You know I've heard other people saying a warm glass of ginger ale, but I've never tried it. What does it do for you? Do you just like the way it tastes when you're sick?

For me it is warm lemonade and nice back and neck massage. That is what makes me feel better.

Aww, I love this one. I remember a time when my mom too was my comfort when I was sick. Even now when I'm sad, I call my mom just to hear her voice.

My husband picks on me for it, but that's ok. It's been my sick thing for as long as I can remember. It's a "sick sipper". If I'm sick I need a gatorade sipper cup thing. The ones with the closing twist top. That is it. It always seems to help. The gatorade is good for me, and I dont have to even wake up fully to drink. lol.

I agree with the above: Chicken noodle soup and tea, and then veggin' out in front of tv or reading a book with thick blanket.
