Sorry you are sick. I am miserable too with fever and this horrible cough. I am trying to sleep as much as possible. And taking advil to break the fever
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a secondís encounter with God and with eternity" -Paulo Coelho Alchemist

After my breast cancer, I hardly get sick at all. I haven't been sick in 11 years. Yup that is so!. I guess all of the drugs they put in my body during the cancer, cured my cancer and have not been sick since. Really!!! If I do get a cold, it lasts one day!!!
Making sure you get proper vitamins and nutrients help...I added everything to my counter and I am keeping close eye on things. I have a vitamin D deficiency. I was sick every day almost. ALL the time. When my doctor took the test and said my vitamin D was critically low, she put me on 2000 I.U's a day of it. Now when I get sick it is less severe and I am not sick half as bad. I guess vitamin D is major in helping your cells mature and function correctly. It also helps prevent cancers, and studies are showing links between vitamin d deficiency and Multiple Sclerosis! So make sure you are getting accurate nutrition. I also daily take a vitamin. I go for the soft gel natural multivitamins because some people can't digest the coating on things like centrum...the soft gels help it absorb more naturally. For being sick already vitamin c is good...also sleep. A LOT of sleep. If you can and you feel tired, sleep. The more sleep you get the more quick your body gets over being sick. These are things I am finding out help. Hot shower steam can help loosen up goo too, and eucalyptus oil in the bath or shower helps. At wal mart they have a cold and flu bath shower gel made from it. Hope some of this helps. It is what I use and it helps me, and the vitamin thing works more preventative.
