and there is silver in that dark, congested cloud

I have discovered Puffs with lotion and Vicks. VICKS!

*gesture helplessly* It's possibly the greatest invention in the history of mankind.

That is all.

I have childhood memories of headcolds and leaning over a basin of hot water while vicks disolved in it, fumes wafting up to be trapped within whatever scraggly towel we had handy.

I'm not sure how effective it was, but at least it gave my mother some reprieve with having me sitting there quiet with a towel over my head instead of constantly whining about how sick I was, heh.

Smells good though! :)

Yep, did that too. Good times~

Also glorious is that Afrin nose spray stuff for serious congestion. It's got a Vicks-ish vapor effect, plus it works for an insanely long while. The only problem is that they really, really mean that time limit on its usage... but in the meantime, it's great for getting enough air clearance to let you sleep.

Feel better soonest.

Puffs with lotion are the best.

Vicks? huh. I have some, somewhere. I think. I have a cold coming on, so I had best find it, yeah?

Just don't wad them up and drop them on any stainable cloth surface. They leave grease spots, and you'll care about that when you feel better, which I hope you do soon.

Otherwise, yes. What took them so long to come up with that?

And I thought lotion tissues *alone* were worth of a Nobel prize. This is...wow.

(Not actually joking.)

They *are*. I have no words for the comfort. Evne now, halfway through a box and veyr sore, they are *fantastic*

I make sure to have a box in the house all the time.

Feel better.

Offers virtual chicken soup - my mother's chicken soup, to be precise.
