    Cold remedies?

    My sinuses are going haywire and I'm just an insane snot factory, so much so that it's upsetting my stomach and in the middle of the night I throw up mucus uncnontrolably. It is disgusting. I can't eat. I forced myself to eat some fruit and half of a papoosa. This only happens to me once a year if that, so because I don't get sick often I don't know what to do.

    I bought some Tylenol sinus (got yesterday), Theraflu tea (just purchased), and Zicam swabs (just purchased). I need to kill this sickness now!

    A song I listen to every morning, sung by 12 year olds
    (translation)

    Remember one year ago
    I told you I love you
    Your eyes filled with joy
    We locked the door behind us
    But now, you're with someone else
    The light in your windows is turned off
    But soon he will be heading home
    He and I will have a talk

    The snow is melting outside
    Winter surrenders to spring
    I'll be waiting for him at the door
    Don't mind that I'm small
    March snow is melting
    He'll get his share, your friend
    The light is still turned off
    Keep playing your games

    • Not creepy at allmonNom
    • not weird at all :D
      a song i sing almost every day:

    How awful is it to let a sibling know that a family member you were close to growing up (though so many years were between you) has passed away ...via text message.

    Is this the way it's done today?
    Via text message?
    Not knowing what the recipient is doing,
    HOW they are doing...
    where they are?

    It was my mom's brother who passed, I called her 2 hours after getting the message. She hasn't called me back, this was over 48 hours ago. I left a long voice message and asked if she or our family needed anything.

    • text? no
      voice message? no
      phone call or in person

    • thats how i found out about my uncle. my sister posted it on facebook. The catalyst for my breakup was my ex's sister posting her engagement on fb first....shellie
    • ... everyone was in their feelings about that, including me, who basically introduced her to her fiancé. Their excuse, they didn't want us to spoil it. ( -___-)shellie
    • I’d asked mono, he’d only sent me follow up texts. Shellie I remember you mentioning that story...notype
    • Maybe we work in this sort of communications field because it’s so innate for us. We’re bewildered when others cannot.notype

    Ugh. My "uncle" who is my 2 sisters and brother's father died from a blood clot after knee surgery. My family is a wreck. And we've been on this yoyo with my brother being confirmed, then cleared, then reconfirmed with kidney cancer. My mom sounds like shes going to break.

    Moving, waiting to hear on approvals on a new place, traveling on Saturday, and my one working exterior handle broke :'( I've had enough. I'm so fucking stressed.

    I went down to the pub last night here in Leeds to see some band play. They were called Fatchops and were great. Outside some Sikh guy was being quite contentious about his beliefs and was getting quite aggro. He wanted to buy everyone tequila and kept telling us how much money he'd spent. A proper dick yeah? After chatting to him he admitted his wife died 3 months ago and he was a mess so I chatting a bit about it and gave him a lift home. There's always a reason why people are being angry or frustrated, and sadly for this guy his life was falling apart a day at a time.

    Happy Friday guys. x

    • Definitely something that has sunk in to me lately. The only reason anyone is ever nasty or horrible is because they're in pain and have been hurt themselvesset
