After the adrenalin rush ....


...I am down with a bad cold.

Yes, after all those travelling and chess tournaments, when I am free from all the stress and hectic days, I am down. Looks like my body cannot take down time. It happens every time. Just when I thought I would have time on my hands to do some shopping, maybe a visit to the spa, and have some "ME" time, my body decides to play tricks on my. My throat is sore, my head is heavy and my nose drips like a leaky faucet.

There goes all my plans for christmas shopping too! Tried the panadol remedy for colds and flus but it is not working. Tried sleeping it off, but it is not working either. Doesnt help when you have bored kids at home irritating each other every 10 minutes - sure doesnt help my throat at all!!

Hmmm, maybe I will try traditional chinese medicine (TCM). Hope it works! Anyone has suggestions on what will work?

Please take care and get well really soon! Drink lots of water, and try honey with lemona as a fellow blogger suggested to me before. I didn't have lemon, so substituted it with lime -- the honey's soothing, and the lemon or lime is for the Vit C!

I am one of those that like to self-prescribe. Dont like to visit the docs as I hate them prescribing anti-biotics. Yes, i usually go with Clarinase, but am out of it!! Went to the chinese medical hall, and the guy recommended antelope horn (leng yang) - had a bottle of it, and am feeling a bit better - but am getting shiverish.
