I think my 7 year old brought a bug home from school. I feel like poo. So far I've taked 2 doses of Dayquil and some benydryl. My throat is sooo sore, and my job is talking on the phone! ACK! I've gargled in salt water, listerine, I just took a vitamin and I drank a V-8 fruit/vegetable juice drink a little while ago. Any other good ways to treat a cold? I swear, I would rather be puking my guts up than have a cold. I used to get strep all the time as a kid and I wish they had just taken out my stupid tonsils! I hate a sore throat. Ugh. Sorry to rant...I just feel really terrible and everyone else in the house is asleep, so I'm ranting on Mylot. lol!

Scientists have proven that chicken soup helps a cold so eat/drink some of that! Drink ice water to hydrate yourself and reduce the swelling in your throat. I hope you feel better soon. I haven't had a cold in a long time but when I did, I couldn't believe it was the common cold making me feel so miserable!

Oh, it's been almost three days now. I'm starting to think it's the flu! My hubby is all paranoid about swine flu so he says if I'm not better by the end of the week I have to go to the doctor. Yuck! I don't think it's H1N1, but we do have a small child, so better to be safe than sorry!

From time to time I have gotten a Bad Cold and it is no Fun. I know how miserable they can be. I am also a Call taker and it seems like when your throat hurts and you cough all of the time, it can make it miserable for sure, and since I am also diabetic I have to watch my BG levels as well. But for me I find sometimes using Hot Lemon and honey does wonders for coating my throat along with a lot of sleep. Hope you're feeling better now.
