Nah - this particular batch of Snot started on Friday night/Saturday. I got out of bed somewhere around 3.45pm on Saturday afternoon, because I was just so snotty and miserable.

Thank you for the observation about the zinc! I'd noticed it in there, but hadn't explicitly thought about quantities or method of binding... hrm. When I last tried zinc it was cheap nasty chewable zinc from Boots because it was all I could afford. But lots of things are improved by chelation - and it's even a treatment for heavy metal poisoning! The non-constipating Solgar iron supplement, Gentle Iron, is chelated, and as far as I know it's the only iron supplement in existence that doesn't completely screw up the digestive system. I also do get on very much better with natural source or nature-identical vitamins & minerals than I do with purely synthetic ones, godknows why, except my body is overly fussy.

So I'll go to the health food shop in the morning and see what Solgar or Viridian do in the way of chelated zinc. This supplement exists but may well cost a small fortune. If it does, I'll try one of the others.

You're good for my health, my love :)
