Coughs and sneezes #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I’ll share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Sneezing for a start! I’ve been sneezing this morning. It could be allergy, it could be dust because I’ve been decorating or it could be a cold. Whatever it is, it’s sensible to use tissues and wash my hands often and properly.

White balance

I’ve also been a bit obsessed with getting the colours in my photos right this week. I was unhappy with the photos that I took on Tuesday at our music evening in the library. The answer was to set the white balance properly. I think I can do that now by using the ‘pre’ setting and a grey card.  Fluorescent light has been a problem for some time. I think I can cope with it now!

Coughs and sneezes

Coughs and sneezes are spreading the cold and flu viruses and people will not know the difference if we get hit by the new Covid-19 virus. We must try to stop the spread of colds and flu now. I’ve already seen misinformation spread on Facebook and one post was an end-is-nigh post telling us to pray! So called cures and preventive measures include an expensive nasal spray and constantly drinking water.

Own defences

The human body has it’s own defences including producing copious amounts of mucus which we should expel from our bodies into a tissue which should then be put in a bin. Squirting viscous liquids up your nose probably won’t help and your throat is probably full of a viscous liquid that can be coughed up into a tissue. The body also produces shed loads of T-lymphocytes which attack the virus in your blood stream and in your nose, throat and lungs. That causes inflammation, which can be eased with a couple of paracetamol.  Expectorants are medicines such as Benylin that loosen all that phlegm and help you get rid of it and the virus.

Coughs and sneezes

Coughs and sneezes spread diseases was the old adage and contagion is also affecting the world’s stock markets. In fact, the government seems more worried about the economy than stopping the spread of the virus. It seems retired health workers might be called on to help the NHS cope. I thought we old uns were the most at risk. I won’t be volunteering this time. My runny nose might cause panic. I’ll just keep depositing viscous liquid into tissues and disposing of it safely and stay away from people. Isolation is my normal mode of life so I won’t notice much difference.

Out in the cold

I might go out this afternoon and maybe even take photos. I’ll try not to pass my cold onto anyone else. In fact, the cold air will probably make my nose run like a tap and get rid of some of the virus. The cold could kill or cure me!
