I have nothing to say
I am sooo sick of feeling sick! I "got over" my damn cold ages ago, but the last lingering remains just won't go away. They just pool in my sinuses and the back of my throat, taunting me and irritating me, leaving me tight-chested (not like that, shut up) and totally worn out.

I keep thinking all I need is a good night's sleep, but actually I've done fairly well on that front the past couple of nights. So I don't know what I need! Perhaps a sinus vacuum? Or maybe a week on a sunny beach somewhere.

I feel like I have all of these Interesting Things to say, but my mind empties every time I open an LJ client. So I keep helplessly closing them, unfilled. When people ask me to make decisions, I just shrug helplessly. I think my brain has shut down. I'm hoping it will be coming back sometime soon.

More grumbly bits: I need to do laundry, I can't find any clothes I like to wear. I feel fat. That might not be the clothes' fault. My house is a mess.

Oh and by the way, regarding the meme-thing that's been floating around: If you have any questions for me, anything you'd like to know about me, you can ask anytime. You don't need a meme to tell you to do so.

wow...

That seems like a dig.

What, about the meme thing? No no, it's not meant to be. Just an invitation: if you have questions, ask. Anytime. I'll always answer them. That's all I'm sayin'.

Do not underestimate the power of hot chicken broth or Traditional Mediciinal's Breathe Easy tea. Hoping you are feeling more like yourself soon.

*smile* Mom-like or not, I appreciate the thought!

Oy. I sound like such a mom.

Please lemme know when you find one of those sinus vacuum things. That sounds verrah good....*snuffle*

Also, yes - hope you get back to feeling like yourself in good order :)

I don't know about vacuums, but back a few months ago I went to an otorhinolaryngologist who recommended this spray bottle thingy which does wonders.

You make a solution of baking powder and salt in distilled water, and spray it up your nose. About 6-8 ounces. It may sound gross (that's what the doctor said ;) but it really works.

Wow, that sounds really nasty. I'll have to keep it in mind as a Last Resort, but ick.... (:

Erik was telling me he does this. He has a special pot he uses for pouring the solution into his nose. It's an Indian medicine thing he got from Nancy.

He gave me one of these pots as a gift, but I am afraid, so I haven't tried it.

Ohhhh....yeah I've seen other people talking about those! It fascinates me, but it's also really freaky. I'd be afraid to actually use one also....

There is this new treatment out for colds that is supposed to take the edge off.

Its sort of super ginseng called COLD-fX up here in Canada.

Questionwise "Why don't you like to be touched?"
renniekins From: renniekins Date: November 15th, 2004 09:33 am (UTC) (Link)
I do like to be touched. I enjoy hugs, backrubs, and such with my friends.

I am not comfortable being touched... well, possessively, or sensually, by somebody who has not earned that right.

Does that answer your question?
jeffreyab From: jeffreyab Date: November 15th, 2004 10:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
Yes it does.

Next question:

How do you indicate to someone that they have earned the right?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: November 16th, 2004 09:55 am (UTC) (Link)
umm...that's a harder one to answer.
jeffreyab From: jeffreyab Date: November 15th, 2004 11:11 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hugs, check,

Backrubs, check,

what is included in "and such" foot and hand massage?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: November 16th, 2004 09:25 am (UTC) (Link)
Yep.
jeffreyab From: jeffreyab Date: November 16th, 2004 09:21 pm (UTC) (Link)
Anything else?
