    I have been having issues with the snot as well. I use Zyrtec and Nasonex and those help me the best.

    Anxiety is trickier. I've been dealing with it since early childhood. Most of the time now, I rarely have issues with it, but when I do, it's horrible.

    Mucinex, if you can keep it down (makes me really nauseated), decongestants, garlic, vinegar, onion, horseradish, hot sauce.. if it makes your nose run, use/ eat it.
    Anxiety- Have you tried Cognitive Behavioral Therapy? THe version I'm doing to myself involves acknowledge the emotion, finding the base emotion (usually fear of something), acknowledging that emotion, and forcing a healthy reaction. Over time, the forced reaction becomes subconscious and dominant over the anxiety/ undesirable reaction.

    I spoke to the pharmacist at the local supermarket and got drugs. It has a decongestant and anti-histamine to stop the nose from running. I'm coughing productively, I just needed to stop dripping on everything so I can get on with my day. Yeah, I'm not into homeopathic remedies, but alternative medicine yes. The distinction is that homeopathy is not really founded on any science.

    I really hope I'm feeling better tomorrow though. Today was miserable. I had the "cold high" at work today, so I'm hoping that's the height of this and it'll start passing soon. I haven't been sick like this in ages, I forgot what it's like.

    I used the neti pot again this evening. It only kind of clears things up and my nose has to be clear enough at the start for it to work. I used tea tree oil in it with the salt mix and it burned like hell, but I saw some colored snot come out. If I can get to bed soon, it should keep me clear enough to breathe through the night.

    I really want to be in bed, but the soup is still going and I don't trust Hulky with it. I can sort it out soon and get to bed.

    Have you tried a really good steam, face over a bowl of just boiled water w/ towel over head? Using fresh sage leaves, torn up and thrown in, along w/ fresh eucalyptus zaps my congestion every time. If you can go to a florist they'll usually sell a sprig or 2 of eucalyptus for less than a dollar. I like the sticky, round-leaf kind, not the oblong leaf. Its a really good deep lung/nose decongestant.

    soup. you've made me want soup now.

    It's one of those things I saw in movies and heard about, but never worked for me. Usually when I get that congested, even the shower doesn't really help. Adding something to the water/steam would probably help though. I love the smell of eucaplyptus I've read that you can tie it to your shower head & just leave it in there. Kinda tempted.

    Eat all the soup!

    Well, my cold is definitely improved today. I forgot to bring my drugs (Claritin-D knock-off, I think) to work, just in case, but my nose isn't runny today. Today is the day of thick snot. Last night was the can't-breathe/can't-sleep part of the cold. I took Benadryl and eventually nodded off. I don't think I woke up during the night, so that's good at least! I was in bed by 10, but probably not asleep until after 11. I would have gotten to bed a little earlier, but I made Hulky work out (I kept him company and kept count for him) and then I made him come to bed with me so he wouldn't eat Oreos. He appreciated both efforts .

    BM - type 5, mid-morning. [edit] Type 5 late afternoon & evening. Backing off to 200 mg mag citrate only for tomorrow.

    I woke up feeling fairly rested, fortunately. My soup came out runny this time, but it smells great so I'm sure it will still be tasty & nutritious. I feel a bit queasy this morning so no breakfast.

    I am entering PMS week. Fingers crossed it goes well.

    Not much else to say on the primal front right now.

    My parents' cat died last night. Kishka had been very sick recently and was on the mend, but I guess she took a sudden turn for the worse yesterday. She was not quick to warm up to folks, but I remember her fondly when I was in high school. She used to like me a lot more than anybody else in the house, though that definitely changed when Fae entered the picture. After I left for school & my sister moved home, Kishka befriended my sister & they got close. She was a loyal little fighter and guarded the area around my parents' house. She survived an attack from a hawk last year and started to warm up to everyone again after Fae moved out. She was 10 yrs old earlier this year. We got her in March of 2003, at an unknown age, but she was fairly small.


    Here she is a couple of years ago w/ Sasha the dog, and my mom.

    Hulky is worrying about finding a job after school. If he wants to apply to gov't agencies, he has to go through their regular application process online as the local offices don't do recruiting. He's worried that he won't be a good candidate and he's not sure when to apply (graduating in May).

    The government is not hiring any outside people at this time. They are only hiring people who are current government employees within the local commuting area (50 mile radius). I don't think he'd even see job postings, much less have a shot at applying at this time. This hiring freeze has been in place for about 2 years now.

    He can look, but I wouldn't expect anything unless he gets in as a non-appropriated funds or working capital funds employee, which is hourly, not salary.

    The US Gov uses www.usajobs.gov now for job postings. Good luck to him, but I would recommend he try looking in the private sector.

    I guess I thought homoepathic and alternative were the same thing...
