Thumbs down What do you do when you start getting sick?

I haven't been sick in so long, but I woke up this morning with my sinuses feeling not right. I've already taken 4 drops of oil of oregano, but I think that it may have been too late. My sinuses hurt more and more as time passes. I cancelled my plans tonight, didn't work out today and have just been sitting around trying to rest so my body can fight this. Tommorrow I have a Christmas party to go to and it's Odie's birthday. Bad timing.

What different things do you do when you feel a cold coming on?

I usually try to get some extra rest and drink lots of OJ. If hubby finds out he will whine until I take lots of vitamin C but I prefer to just drink OJ.

I also usually do a sinus irrigation with my nettipot too if it is sinus/cold type feeling.

I hope you feel better soon Krystal and Happy birthday tomorrow to Odie give her birthday cuddles for me

Oh no, not you too! Hubby and I are both coming down with something.
AND it's Rocky & Benji's 4 year birthday tomorrow!

I use old school methods. I boiled some potato peels, put my head over the
pot, my head under a towel, and breathed in the vapors. Also doubled my water intake.


Hope you feel better!!!

Airborne, vitamin C, and zinc. Works every time.

This year in the fall, I doubled up on my vitamin C. So far so good! Not even allergies bother me!

Thank you thank you thank you! I haven't even heard of taking zinc. I'm going to venture into the snow to the health food store and see what I can find. Not feeling so hot.

LS, I didn't know that they all shared a bday!
