Yesterday the sickness peaked out I think. Sinus infection, conjunctivitis (pinkeye) in both eyes, sore throat, and a nose that was running almost as often as the kitchen faucet. Last night I got a cough, which has left me since this morning. My eyes feel much better. In case anyone was wondering, and has not experienced conjunctivitis themselves, it hurts! Both of my eyes felt like they had been bruised, and the surrounding flesh felt the same way. It hurt to close my eyes tight. I spend most of my afternoon doing nothing. My eyes were also very blurry, so I wasn't good for much anyhow. I am one for home remedies, I don't like to resort to drugs. I do realize the importance of antibiotics for severe baterial infections, but they do nothing to relieve viral infections. Due to taking antibiotics several times for tooth infections, my immune system isn't quite what it should be. I took a few garlic pills (I can't smell it myself anyhow) and a lot of vitamin C last night, and this morning I'm feeling much better. Don't know if it's just a coincidence, but I'm glad I feel better. It always inproves during the day, in the early morning hours and at night the congestion is really bad, which results in a lot of coughing and usually loss of sleep. We're leaving sometime this week to spend a week in VA, to go to a family reunion and do some concerts. I'm not sure what to expect at the family reunion, I haven't seen some of these relatives since I was nine. If I'm better it will no doubt be more pleasant, so I'm hoping (and praying!) for a quick recovery.

I am anti-Alloy. The clothing company is so despicable. Never buy anything from them. Look at their catalogue and make your own judgement. From this point on I am anti-Alloy.
