Well... it is official. I am sick.
For the past couple of days, I kept sneezing a lot. I just chocked it up to all the pollen in the air. And then, yesterday afternoon, my throat started to feel sore during class.
And by the time I went to bed last night I felt worse. And I woke up this morning still feeling worse.
The one thing I can say is, I'm glad I got sick right now (if I had to get sick, I mean). This is my last week of classes (+ one on Monday) and I have very little due in the next week. Plus, since I'm job hunting (but not working very much) I actually do have time to rest right now, which is nice. Also, I had an interview yesterday and the symptoms got worse IMMEDIATELY after the interview. Which I am also glad about- glad that they held off, anyway.
So anyway, I went to CVS today looking like death warmed up and bought Smart Water (water + electrolytes), Mucinex-D and some throat lozenges. I know the best cure for a cold is lots of fluids and rest- but I just wish there was something BETTER, you know? Isn't it amazing how one little cold can kick you in the arse and make you feel like a whiny five-year old?
What are your tips for recovering from a cold?
