Can't stop shaking...

My throat is hurting. Badly. And I'm not liking it one bit.

The one thing that seems to make it feel better is hot coffee. But, man, I really need to get ahold of some decaf, because I've had enough coffee to make me feel like I'm coming out of my skin.

Holy super-caffeinated woman, Batman!

So that whole cut back on caffeine thing is going to have to wait until I die from caffeine consumption, or my throat feels better. Whichever comes first.

I know what you`re feeling. Few days ago I felt the same and asked my readers for tips and got these:

*Gargle with either brandy or whisky. Sure fire remedy. And NEVER blow your nose. Just wipe it on your sleeve, curtain, or wherever. If you blow your nose, it creates pressure in the head and also stimulates the nose to replace the mucus lining.

*Some grated ginger, lemon juice topped up with boiling water. That and regular analgesia - paracetamol is good as it helps if you have a high temperature.

*Vodka, used on the outside and on the inside! And plenty of vitamin C!

*A couple of glasses of red wine

Hope you feel better soon :)
