I woke up this morning with a sore throat, fever and chills. The last few days I've gotten a bit run down, driving back and forth between Minneapolis and Lake Superior (to Duluth, Minnesota and Ashland, Wisconsin), wrestling with the snow and outdoor temperatures hovering around zero. Looks like I'm paying for it this morning!
So today I'll be reading and commenting from bed. I don't plan to move around much, other than making occasional trips to the kitchen for hot tea or chicken soup. I feel pretty crummy.
What do you do when you come down with a severe cold or the 'flu? Does chicken soup work for you? How about gargling with warm salt water? Do any of these things really work?
Does anyone here on AR has some magical home remedies for colds & flu? If so, please contribute them ASAP!
