Anyone else had what seems like a 3-week long (so far) stop-and-start-again cold? No end in sight; used to 3/4 day blusterers but this is ridiculous!

Nah it was you sneezing on my keyboard wasn't it? Actually felt so rough at times that a sound thumping would have been a relief. Glad it's not just me. Keep hoping to wake up better but mucus tsunami continues...

I had a bad cold, then a mild cold, and now I'm getting another one, so I think it may be thing you're describing. This has been over about 5 or 6 weeks though.

Try Turmeric either a capsule or a curry, it's great to stop you catching a cold, and I suspect will send one on it's way as it's strongly anti bacterial - it's protected me from the lurgy when my partner, mum etc had dreaded viral infections.

My old Dad swears by downing a whole bottle of brandy and a vindaloo all in the same evening. He says it is the best cure for a heavy cold or the flu....and he has lived to be 64 (lol)

Yeah it's grim. I'll second the curry cure comments, good stuff, been off the booze though, felt too ill for Harveys, nightmare! Slightly better today so fingers crossed for recovery, damn slow though.
