I'm sick...I hate being sick!  I'm such a weenie and need to get over this soon!  LOL!

I have a sore throat, cough, and stuffy nose...just your basic cold.  I am just a weenie!

I'm drinking honey tea...what else can I do?

EDIT - My throat is on FIRE!  Not so much stuffed up anymore, but my throat is SO sore and it was on fire last night!  I'm sucking on throat lozenges, and drinking coffee currently...what else can I do?

Plus the usual body aches, headache, fatigue, etc. that comes with a cold.

I always take Airbourne; it seems to knock it out of me! Hope you feel better soon :)

You can get it anywhere... like an Alkaseltzer, but with vitamins... awesome, really; comes in a small box, it's in a tube.

High doses of ascorbic acid (natural vitamin C suppliment). Take twice the RDA until your symptoms improve. And ONLY while you have symptoms. You don't want to be taking that much vitamin C for too long or on a regular basis.

For a sore throat you can melt aspirin in a small amount of water.  Drink it down and it coat and heals the throat.  Normal dosage timing, so every 4 hours or so.

In the interim hours gargle with salt water.

If it persists, it may be more than a common cold.  Usually when my throat gets that bad, it has developed into an infection.

I always have to use numbing spray on my throat when I get like that. I'm a weenie too! I can't stand a sore throat!! Also, anything cold feels good - so here's a good excuse to eat ice cream! Hope you feel better fast!!!
