Sick As a Dog

 I preloaded my blog on Monday, all the way to Friday.  I was feeling under the weather and getting worse.

Sick as a dog...

The phrase “sick as a dog” is credited as first being used back in 1705, probably in Europe.
In this time period, dogs were not seen as the human companions they are now. They were not given medical treatment and mostly left to live or die naturally outdoors.
They would not have ever received any type of medical treatment and because in these times we did not have such advanced medical technologies or even the same understanding of the world, human bodies and much less canine biology, humans often associated unpleasant things with dogs.
Back in these days, disease and misfortune was as easily blamed on stray dogs as it was anything else.
The term generally meant “very sick” or “physical unhappiness”

    As far as me goes...I got tested last week for the 'Rona because my wife popped positive and I popped Negative, but I started feeling like crap afterwards...It was the old style test that takes several days.  Well I haven't been hardly on the computer except to join in on Old NFO youtube session one time and that took it all out of me.  I have been running a low grade fever and headaches since Tuesday.  I spend all of my time bundled up and sleeping.  I think I tested too soon.  In case people are wondering why I haven't been commenting much on other blogs...that is why.    Go visit the people on my side bar....they are a lot better than I am.


  1. Hang in there Mr G. Lots of fluids vit D C B and zinc.

  2. I am in the process of getting over the China Flu, I agree with the note above but would add Ivermectin...It is available over the counter and I gave some to my Brother and Sister in Law (they came down with it the week before mini-me brought our fun home from school where the wife and then I came down with it. Using all of the above listed vit and Ivermectin resulted in everyone getting over the worst symptoms in two or three days (the wife took the longest at 4-5 days). The recommended dosage was 12mg to 22mg based on body weight days one, three, five and then weekly if symptoms continue. For a preventative dose 12mg once monthly. Prayers for speedy recovery.

    1. MSG Grumpy. Where is the specific information on Ivermectin? Where to purchase and safe usage?
      Thanks in advance.

    2. A five-day course of ivermectin for the treatment of COVID-19 may reduce the duration of illness...https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1201971220325066
      I have seen a lot of articles and even videos with info on this...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u21N8Vu4kOk

      As I said, we used Ivermectin in four people who came down with Covid...All four recovered quickly with the longest fever lasting 4-5 days, the other three only 1-2 days of fever. Dosage was by weight and taken on first, third and fifth days and then weekly as long as symptoms persisted. Preventative dosage was listed as once per month. Dosage we used was 12mg for 150lb, I did 20mg for my 220lb.

      Hope this helps and keep those vit going as well.

  3. That sucks, go get tested again!

  4. Purchase of Ivermectin can be done over the counter with no prescription required...for the human variety...https://www.goodrx.com/ivermectin

    Note I tried and could only find the tablet form with a several week wait.

    If you need it quicker...I purchased the vet brand inject able (but taken orally)...Worked well...I just tend to Moo at night
