    I went to the store for some chocolate soy milk (I keep a grocery card solely for groceries, so no matter what I can eat, things that I have to make sure I have money for is rent, electric, internet, water, gas, and food) and I could afford cold meds with grocery card but as you can't buy alcohol using it i wasn't sure about cold meds and the kind i could afford on my debit card was cherry and i'd rather suffer than drink cherry flavored cold syrup. so I figure I feel slightly better than I did earlier I'm just gonna try and ride this out maybe make some tea.

    plus there's like 50 different kinds. I'm just like i want my throat to fill better and not be so stuffy.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Tea is good, and the ginger lemon I posted really does soothe a sore throat!
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Vitamin C helps fortify the immune system, it's legit.

    I do the Vitamin C thing too, and also I take some garlic. It's very unpleasant, but when I was growing up my mom always used to cut up a clove of garlic and make me swallow it in a spoonful of yogurt when I was getting sick. So it's sort of a habit. I have no idea if it works but it's better than doing nothing. I also take Coricidin HBP for the symptoms since I'm on BP meds.

    A piping hot bowl of homemade broth with lots of chopped scallions, and a mug of hot water with lots of crushed ginger roots and palm sugar.

    Vitamin C is counter-productive if the person suffers from low blood pressure! Vitamin C causes thickening of the arteries, and so an urgent large dose of C to somebody with low blood pressure is the quickest way to bring them to death, especially when they're already weak.

    I'm on day 3 of megadosing on Vitamin C (one gram every hour) at the first signs of a cold. I'm not getting that cold; the symptoms have largely disappeared (no more runny nose; no more stuffed up left sinus). Also, there are no documented deaths from Vitamin C at any dose; it's safer than water.
