    Im very sick...

    Know its off topic but people post off topic stuff in here all the time....

    Anyhow.... another cough going around the country it seems...... Last couple of days I cant even catch my breath..... coughing so much my chest is hurting an raw.

    Kept getting worse today an when I got home I felt like I had the flu....... still feel that way.

    At one pointing I was coughing an hacking so bad that I started gagging and spitting up a bunch of that crud..... Ive also coughed so much that I gave myself an absolutely splitting headache tonight.

    I couldnt even lay down for the longest time....just had to sit up in bed cause if I laid down I couldnt breathe.

    Finally was able to lay down and sleep for a while...

    I dont know what it is..... but Im sure its some kind of "bug".

    Coughed all night... did the gagging and puking thing again last night.... dont know when I managed to pass out.

    Woke up this morning and I feel like Ive been kicked in the sides......muscles aching from so much coughing I guess.

    Cant get anything to come up.....when I cough..... just pain..and burning.

    Have you looked into a hospice? Sorry corny just couldn't resist there.

    I do have one good suggestion however. 40 years ago I was using up all my sick leave where I worked due to sinus colds and occasional sore throats. Heard about taking Vit. C in large doses as a daily thing.

    2 to 3 grams a day (thousand miligrams) AnYhow that stopped it from coming back. 20 years ago got slack and stopped taking them every day and a few months later I got one of the worst summer colds ever. It lasted about 6 weeks. Kept it up and never get colds or rarely a sore throat and if I do then I mega does on C about 10 -15 grams a day and it goes away fast. Give it a try. Thank you very much

    I'm afraid that the "liberal" disease for corny is terminal. He blocked his return to being a decent all American good old boy by all the dope, hash and LSD he took in his younger days unfortunately. Thank you, thank you very much

    Sorry to hear that corny. Hop you get better soon.


    I have my own health problems. Had an allergic reaction to our new fire rated uniforms, got so bad that it is even with me wearing normal clothes. Feels like cross between sunburn and a carpet burn. Work will not accommodate me in wearing my old uniforms so I am off work. Been spending most of my time documenting this (started in February, many meetings with management) and researching probable causes. They are trying to set it up so if I can not wear the new uniform I am out on the street. You would think a hospital would be more caring.

    I would see if there were alternative uniforms you could wear. Fire retardant but with a different chemical retardant in them. Surely there is more than one chemical used for this.

    Tried that, went to a nomex material that was better. But by this time my skin is (naughty word here) and even wearing normal clothes is painful. On my last day I was wearing the nomex pants and a t-shirt with my old uniform shirt on top. I had the nomex shirt in my tool bag and took it everywhere I went in case I had to go into an electrical panel, actually had to go into one that day. Took me less than a minute to take off the one shirt and put on the other. Still not good enough for them. They are worried I may decide not to change shirts when I need to. In the mean while they do not care if I have face/eyes, hand, or ear protection. But my body is protected to HRC 2.
