    The Good Morning Thread 5th Apr 14 at 6:17 AM
    Well, we've got a goodnight thread so let's have a good morning one as well.

    Good morning everybody
    Me and the dog have had our morning constitutional and shortly I shall be venturing forth to the big Tesco to do my fortnightly shop. When I get home I've got 3 hours work related admin and paperwork to do

    The weather here is a bit nippy but at least there's no fog.

    Oh, not morning anymore

    Good Afternoon then

    It's turned out quite nice today, blue skies and sunshine, although a bit cold. Was drizzly and miserable earlier.

    Morning all!

    I am feeling loads better - back notwithstanding!

    I did not take any medication for my cold and I am pretty sure that's why it went away so quickly. The symptoms of a cold are designed to expel the virus from the body as soon as possible - so taking medication to sort the symptoms can actually prolong a cold.

    I know I sound like a right hippie but I would normally have a cold for over a week!

    I hope you are feeling a bit better Pyx! Pretty sure with a chest infection you should not try my no medication experiment!

    Unfortunately my back still really hurts - had a very uncomfortable night

    I am starting to improve, but will stay in bed again today.

    Re. Your no medication thing, actually, you are right even for chest infections.

    The vast majority of chest infections are viral, just as a cold is viral, and there isn't any medication you can take for a viral infection.

    Absolutely no point in taking antibiotics for a viral infection.

    I feel very, very strongly about the misuse of antibiotics .....ie being prescribed for chest infections that are viral etc., as that is why we are getting to the awful situation of bacterial resistance to antibiotics.
    It makes me mad, actually.

    By the way, the colour of the phlegm isn't an indication of whether the chest infection is viral or bacterial either.

    Although I think with a chest infection you do need to be a little cautious as they can turn into something very nasty quite quickly. I fully support rest and no medication but just be careful....I imagine pneumonia/pleurisy etc are fairly unpleasant things to have

    Well, I've had the pneumonia jab.
    And yes, I'm careful to monitor what my chest is doing! If I started to run a temperature, I would deffo contact the GP for advice.

    Good morning all
    Managed to squeeze in to the morning.

    Time to get of my sofa and go out for a bit of a run.
