    Drink some hot tea with a little honey in it. And have some chicken soup! Take care of yourself before it turns into a full blown thing. And rest too! Hope you feel better for tomorrow~

    Same thing happened to me on Sunday. Dose up on Vitamin C and liquids, stay warm and get lots of rest. I was largely over the cold by yesterday. As a kid, colds used to always last 7-10 days but as an adult, I find a day or two of feeling lousy is as bad as it usually gets. I don't really understand why, since I always thought a virus was a virus and it just had to play its way out, but I'm not complaining.

    Quote:Add some lemon to the tea, good ole' fashioned homeade chix noodle soup (not the processed stuff in a can) and I agree with vitc . There is something they sell otc called emergen c. It's supposed to really knock out a cold. Hope you feel better. [​IMG]

    That's so sad about your friend.
    Been fighting a cold since Saturday, Theraflu with extra lemon juice in it seemed to help me the most.
