I have what is shaping up to be an Olympic-level cold. Stuffy head, fucked-up lungs, tiredness, crankypants, the whole works. I do not want this to happen in my body, yet I do not want to go to a doctor to have them either give me antibiotics (which I will not take, because hello, it's a virus) or have them tell me to just wait it out but please give us $200. No.
So what are your favorite remedies? I have orange juice, chicken soup, whisky, water, actual oranges, DayQuil, Sudafed, really bad movies (currently watching The Decoy Bride [again]), two dogs, and a cat. I also have a neti pot, Nasonex, and an inhaler.
What do other people do for colds?
