I know colds can be absolutely miserable, especially when you have little ones depending on you! I'm sorry you got caught.

But keep in mind that those very symptoms that make you feel so horrible are actually doing a job against the germs. Knock out the symptoms--and you knock out your body's best defense against the germs. It will take LONGER to get over the stupid cold, and you will be MORE likely to get another one.

Let your body fight the way it knows how!

In the meantime, you can help by drinking as much hot liquids as you can comfortably manage (I like hot chicken broth with lots of onion and garlic--pee-U!--, hot lemonade, and hot licorice tea), stay away from dairy if you aren't already, and pee those germs down the toilet!

You also might have some kind of environmental factor that might be making your symptoms worse, such as mold, dust mites, cigarette smoke from the neighbors next door, etc. I have heard that room air purifiers can help that, but have no experience myself.

Hope you feel better soon!
