I feel terrible...

Post by TrueTiger » Sat 10 Feb, 2018 2:18 pm

Hi forumers,I have got this shocking cold at the moment,I know most will say go to the doctor or chemist,however I would like to know what some of you have as home remedies...Its offseason and we can discuss other topics...when I was playing footy many moons ago I got a terrible cold like now,the physio we had told me to get in the sauna and stay in for about half an hour and then have a shower,go get into the hot tub for 10 mins and then shower again followed by heaps of vicks on the back and chest...do it for 2 days in a row...it really did help...
Mum used to get a bowl of boiling hot water and put a heap of vicks in it and made me breath it in with a towel over my head,crap it was hot...but it did help...

Any of you older and younger guys have solutions....I'm sure we will get some smart arse answers but lets do it...
You may see me struggle...but you will never see me quit... :D

Sorry to hijack your thread TT because I have no remedy for what ails you but I have no other thread to place this question in. Was the "big signing" thread closed down because of serious doubts about its credibility?

A German guy I worked with said his remedy was put a tarp down so his carpet didn't get soaked, then he'd wrap himself in warm blankets and sweet it out with longnecks of warm dark beer. Then a again he was an alcoholic.

get yourself a glass of scotch and throw in
a soup-spoon full of honey. stir it until the honey dissolves.
sip it until its all gone . go to bed.
do this a couple of days and you'll feel fine after that.

Lemsip and some chicken vindaloo. NT Tigers recipe wouldn't hurt either. Might not help you get over your cold but you'd feel better about it!

It turned into a contest about who knew Pascoe the best. It's locked but should still be viewable if you want to see the final few pages.

I'm not normally one to suggest stifling rumours, but that was not a good thread.

I've always just hoped into bed and sweated it out a few Panadol.
