The Back to School Cold:(
As I sit here at 5:53 Am. I cant breathe. My nose is stuffy and my throat hurts. This is the signs.. of the back to school cold LOL.

Everyone maybe knows what I'm talking about that is IF you went to school. This is when I wish I was homeschooled.

Every beginning of the school year the WHOLE school breaks out in this stupid cold. GRRR! I thought it skipped me.. as both my parents got sick from me.. and I was feeling fine.. UNTIL this morning/late last night.

Anyone got any good remedies for achy throat, stuffy nose and just the cold feeling of ughh.. I need some lol.. I've got school. Im staying home sick today..

Which could be a good thing.. I can catch up on some homework and stuff..

I have it to and being homeschooled doesn't help if you have a teacher like my mom. :D I take wellness fizz we buy it from the natural grocers it seems to help. I stay pretty active and still go and ride. Funny thing is if I don't then my cold sticks around longer. hope you guys feel better soon

Hot pepermint tea is amazing for sore throats and stuffy noses. Also vicks vapor rub on a washcloth or hand towel put it on your chest and that helps thw stuffy nose as well.

I got the cold lost my voice for a week and all that and might have another form of it bout to hit again unfortunately.

Echinaea( sp?) Is a good vitamin to take to strengthen and even helps me get over colds quicker.
