Feeling bleah

I've been feeling icky since this weekend. Sore throat? Check! Runny nose? Check! Sneezing? Check! Tired? Check! Congestion? Check! Headache? Check! Watery eyes? Check!

So it seems like I'm exhibiting cold symptoms. According to Mayo Clinic and WebMD anyway. Hopefully, my asthma won't get triggered. Oh, and I hope bronchitis won't kick in. Ick.

Unlike most people, my appetite doesn't take a hit when I'm not feeling well. I still eat normally, although hot soup tastes particularly great right now. I want chicken soup, but too lazy to make them myself. I've been imbibing loads of liquids - ginger tea, peppermint tea, chamomile tea, green tea, calamansi juice, even hot chocolate. I've got both my vaporizer and humidifier out.

Just want to kick this common cold's butt out of my system. I feel so tired, it's not even funny. It's not fun feeling so bleah.

oh, get well soon Cez. Drinking lots of fluids is the best cure I think. I love my calamansi juice with honey. :)

Thanks, Lene.

don't forget the zinc lozenges for the sore throat. from what I read, the zinc inhibits more viruses from attacking your cells. and it does work for me.
