words that encompass our feelings

The richness of words that encompass our feelings

We over-use many words

but some are special

    In English language words are playing crucial role. Some words are not regularly use, some we used a lot. Learning vocabulary is most important in English. @jackelliot

    I'm feeling very bunged up. I have a cold.
  • jackelliotjackelliot Posts: 904 Inactive
    @mheredge I hope that you get well
  • madhugmadhug Posts: 829 Inactive
    When we have a cold, we can't concentrate one thing. Nothing can cure cold but I know some remedies when I have a cold I will follow this.

    1. Use vaporizer
    2. Drink only warm water
    3. Eat light food
    4. Avoid Anty biotics
    5. Use nasal spray for fast relief.

    I am managing 2,3, and 4 but neither do I have a vaporizer nor a nasal spray @madhug.

    Get well soon @mheredge
  • mheredgemheredge Posts: 39,129 ✭✭✭✭
    Thanks @madhug. It's not so bad today.

    Unfortunately it is still cloudy and so I missed out on the spectacular views I was supposed to get of the Himalayas. It was most disappointing.
  • madhugmadhug Posts: 829 Inactive
    Sometimes it happens but our health is most important. Soon you get that chance to visit Himalayas.

    health by the coast

    A sea-breeze in Scotland as efficacious as the Himalayas

    It's beautiful place @jackelliot. Your poem is awesome. Are you living near that coast? If you are living near the coast you are lucky and healthy.
