Feeling sick -_-

There's this cold going around and it finally made my way to me today. I feel so terrible.

Any tips for feeling better? I know I should be resting but it's so hard to sleep with a runny nose.

Drink plenty of liquids (that helps to flush out the virus causing your cold), plenty of rest, and lots of vitamin C aka orange juice and heck, a plain old orange would also work.

Other than that, there isn't much else to do then to wait and hope you'll feel better soon.

my mother always said you aren't sick until TheraFlu tastes good.

I find hot tea always helps me feel better. :) It does have antibacterial properties, though I am not sure about anti-viral. The antioxidants will help keep your body running smoothly, though, so you can fight the cold a bit better.

Rest, lots of fluids, and vitamin C are all good.

Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

I agree with the hot tea. Tea is soothing on a scratchy, sore throat.

I'm just starting to get over that cold which has put me in a crappy mood all weekend.

Spicy foods like salsa helped me breathe plus Day/Nyquil and Hall's drops. Standing with my head under a hot shower helps me a lot, as hot as I can stand it. Hot or cold vaporizers are great along with a little Vicks VapOrub under your nose or on your throat. Chicken soup with garlic and extra chicken fat is a proven cold fighter.

If you are of age, booze
