    Chicken soup with lots of onion and garlic, peppermint tea, or lemon, honey and bourbon mixed together and warmed with or without the lemon and honey! Hugs to you and yours! Hang in there- it can't last forever- it just feels like it. All four of us did this over Christmas week :(

    Oh I feel for ya - thankfully, I've been healthy this holiday season. It's something I get every few months, and I go thru kleenex, underwear, pads, and cough medicine faster than a nursing home!

    Poor dear! :cry:
    I can so relate. Arrived in Colorado on Dec. 19th to find DD pretty sick with the upper respiratory crud. I made it til Christmas day when I finally succumbed, too. Praying for enough ear canal decongestion to be able to fly home on Saturday without pain. Can relate to coughing up a lung, using a box of Puffs a day, numb tongue and mouth from the Cepacol lozenges, having to make a list/schedule for taking all the meds she's brought me, sore abs from the coughing crunches, sleeping in hour-only snatches due to the drainage. It's truly the pits.............not the way I hoped to spend my special holiday. :thumbdown:

    This is a bad year for the creeping crud! Have poured gallons of hot tea with honey and lemon down both sons and husband. I'll have to mention the bourbon to them...I'm quite sure that will be better than the tea.
    A small pillow held to your chest as you are coughing will help with the sore ribs.

    I have used almost a whole bottle of vicks! I keep reading about people eating the stuff and I'm about that desperate. I do feel better than yesterday though so I'm trying to be hopeful. I just have NO energy, tons of congestion, watery eyes, sneezes that would power a sailboat, and coughing.

    Vicks on the feet works really well...and if you don't have any problem with salt...take 1/4 tsp of baking soda and mix it into a 1/2 cup water. Drink it...It is instant relief from all symptoms. You can do this 3 to 4 times a day...and it works wonders

    When I was a kid my mom used to put a large pan of water on the stove with a couple tablespoons of Vicks in it, bring it to a boil, turn off the burner, then have us put our faces in the steam with a towel over our heads. I positively hated it but it really helped to clean the crud out of our noses/sinuses. Just a thought. I really hope you feel better soon.
