I have done nothing yesterday or today. I may have to call in sick tomorrow. Any tips on getting better sooner? Who else has a cold ?

The "Common" cold? There is no such entity

Had a doozy of a chest cold last november...bowhunting in 0 degree windchill is not a good way to get rid of it. Like others have said though, fluids stay active but get your rest at night. The "pm" cold meds will help you get some sleep. Sitting in a hot shower breathing in that steam will help get things moving if your congested.

The best advice I have probably gotten from a doctor was in the early 70s when I had a cold that would not give up. He said, you need more exercise.

Since that time I have had a few sniffles that were probably allergies, never another knock you out cold. Currently, I work out about an hour a day 3 days a week. For years I used to walk 2 miles a day which seemed to work alos.

If you have a cold, stay home for a day or two so you don't give it to everybody else at work.

I have cough drops I bought in case I needed them and keep them in the freezer. It would not surprise me if they are at least 20 years old.

If I were you, I'd explore disability, buy sum bush lite and hang low for awhile.

Glad to have ya back, Higgs. You must have one of those seasonal jobs.

Grew up with a guy that became a Dcotor. His advice?

If you get a cold, get prescription medicine, and see the doctor it takes about a week to run its course.

If you get lots of rest and lots of fluids it takes about 7 days.

Gee Higgs where ya been hiding?
