You can bulletproof your tea as well! It is quite good really. Kerrygold unsalted butter, so yummy Itellya. The reviews I have seen for the MCT indicate there is no taste or smell to it.

somethings happening to my dangus!
Usually when Gay Panda is sick, this whiny, Q-sized baby prays for the apocalypse to hurry up and get through Customs so that the world can end in a fiery cataclysm that wipes out the panda sinus blockage along with it. But with my luck, my sinus blockage would be one of the few things that survive next to Twinkies and cockroaches.
This was my first illness since eradicating grains from my diet, and it was the weirdest illness I have ever had. They invariably start with a painfully sore throat, but this one started with a sporadic dryness that was more annoying than painful, and went away quickly. They progress to full blockage of the sinuses, putting me in misery for days and snorting salt water and taking pills fruitlessly to clear them, making my whole head ache with the pounding pressure that shows no intent to leave. That never happened with this one. I had vague pain that left with treatments of salt water. There was clearly something going wrong in there, but it was tolerable. I had a general sense of malaise and little appetite, but not much of a cough ever developed. And then the illness went away. I was tempted to eat toast to see if my symptoms would suddenly worsen, but I did not dare.
Now I review my resolutions listed here just before Mr. Virus visited, and I need to start over. Supplements were taken regularly until Mr. Virus knocked and I stopped eating, which moved them down to the category of Sporadic. Media shutdown happened between 8-9 with 85% regularity. Where I truly failed was more regulated mealtimes of actual meals. Well, I’ll try again today.
What also failed was the hoped-for effect of media shutdown. I still didn’t fall asleep or stay asleep with any grace and once stayed up most of the night bored and wanting my laptop. So I stomped to the store and bought melatonin figuring I had nothing to lose but more sleep. I do not know if it is placebo effect, but the first night I took it, I passed out during MST3K: The Lost Continent and missed the end when something exciting finally happened. I did not stay asleep, but in the three times I woke up overnight, I did not stay awake for long. My brain never got in gear to start thinking, and that is highly unusual. I have now tried it for three nights with similar results.
So that is where it stands in Panda Land, and I have to start weighing again. It just didn’t seem fair to annoy myself with the scale when I wasn’t feeling that great. So I will start up again tomorrow and see what damage Mr. Virus left behind.
Has anyone else had milder colds with the change in diet? Or was this just some light fluke of a virus?
There's a running theme that when PB folk get sick, it's lighter and quicker than what everyone else would get. Allergies lighten, colds (if caught) are sniffles, flus (if caught) are a 24 hr stint. I'd wager that's what's happening in the Bamboo Forest.Blahblahblah pandacold
