Default What to do when ya get a cold?

I have a nasty one, I woke up in pain last night with my throat burning, now the snot started and severe coughing and sneezing.

I'm pretty sick, I'm pissed off in general at everything. I can hear well out of my ears since my sinuses are so plugged up with stuff.


I'm trying the Zicam oral mist cold remedy and some tylonel cold caplets. I'm also probably going to drink a 1/3 bottle of robotussen cough syrup to keep my dextromethorpan dose around 100mg a day, 30mg 3 times a day.


I'm drinking 1 gallon of water per day starting this morning and drinking 1/2 of a v8 splash bottle (the big $3 one) each day. I'm eating soup and bread along with applesauce and oatmeal. no milk products.

Anything else I should do?

I'm also in bed at all times.

Echinacea pills. 2 pills, 3 times a day untill you feel better. They boost your immune system. Normally I'd be the first to say herbals are BS, but THIS WORKS.

First...I stop going to the junkyard in the freezing cold.

Then (since I'm feeling slightly coldish..) I take some medicine and go to bed...

GOOD NIGHT all.
