I have the worst cold of all time. It all started last weekend with a sore throat. I figured it was no big deal and took some vitamin C, but since then it has slowly progressed to an awful chest cold. I coughed so much last night that it seemed like I was coughing up blood. In addition, the coughing caused a horrible headache making it nearly impossible for me to sleep. I’ve gone through 1 1/2 boxes of Kleenex already and a full pack of nyquil. I hate being sick more than anything in the world so if anyone has an ancient family remedy or a cure-all. PLEASE enlighten me! I’m desperate people. I can’t miss work because I have tons of stories on deadline this week, so if this gets worse I’m going to be seriously miserable.
