So you have stuffed nose right?
Great! You can always try blowing your nose for next 15min and that help a little but... Dont blow too much, because nasal decongestants weaken your blood vessels in the nose and you will get blood coming from your nose!
So you have flu and you are trying to eat propely? Nope! Not only you wont have any appetite, you will feel naseous.
So why are we not going to doctor again? Oh, right because we love PCM and we are engineers full of hacks
>> So why are we not going to doctor again?
Unless you are dying, going to the doctor for flu symtoms is a waste of everyone's time.
To my shock, a fair numbers of devs around the office go the doc to get antibiotics.
Dev: "Oh, I'm starting to feel bad. I think I'm getting the flu, time to go to my doctor for some antibiotics"
Me: "Why? If my doctor prescribed me antibiotics for the flu, I'd be tempted to punch him in the face"
Dev: "Wha!..what?..Whenever I get the flue, my doctor has always given me antibotics. About a week or so, I'm cured"
Me: "Say that out loud...again"
Dev:"Um...oh...I would have felt better in a week anyway?"
Me: "Yea, there is no cure for the flu. "
<other devs pop their heads over the cube walls>
"Really, my doctor gives me the Z-pack for the flu"
"Yea mine too"
"Mine gives me amoxicillin"
PCM is fairly advanced drug...
nah it is old, not as old as aspiryn but still. Also the molecural structure is very simple.
I had to take ~7 PCM through 3 days and that flu is still not passing...
I hope it dosent last full 7 days cuz i have egzams to pass!
But knowing my luck, if not flu, my depression is going to fuck me with those egzams...
tits-r-us46410dBenadryl always works for me when it comes to clogged nose but then again, I have nasal allergy. After a few minutes, you feel your nostrils opening up to sweet sweet air and you can breath again. It will make you sleepy though.
As for the flu, I rarely take any medicine. I just stay home and get a good long sleep.
