    Now you rest, drink plenty of fluids. Orange juice would be good to help with the goop in the throat, and warm broth or chix soup might make you feel warm, sleepy. Take an decongestant so your sinuses can clear and help stop any lingering/growing infection in that area. If you have a nettie pot, it's gross but works wonderfully to clear the sinuses too.
    Here's a blankey, here's a pillow, here's your juice... rest.

    I feel your pain, I got sick yesterday. My favorite thing to help the head is sipping some nice hot tea, it soothes the throat and the heat helps thin all that nasty stuff in your head. And get plenty of rest, it really does help.

    I have no advice but a lot of sympathy. [​IMG] Colds kick my butt. I never get a little sniffles, I always get the terminator of colds, sore throat, puffy eyes, head ache and sore throats.

    I hope that you are feeling better in a few days.

    Can I join you in the hate colds department?

    I wish I could cry to someone! I have to build cages, move 30 bales of hay, feed, water, take dogs out, cook and load at least one horse....just so I can drive 100 miles to retreive my daughter so someone can finally help me.
    I have the chickens done and the grain unloaded.....hay next...need more energy!

    Does aything help you feel better? So far nothing helps me but I am sure open to suggestions!

    Are you sure it's a cold? It kind of sounds like it could be allergies too. I hate allergies, this is the perfect time for them. I've had a goopy throat and rudolph-nose for 4-5 days. I wake up every morning with swollen eyes, nose, and face.
