The All Too Common, Common Cold
As I sit here thinking about what would be a suitable "Wellness" post for this week's blog, I am also attending to my husband's very infrequent illness. The symptoms are "common", the effects are "common" and the treatment is also "common".
.... hence the illness from which he suffers is called.. what else but..the Common Cold.
In his case there was an incubation period of 3-4 days, meaning that the cold germs were joining forces and developing a strategic plan of attack. The attack occurred surreptitiously under the cover of night, and despite the valiant efforts of the thermal system ( elevated temperature) to dissuade them, he succumbed to the army of germs! They proceeded unscrupulously to invade the rest of his body leaving no muscle or sinus passage unscathed!! Taken, unceremoniously, as a P.O.C ( prisoner of Colds!) he was given only water and tissue for comfort!
I am presently in negotiations with the Allied Forces .....aka Pharmacy... to assist in his release.
MedicineNet.com that I was unable to answer all of the questions correctly..... and I have been a Reg. Nurse for 25 years!!
I'm sure you will do better than I did, but just for fun, give it a try!!
In the meantime, take care, wash your hands and develop bastions in case the "army of germs" invades your territory!!
