    As the title suggests. What is going on?! After dad came home from hospital, last week, he caught a cold from one of the nurses there, which was a bit off to say the least. We all have gradually caught it from dad. I dosed myself up on vits/herbal tinctures and stuff to build up a bit of an immunity to it, so far it's kept it quite mild. ATM tho finding it difficult to sleep at nights, which is nasty as I have early wake-ups for work :( so I have taken to sleeping in the afternoons, but that just messed with my sleep pattern. Thinking of going back on my herbal teas again. Just to mention throats been killing me all day, so been permanently dosed up on paracetemol! :( Any other tips welcome :)

    Thanks. Yeah I usually take honey and lemon anyway, to combat the sore throats. Never tried whiskey tho, so will have to get that in. Would gin work?
