For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows grace and favor and glory - honor, splendor and heavenly bliss! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

Aloha Friday! Sick Days



From An Island Life:

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.


If you'd like to participate with your own question on your own blog, head on over to An Island Life to link up and join the fun!


We're all sick at the moment with colds so I thought a good 2 part question for today would be What is your most HATED cold symptom? And what is your most trusted cold remedy?

Me? I hate it that when I have sinus pressure my brain turns into mashed potatoes and I can barely form a coherent thought. Remembering that the milk goes into the refrigerator and not the freezer becomes very challenging. My go-to cold remedy is Robitussin. I hate it, I think it tastes nasty, but it seems to do the job for me so I take it anyway.

I hate anything that has to do with my head. Head cold, headache, etc.

I hate when a cold goes right to my voice. I use a tea called throat coat....seems to help a little.

My sinuses are KILLING ME this week! As much as I hate that I think no being able to breathe through my nose is the worse!! I can take sinus pressure, pnumonia... just don't stuff me up!
I've been raving about vitamins lately... B-12 complex and Vitamin C at the first sign of a cold. Amazing results!! Hope you feel better soon!

Brooke said...

gross, but you ask for it. when snot gets trapped between your nose and your throat and you can't blow it out but you can't swallow it either.

Obstruction of the airway while trying to sleep. UUrrrggghhh.
I love those Airborne wafers

Aunt LoLo said...

Worst symptom - when the infection goes into my throat and I can't swallow. UGH.

Favorite remedy: 1 T. honey, 1 tsp. lemon juice in 8 oz. of hot water. Om nom nom. I let my daughter (2) drink as much as she wants when she's sick. It beats being dehydrated!!

I hate when my nose is so stuffed that I have to breath through my mouth when I sleep. Then I wake up and my throat is sore. I have not yet found a way to help with that.

My Aloha Friday :)

Anissa said...

I hate when my sinuses make me feel dizzy. Advil cold and sinus.

Brandi said...

hmmm...I don't know...probably stomach...anything to do with stomach I hate! I don't really have a remedy for it.

the runny nose

Stacy said...

Sorry you guys are sick. I hate the sinus pressure and fatigue. My cold remedy is Zicam. As soon as I feel the symptoms coming on, I do start it and it really does wonders for me. Saves me alot of sick days.

Jenni Jiggety said...

Coughing! Coughing makes me INSANE!

I hope you are feeling better soon!

junebug mami said...

Not being able to breathe at night with a stuffy nose.

Metholatum (no idea on the spelling there) works wonders for me!

sues2u2 said...

Coughing! I have asthma & coughing can get really annoying when I'm sick!

My inhaler is my best friend then. Oh & saline nasal solution. Love the stuff.

Hope you guys feel better quickly.

Becca said...

I hate the sore throats, but zicam seems to help me not get sick!

AudreyO said...

I hate the coughs. Sleep tends to help. For the cough only codiene will help.

A Frugal Friend said...

I hate the asthma that can happen during my colds. Love my trusty inhaler!

LYIS said...

Lets see...I HATE when you wake up in the morning and your throat is on fire because your nose has been running back there all night. IT takes at least an hour to go away, and of course that's the busiest hour of the day (wakeup, get babies, feed babies, feed toddler, change EVERYONE). Ouch.

I also hate that itchy cough you get as the cold is going away. I could ignore it all day, but as soon as I lie down for bed, it's ALL I can think about.

Sorry you've been sick!

Erin @ Closing Time said...

I hate it when I feel like I am going to sneeze constantly...seriously it is like torture.

Sudafed works best for me...helps drain out the congestion and relieves the pressure. But when my nose is "sneezy" like I mentioned above, Nasalcrom nose spray is the only thing that helps.

Christa said...

I don't like coughing at night.

I'm a big fan of the honey/lemon drink.

I hope you all get better soon!

monica said...

I hope you fill better soon. SOrry that you guys are sick. I normally take (1) benadryl right before going to bed. I also if my throat is sore then I rub vicks on my chest and on my neck.

Pamela Kramer said...

Runny nose and benadryl. That stuff is a life saver.
