In brief: Take Care of YOU

My pet peeve: people at work, with awful colds, all dopey on thera-flu and robitussin (guaifenesin).
If you have a cold, stay home. Take care of yourself! get lots of sleep. Make your partner bring you tea and orange juice and vapo-rub! don't try to run yourself ragged and medicate it away. Cold viruses are determined to run their course. You'll feel better if you take a break and let your body heal.
