Sick for almost two weeks now!

I've been sick for almost two weeks now and I am so tired of this! It started out as a sore throat and developed into a full-on head cold. Now, I'm somewhere around day 10 or 11 and my throat is still scratchy and sore, my ears ache, and coughing and congestion are keeping me up til daylight. I'll be so glad when my insurance kicks in next month and I can actually go to the doctor when stuff like this happens!!

Sorry that you've been feeling so ill lately
That sucks that you can't go to the doctor until your health insurance kicks in
I hope you're feeling better soon!

Sorry to hear that. Tis the season to be flu'y. It's times like that when I'm glad that paying national insurance is mandatory here

Hope you get better soon

Oh, my gosh. Everywhere I go it seems people are sick. I feel bad for all of you and for them. It's just a horrible year for it. I really hope everyone gets well soon.

I think I am starting to catch whatever this virus is that everyone is getting. One of my cousins was getting sick when I saw her at a birthday party this weekend and I think I got it from her. My throat started to hurt this morning and my head is all stuffy. Yuck.

Sorry you guys aren't feeling well! It's that time of year and it seems like every year the "annual cold" gets a little worse. A lot of people at work have been sick, some of them for over a month now. Hope you guys feel better soon.

I really hope everyone is okay. Take your zinc and vitamin C and get a lot of rest. Hopefully it will pass soon! This seems to be a really bad year for it and it started early.

Thanks for all the well wishes and advice, everyone. I'm feeling a good bit better now that the earache has slacked off a bit. Jeans, I take a multi everyday but maybe I do need to buy separate supplements for immune support - extra zinc, vitamin C, B vitamins, etc. I just always wonder if taking more than 100% daily helps or if you just wind up peeing it back out, ha!

Glad you're starting to feel better! Earache's the worst cos it affects everything else too! I think if you had more than your daily requirements, you'd probably just pee it out! Have you tried echinacea? You can get it in tablets and tea and it's meant to boost your immune system!
