I also gargle salt water. I also drink a lot of herbal tea. Taste nasty my family says. I've gotten use to the taste though after so many years. I used to be notorious for getting sore throats. Took me 3 trys but finally stopped smoking when my youngest was born.
WW, is trys spelled correctly or is it tries ?
@ Oriental husband & wife: Yes, it's "tries" There is no English word "trys", (but there is an Albanian one, lol). However, trys + "t" at the end = tryst which is pronounced as if the "y" is a short "i" so it sounds like trist. You know what a tryst is, right?
You used it as a noun which it "try" for singular, as in, "I took a try at it and didn't score." For the plural, it's "tries" as in "He took three tries, but finally stopped smoking." BTW CONGRATS on stopping smoking, what a tough accomplishment that can be!
And in case you get confused, "try" is also used as a verb as such:
and for past tense:
@Bignuf, LOL, I see what you meant! Yeah, stitches would have been a better call, hahaha! OK, I will answer that...depending on how badly I needed treatment, I would go to an ER, or to whomever could treat me fastest. If it was going to potentially leave a nasty scar or impair function, I'd be seeing the plastic surgeon, or whatever specialist, lol!
But for routine care, I usually try to get that from my migraine Dr. He's the only one I see regularly. I got a flu shot at the drug store a few times, though I didn't get one this year. In the past, I cheated and I still do if possible and have my dad do stuff (he's a physician), or I just try and treat it myself until it's something horrible enough I am forced to see a specialist.
I guess I avoid GPs because I self-diagnose
I really do know what's wrong with me and my father can diagnose most everything else and sends me to whomever I need to see which is usually a specialist. If I had no idea what's going on, I guess I'd then go to a GP.
Did I even help at all? I probably just confused the issue for you, lol!
