I'm taking Airborne every 3 hours, as instructed (this stuff actually tastes good and is herbal); Echinacea 3 times a day; Zicam mouth spray whenever I can stand it (it leaves a rusty-nail taste in your mouth for about 3 hours...about the length of time until you are supposed to use it again). I'm also using Afrin nasal spray. I know, I know, it's habit-forming, blah, blah, blah and I will probably get a rebound effect days from now, but I gotta breathe, right?
I'm using a humidifier in my bedroom at night. This is a catch-22, as it is as loud as an airplane and keeps me from sleeping (one of the items required for getting well).
I am motivated to NOT be sick for a week, as with every other cold I ever get.
