I have a cold. I needed a blog post idea. Therefore, I am posting my five favorite remedies/things that make me feel better when I have a cold. Because I hate, hate, hate colds and would rather have the flu than a cold and so I do everything I can to get rid of it/pretend it doesn't exist.
1. - Tea
2. - Chocolate
Chocolate is amazing even when you aren't feeling sick, but when you are sick it's even better. And besides, dark chocolate is good for you, right? It's a good thing that I am a dark chocolate fan because I totally use colds as an excuse to indulge myself with "healthy chocolate."
3. - Netflix
I actually haven't been watching a lot lately due to late nights and very early mornings, but when I get a lazy day/evening and a cold at the same time there's nothing better adding some episode watching to go along with my tea sipping and chocolate nibbling.
4. - Fluffy Blankets
And of course while I am engaging in #1, 2 and 3 I am wrapped up in a fluffy blanket. But not just any blanket, my blue awesomely fluffy and soft and warm blanket. (Yes, this totally counts as a remedy for colds.) I always have a few days of feeling absolutely crappy and shivering with a cold, and this is a very nice and warm blanket.
5. - Medicine, Remedies, You Name It I'll Take It
And of course, there's mah drugs. I might have mentioned before that I hate colds with a bitter passion, so as soon I realize I'm sick I'm taking maximum does of Vitamin C and D and taking Sudafed or Coldcalm or Dayquil as frequently as the dosages allow. Sometimes I might even alternate between two different things so I can overlap on the time allowances a little and not die. I hate colds.
