Hi Katherine,

I said just yesterday that it has been the Year of the Colds--even my husband got nailed, which is unusual! Yeah, it does hit the body differently when you have sclero/CTD's, so please try to rest whenever possible and let it run its course. Hope the doctor can give you something to ease the symptoms too!

Best wishes,
Elehos

Katherine,
I'm right there with you. I got hit Monday night then had to do 3 days of IVIg infusions. Thank goodness the hubby was off this week so he could drop me off and pick me up. My whole body hurts from laying around and doing NOTHING. Hope you start feeling better Darling. Drink lots and lots of tea.
Big Hugs,
Janey

Oh boy, the doctors office was closed. Guess I'll keep up with the tea & soup.
This must be a bad cold season seeing how many of you have had to deal with it too. Thanks for listening, nothing worse than a cold. I'd rather a broke toe.

I'm knocking on all the wood that I can!!! I can't' tell you the last time I had a cold. I thought all of us had a superhuman immune system! That's the reason I thought I never get sick. Maybe I'm just lucky! Well, whatever the reason, I am sending warm and healing thoughts your way. My two youngest daughters had it pretty bad over holiday, and now the hubby is loading up on Zicam.

Quick recoveries to you! xo Vee
Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

That silly cold is sitting here in my nose and head, too. Scratchy throat with the referred pain shooting in the ear. More than the usual aches and pains. I'm starting a hacky cough but trying to scare it away by acting scary.

Oh, thanks for mentioning this. It was rather fun to just let all those complaints out. I hope we all feel better in the morning!
