    Thanks. Cough is the biggest problem. It prevents me from falling back asleep so I'm on HF at near midnight on a Friday. Hope you get over yours.

    Pooped that because I don't want to have that happen to me! But good that you're recovered.

    When I got COVID, I lived on NyQuil at night. It worked pretty well. It's by far my favorite over the counter drug. Last time I got the flu, the doctor prescribed some really hardcore **** with codeine in it to suppress my cough and help me sleep. Tried it one night - didn't work as well as NyQuil did.

    I agree. I usually purchase generic drugs when available but name brand Nyquil clearly works better than the generic copies.

    Honestly, I have decent luck with the NyQuil generics too. It just surprised me that it shut my cough down and put me to sleep better than a prescription drug with a much stronger medicine.

    I used some Zyrtec since I had that saved up from cedar season. It does a great job for allergies, and it's doing a good job now (daytime covid). Didn't work super well overnight for covid. I'll see if I can get someone to drive to CVS for NyQuil.

    Thanks for the generosity. I'm in Austin, and the Mrs. is taking care of me.

    If you can't get Nyquil (though I used to get it in Austin pretty regularly) and antihistamines seem to help, I might try Benadryl. It causes drowsiness. Zyrtec does not.

    Agreed totally on the NyQuil or generic equivalent. My second go round I had a miserable first night but got the NyQuil (actually a generic) and things got better fir me every night thereafter.

    I make sure I always have a bottle in the house just in case somebody gets a cold or flu. What stinks is that you can't get anything like that in the UK. Their over-the-counter drugs simply aren't very effective. However, if you go to the trouble of seeing a doctor and getting a prescription, they're going to prescribe something really harsh like the stuff I got with codeine. That's fine, but it simply didn't work as well for me, and it made me feel weird. The narcotic effect was overkill - made me jittery rather than sleepy.

    Agree, the one time Doc prescribed a codeine containing med I was jittery like 10 cups of coffee.

    Taylor Lorenz might be the most useless person in the media, and that's saying a lot, because the competition is immense.

    I think Taylor has been very useful to her overlords.

    He's trying to give COVID to Manchin! I told you he's a murderer.

    He's not up for reelection until '24. If this is his only screw-up, he'll probably hang on.

    I don’t think he runs. He’s done. It will be a presidential year too, which goes against him since 70% voted for Trump. Recall he barely won in a non-presidential election.

    At this point getting boosters makes you more likely to get reinfected. So hell no.

    Some of us said all along that getting the covid shot, much less "boosters", was unnecessary (stupid) for the majority of the population. Bunch of people fell for it though.

    Oh yes, the runs on toilet paper. Forgot about that. Lol. What sucked about that is that the people who were paranoid and hoarded it for no reason created a crisis that encouraged others who weren't paranoid about COVID to hoard it because the shelves were often empty.

    All right. All right.
    I will return the 250 roll package I got from Amazon
    But I am keeping the water to go along with the 30 bottles of scotch from Specs.

    When I see young healthy people still wearing masks, I wonder why they don’t wear helmets and fire suits in their cars. America is full of idiots.

    I see it daily. It makes me sad that they wear a mask to make them feel comfortable like a three year old has their favorite blankie. This safe space generation genuinely has me confused by their sensitivities.
