I have started my scratchy throat again. This time I am trying some chinese pills which I bought from the Chinese Medicinal Hall at the market. Well - anything is worth a try since the last bout brought on so much weight gain with the 3 types of antibiotics and Cataflam. Day 2 of chinese meds - seem to be improving. We will see. Hope that everyone stays healthy and I will definitely start scrapping again after this hiatus and hope to see all of you around.
