I can find it, I will be using my neti pot tonight.
I really believe that what started as a cold has become a mild sinus infection and I know my Fall allergies cannot be helping the situation much.
