I've got a terrible cold. I woke up with it this morning and chances are my 4 year old son gave it to me, and now my husband is starting to get a scratchy throat too. There have been moments today where I couldn't talk my throat hurt so bad. I went out and bought some Theraflu, but all day long I've been sipping herbal tea. Isn't it wonderful to get sick 2 days before Thanksgiving. Besides OTC cold medicine...is there any tricks anybody uses for colds that seems to help you feel better? I feel awful...the expression I believe is death warmed over. Also if there is every a punctuation or spelling error I miss in my posts you can thank my cats for that. I have a lap top and 3 lap cats (okay 2, one of my cats is rather aloof and doesn't often jump on laps). So they have been known to lay on my keyboard as I'm typing and block the screen at just the perfect time.
