Thanks for all your suggestions and help. I probably sound like a bit of a baby but in case you were wondering, I finally went to the doctor and have a sinus infection and was prescribed medication. I will also continue gargle with salt water (thanks ROOOOOOO) and have that mouthwash too that was suggested as well. I will be on the road to well being soon enough.
I am drinking Cold 911 tea with lemon which is wonderful and taking craploads of ibuprofen. This tea has peppermint and eucalyptus and is amazing. But it is still painful to swallow. I've been sick for three weeks now and it's not good for me emotionally. What about you guys? How are you? WILL I EVER STOP BEING SICK?
