Feeling sick and no meds till tonight

I have been feeling sick ever since my hubby left for work today. I do not have a car to go get meds. I feel nauseous , sore throat and coughing, achy all over. I noticed we have no meds for that sort of thing bc my husband was previously sick and took it all. He will not get off work till late tonight like 9 am. I took what I could find. Such as tums, Tylenol , and some vitamins. I ate some soup and drank sprite. I do not have honey. Any suggestions on feeling better till late tonight?

  • Take Tylenol & go to bed as early as you can. The rest will do you good. Hope you feel better soon.

  • Drink/eat anything that has vitamin C in it (orange juice, lemonade, tomatoes, etc.). Avoid dairy products because they make coughing worse. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with some sugar also works wonders. Eating something spicy might help the sore throat. Chicken bouillon broth cubes mixed with water are a great quick and portable soup. It provides electrolytes and activates your immune system. A warm bath/shower will also help decongest.
