Time. Nothing but time. During that time, however, I will take all the decongestants and pain relievers (for headache and/or sore throat) I can get my hands on, and I may even take an antihistamine or two just in case I'm having an allergy attack instead of the common cold. I can't always tell the difference unless I get a sore throat. Then I know it's a cold. If the decongestants and pain relieves do their job, then I'll sleep. Oh, and if I do have a sore throat I'll drink some Throat Remedy Tea. I don't recall who makes it, but it does a good job if for no other reason than that hot beverages are soothing to a sore throat.
Also that cough syrup if I'm coughing myself into having a headache. But it has to be pretty severe for me to take anything and I have to have to get something done in order to see a point in it. Which as my life has been getting back on the ball that has been more often, which I suppose is a pretty good thing. :)
I kind of rolled my eyes at this question and put off answering it.
Partly because most of the Big Problems aren't so easily solved, because solving them would cause serious upheaval.
Anyway I don't want to think about that right now.
Tonight I found out that one of my worst nightmares has come true for one of my dear friends. Her son in his stroller was hit by a tractor trailer (the back wheel came up over the curb and pinned him).
He had emergency surgery and his prognosis is good. Deo gratias. But it will be a long recovery for him and he'll be in the PICU for at least two weeks. So his Christmas will be in hospital.
It may not be world peace, but I'd bring him back to health if I could.
Keep him and his family in your prayers if you would. They are wonderful, kind, and generous people.
Well, as many people have said, the world has too many problems, but the first thing I thought of is dicrimination on any grounds. I would completely destroy it.
Сейчас также наслаждаюсь зимними чудесными вечерами и ночами, гуляя со своим золотистым чау-чау. Мне приятно, что нет грязи и слякоти. Сверкающий, пушистый снег приятен и поднимает настроение, настраивает на позитив. Зима в наших широтах замечательная. Я тосковал по ней, находясь в Германии. Теперь пока я в России радуюсь такому подарку. Лыжи смазать и вперед! Жизнь прекрасна.
Всем отличного настроения!
и летит кружась белыми хлопьями, очень даже радует, особенно вечерами и если голову задрать, под городскими фонарями... узреть это зрелище....вообщем безумно красиво!А так люблю лето и осень.Зиму-нет!
No such thing as a cure for a cold, but I have some methods for coping with the symptoms.
As soon as I feel the cold coming on, I:
-Get a lot of extra sleep. I'll go to bed a couple hours early, let myself take a nap if I feel the urge . . . I figure it actually saves me time in the long run.
-Make a special effort to eat healthily. My meals are usually quite healthy anyway, but I'll often avoid junk food on top of that when I can tell I'm getting sick. Plus when I'm sick the powdery flavoring on things like Doritos, etc, just gets stuck in my throat unpleasantly anyway.
I've also tried Zicam (zinc), echinacea tablets, and swallowing raw garlic as a way of warding off a cold, but considering all colds are a little different it's hard to say what kind of a difference they actually made. If I have them around and remember I'll use them, since I figure they certainly can't hurt.
Once I have cold symptoms, I:
-Drink lots of tea (especially lemon tea) with honey. While it's hot I breathe in the steam and that helps soothe my nasal passages, too.
-Eat hot soups. Classic chicken soup is great, but I prefer spicy soups because I can actually taste them with a cold. I need to find me a good spicy chicken soup that's easy to make on low, sick energy; that would be perfect!
-Take Nyquil to help me sleep at night. I don't take any meds during the day, though, because they generally just make me feel worse. I've never found a daytime cold medicine that relieved my symptoms enough to justify the side effects, which often make me feel loopy or wired.
-Avoid dairy, mostly just because it tastes/feels gross on my throat.
-Avoid going out, because I just don't want to and it keeps other people from getting my germs.
Time flows = People die of old age/illness/cancer/starvation etc. = Suffering
Stop time =
And Ignorance is bliss, so therefore,
Stop time = Happiness all around :D
[Somewhat twisted logic, I know, I'd lived with it for so very long :P]
Seriously?! How can that not bring a smile on your face? :)
I think it's cute, and for the people who has no clue who these people are ( aka the people who have been living under a rock ) this is Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, this gif is taken from the show 'The Vampire Diaries' - which i have a major obession with -

So much this.
So many people in this world get duped because they can't read properly. So many people don't know their rights because they can't read. People don't know basic things about health because they haven't been taught such things. Etc. Etc. Reading empowers people, because they can search out the information that they need for themselves. Even if there's something you don't know, if you can read then you can look it up and learn by yourself.
Simply put: The imbalance of species.
The harmony of nature was off balanced, and it needs to be rectified.
If given ANY problem, I think this would be the root of a large quantity of problems we have today.
Hard to pick only one, so I'd just make sure no one would be left without the most essential of necessities like food, water, shelter, medical attention if they need it, education, etc. So, I suppose that'd mean I'd solve poverty.
Я тут среди зимы автостопом ездила в томск, норм вообще. Сами останавливаются, спрашивают, не боюсь ли я маньяков. Боюсь, отвечаю. Но мне плевать. Завтра день такой будет длинный и насыщенный. Пойду устраиваться на работу в театр, а вечером оник... надеюсь, все будет хорошо....
Вот уж не думала, что буду так ждать кого-то онлайн... А он, собака, не выходит. Я, наверное, занимаю слишком много его времени и пространства собой. Пусть сегодня отдыхает от меня. Завтра увидимся. Будет много эмоций, наверное, не удержусь и напрошусь в гости. А может, сам позовет... сегодня написал что не сможет ко мне прийти. Хм, не помню, чтобы мы договаривались.. снова ловлю себя на неискренности. Он тупит, раздражает этим. Он умнее юрича, по крайней мере. Я ему затем же, зачем он мне - чтобы не быть одному. Разве что я немного симпатичнее и тянет ко мне сильней.
There's probably something to this home remedy. Any hot, steaming beverage will help open clogged sinuses. The alcohol helps dry out mucous membranes, and could possibly kill germs and viruses.
Plus, with "Big Daddy's Speshul Med'cine" I get to talk like a Tennessee Williams character. Somehow that helps, too.
I already live everyday as if it were my last. Appreciate everything thats given to me everyday and live in the now.
