  • Feel better soon! I've done the tissue thing, it's not fun. I've been known to go through 1-2 full boxes of tissues in 24 hours too. Hope you don't get it that bad.

  • Oh you poor thing! I feel so bad for you. Have you tried allergy medications to stop the runny nose? I discovered this worked better than regular cold meds a few years ago. There is a super cheap and low drowsy one called Chlor Tabs (sold at Walmart for $3/100 tablets). I love these! It doesn't make me drowsy at all but it just says so on the label that it may cause some drowsiness. Sudafed is also good for runny noses. Drink lots of orange juice and make sure you get Vitamin C somehow (Vit C drops or Emergen-C dissolvable packets). Real chicken soup also helps a lot. Let me know how it goes.

    feel better

  • Sounds like a good cold fix to me! Sorry you've got a bug.

  • I'm a firm believer in Vitamin C, Zinc & Echinacea. Orange juice & Chicken noodle soup & plenty of fluids. Tissues w/ lotion & the number to staci's Dr. in case you do actually blow an ovary- her Dr. is experienced w/ fixing broken female parts! lol :p Get better soon! :)

  • vitamin C...
    I start taking is as soon as I feel something isn't quite right. Then I make everyone around me take it too... (or if they are getting sick-we all take it)
    It doesn't keep you from getting a cold, but it makes it WAY WAY better to deal with.

  • Aw, get some rest. Colds just make you feel so rotten, they're definitely the worst.

    Answer by Ballad at 1:34 PM on Feb. 24, 2013

  • Oh, and I swear by Zicam spray. It shortens the life of a cold.

    Answer by Ballad at 1:37 PM on Feb. 24, 2013

  • I'll be trying some Allegra. It's the only one that doesn't knock me out
    I got some good orange juice,and will be picking up some soup today. I'm thinking chicken dumpling,nom nom!
