The Daily Struggle: Coming Down With a Cold
You know what is the worst? Getting sick. But not even sick like the flu-- I am talking about the common cold. Colds are so annoying. Colds creep up all innocently and then just wreck you for weeks. It all began with a headache. I thought I just needed more caffeine or sleep. Nonetheless, I ignored it. Then, today I woke myself up by hacking up a lung. Coughing is on the list of my least favorite things to do. I literally cough so hard I pee myself every five seconds. Like why though?
Everytime I have a cold I am just in a constant daze. Everything is foggy and hazy. Probably because I just chug DayQuil and NyQuil the entire time. I just overdo it on the meds. Having a cold just sucks so bad and no one wants to be near someone who can’t stop coughing or sneezing. Gross. That’s why I try to nip it in the bud as quickly as possible.
I have been doing a pretty good job at not getting sick, but once everyone around you gets infected, there is no hope. You can drink all the Vitamin C in the world, but that pesky cold will find a way into your immune system. I am hoping that by drinking boiling tea non-stop and taking as many Vitamin C infused things I can find, that I will be back to normal soon.
What are some great remedies for kicking a cold or preventing a cold? I know everyone loves drinking apple cider vinegar, but I am trying to get better, not puke. At this point, I will try anything, because I really do not want to be sick this weekend.
