A few weeks back I had that weird stomach thingy that lasted a few days. Now it's a full on head cold and I'm phlegmy and coughy and sniffly and overall exuding zero sex appeal. My job requires that I'm in and out of physician's offices and hospitals all day, so I'm sure I brought home this current illness from work. I'm one of those people that does not believe in taking cold remedies and instead I resort to all natural means of relieving cold symptoms such as hot drinks, chicken soup, and Vitamin C. My mom recommends spiking my tea with some whiskey. My grandmother recommends rubbing my chest down with the oh so aromatic Vick's Vapo-Rub. Everyone seems to have some sort of recommendation that they swear works to ward off the evil symptoms associated with the common cold.
So what steps do you take to rid yourself of being sick? Drugs? Herbs? Nasty smelling rubs? I'm open to suggestions.
