  • Take meds and vitamin c and hope it passes quickly as we all know Mom's don't have time to be sick. I actually try ti take my vitamins and vitamin c daily so I can fight off before it attacks :) Emergen C is good too, I put it in a cup of hot water, makes it more tolerable.

  • I take a dose of nyquil, hot tea with honey, and then go sleep and sweat it out.

  • I am almost being done sick and I hurt my back all at the same time. Of course, I did not rest who has time. I couldn't even bend down OMG it still hurts.

  • Sleep it off, that's the best way for me, I have my dh, or my mom watch my dd and just sleep as much as possible

  • Suffer through it. I'm not big on taking medications, but if it does get bad enough I'll take Suedefed.
    Drinking hot soups or hot drinks helps a great deal. Also sucking on hard candies for dry throats.
