Ya can't hold a Billy Bob down

Boy howdy, old Billy Bob is all well again. But before ya go get'n all excitis do'n hand stands and stuff like that, I ain't say'n I ain't still weak and clumbsy.

This sickness has broke a 15 plus year "sickless" stretch that I have been prowdly boasting the healing powers of Vitimin "C" for so long. Now I want you to think bout that for a minute. Fifteen years is a long time to not even have the "sniffles" with the extremes in tempuratures I've put this old body through.

So, let's take a quick look at this "sickness" I was struck down with. First off, there was no warnings of any kind to give me the impression I was "about to die". The first symptom started at the evening campfire. I started coughing for no apparent reason other than a little smoke. After 20 minutes I was coughing so bad I had to return to "da house" and lay my ass down. This was the start of "Dr. Billy Bob's Vitamin 'C' health cycle" (first day.....6,000 to 10,000 mg. 3,000 to 5,000 mg each day after). This is where ya bring out the big guns in the face of battle.

Through out the night I managed to cough up enough "stuff" to make the "p-flem" gods be proud. With 4,000 mg's of Vit. C in my system, I didn't have to do a damn thing. Just lay back, relax and let nature takes it's course. But.....in the mean time, my body was evacuating every little drop of water I had stored from the day before. But that's good to wash out all them nasty "flu" bug riffraff  and stuff like that.

Ok....this is gonna be too long.......First 24 hours.....lungs were clear. Second day stomach ailments cleared up, but food still not gonna happen. 3rd day, doing very well....hungry as hell. 4th an 5th days were nothing more than recoup strength days. Billy Bob is well. Thank you Vitamin "C".

  2. I had a cold pop up on me this week. I felt bad at work yesterday and came home and drank some EmergenC (1,000 mg of C) and almost immediately started feeling better. At 4am I woke up starting to feel badly again, and got up and drank some more EmergenC, and I'm back to feeling mostly ok again. I'll drink at least a couple more today just to make sure. I'm a believe in Vitamin C as well.

  3. I've taken a 1000mg tablet of Vitamin C for years, and i think I'm coming down with what you had - that terrible cough! I think I'll follow your doctorin' and double or triple up on the C.

  5. Glad to hear you're back to yourself. I take vitamin C the same way you do. Until I started using it, I was sick a couple times a year with sniffles or something. But since taking it (and boosting it when I think I might get sick) it passed me right by.
