PostSubject: Aaaahhh = how I am feeling..   Thu Feb 11, 2010 4:03 pm

LOL, okay, well, I am going crazy, so I am just going to post it all on here!!!

First off, I am sicker than sick!! My throat is totally raw, I can't breathe through my nose, and when I blow my nose, I have air coming out of the inner corner of my right eye!! My body is so weird!

Second, note to self, DO NOT BUY ANYTHING EXPENSIVE when you own three dogs. Went to shake my bathroom rug, that we just bought like a week ago, and there's 2 stupid urine stains on it. GRRRR. I quit. Had to hand scrub it..I just hope it doesn't bleed the color from that one rug, cause then I'll have to do the other one and the toilet cover, and hope that it makes the 2 match!!

Third, I have family from VA and PA coming in 11 days. We have been remodeling the apartment, and I am trying to get everything perfect before they come!! The past 2 days I've been out of commission cause of my illness (which I've been jokingly calling my swine flu), and I can't waste any more time!! I am starting to scrub my carpet section by section with resolve, a mop, and a vaccum. Any idea how much it'd cost me to hire a maid to clean my apartment with me for a whole day?? I just need some help!! LOL I still need to groom the dogs and everything too..but I think I might just send Gizmo off to the groomers, he needs his belly shaved. On a lighter note, I got this really awesome I love my papillon pillow for my couch. =] Atleast that, and my new curtains are something to be happy about!! But it's crunch time!! 11 days to do everything is not going to be enough, especially when I'm not 100% and I'm doing it all on my own!! I guess I am just feeling overwhelmed. Help!

And obv, there are some of you who know that I'm going through some relationship problems. =\ I'm not going to type it all out on here, but I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. You younger members, avoid getting into a relationship with someone who has an alcohol problem! It is not fun! I am 20 years old, and I cannot grow and experience things people my age should be, because I am constantly worried about him, babysitting him, and keeping him out of trouble..and I need to make myself a priority!!

Anyone have any good cold remedies? I drank 1 gal of Orange Juice in a day, not to mention all the fruit, vitamin c popsicles, and soup (with heavy garlic) I've been eating. I gotta get rid of this quick, cause I gotta be able to function!! (Not to mention, I need my voice on Feb 27th!! KARAOKE!! I will be devestated if I can't sing! LOL)

Not to mention that Roxy has been humping Lily! LOL, I guess that is some comedic relief! Silly dogs! I need to update some pics of them!!

Ohhh, Steveeennn..How come I can't make my siggy work?? I've been trying, insisting I can figure it out on my own, but I still can't get it to show up!!


AND, I need to take a picture, but my sister got me (well she picked it out) this really adorable like, small statue of a sleeping dog with angel wings..and she said it was for Noodles. She's such a sweet little 8 year old. I have it with Noodle's urn right now.. I just love it..


Thanks for listening!!

Hahaha, this happens to me too! Forget that its weird, I find it extremely scary! Eyes get all watery too. Don't worry, its normal, eyes have a little drain that leads to the nose, when you blow your nose air has no where to go but through the canal.

Ya make sure that the odor is gone else you'll find more urine stains, not sure what you clean it with but here's a handy formula that I found on Dogfancy that helps get rid of urine odor (for dog's sensitive noses):

Get rid of urine spots by first locating them using a black light (use while it's dark), then marking where thry are with masking tape. Turn the lights on and treat areas with a mixture of 1/2 cup of white vinegar diluted with water (9-1 ratio) in a spray bottle. Spray and allow to sit before rubbing the affected area. Next mix 1 cup of baking soda with 2 drops of bergamot essential oil and sprinkle mixture over area and expect it to bubble. When it is dry, vaccuume thoroughly. Try this first on an inconspicous spot on the carpet just in case.

My mother learned that the hard way, dad was in and out of prison for DUI...but people can change, just gotta encourage him to do so without enabling him. Good for me that my dad's experience taught me what alcohol can do, so I've resolved never to drink Cool As for relationships... I was always too busy to get involved with that kind of stuff.lol. Can't give you any advice on that part!

Ok I've heard a whole bunch of stuff, here are two of what I use when I'm sick.

Bite into the peel of an orange, nasty I know, but I think the smell clears up your nostrils.

Also my mom always used to make us onion juice to help with raw throat and coffing. I'm going to have to get back to you on exact measurements but I know my mom used red onion, honey, water and I think garlic and you just boil it up. Sure helps but taste DISGUSTING.

Hey! Here's something I can help you with! Maybe make your day an insty bit brighter.lol. Well your problem is now fixed, you didn't check off "Have signature always attached" checked off as Yes on your preferences. I did it for you so now it should show.

Yes please do! You can post it up on the Memorial sub-forum for everyone to see!

I like Osha Root for colds and it helps immensely. The downside is that it grows in the southwest, so herbal stores or online are the only options. You can either chew the root or boil it with some sort of fruit and make a syrup to drink.

Alright got the measurements too! To big slices of red onion, 3-4 tbs of honey and probably 1-1.5 cups of water, and you just boil that up.

P.S. Your sig wasn't working with the link you used from dogforums, so I saved it and used our picture host, hope you don't mind Wink
