oh what a relief it is.

So, what gives you relief from ______?



currently, I have been sufering from allergies but, throw a cold onto the pile. I have been eating/drinking Alka Seltzer cold medicine. Oh, and when I need to remind myself I'm alive, a couple of whippits does the trick, along with a sharp object in the eye...

I think a red hot poker up the nostrils would give me some relief from this fucking congestion...

Maybe try rinsing your nose with a Neti Pot. I have one...haven't used it in a while. But it is supposed to help flush iritants from your nasal passages. I thought it helped. www.thenetipot.com
My backup solutions are Alka Seltzer cold/allergy fizzy tabs (orange flavored) or something with an antihistamin in it.

Better remember your playadust mask! I've been told that I have a larger-than-normal lung capacity, and I STILL end up coughing for a month after the playa.....If you're prone to congestion, be sure to keep at least a bandanna around for during dustups!

I just bought a Respro Sportsta with extra filters. I haven't received it yet. I plan on wearing it more then just to BM though....maybe when the trees around here start putting out pollen, which is nasty!

I found two things that work for congestion.

1) Take a long HOT shower. Steam will loosen up a bunch of the crud that's built up.

2) Spicy food. You know how when you eat something reeeeally hot, it makes your eyes water and nose run? Yeah. Go just beat the hell out of your mucous membranes.

Neither of these is anything like an actual *cure* mind you, but they can provide some temporary relief.

yep, pikey, been eating lots of spicy to aid the body in turning up the temp thus, hopefully, burning out what is bad. Unfortunately, the only thing burnin is my ass.

This fukin illness does not want to easily let go, dammit! I will kick it's ass though, or, I'll be dead, which is kinda like kickin it's ass, it would have no live host to fuck with. Well, that is until the fukin necrophiliac love kicked in...

A *leetle* TMI.

And the necrophilia thing ain't a pleasant image neither. (Go for cremation!)
