I hate being sick

Being sick is so tiring. I've been sick for the past few days, and very little seems to be helping. It could be a cold? The flu? Bronchitis? I went to urgent care today to get some medicine, and they sent me home with antibiotics ... that I can't take for a few days, in case it's viral bronchitis rather than bacterial. The viral will "go away" on it's own, and the bacterial will linger for a while, therefore necessitating antibiotics.


I've been dosing myself with serious amounts of chicken noodle soup and orange juice and 7-Up, my favorite non-medicinal cold remedies.

Any of you lovelies have a remedy that I should try?


  1. Best advise is to take it easy and get lots of rest. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Awww, poor Mandy. I hope you feel better really soon. Being sick is the pits, and just as Brandi stated above, lots and lots of rest. Get well!

  3. o man im sorry Mandy. I hope that remedy isn't an all in one!!

    Usually when I have a cold or fever i drink cayenne pepper shots with warm water, or add lemon and local honey to it. but if you have bronchitis thats not going to work, and i know that because i currently have bronchitis and pneumonia (dont worry, over it and going back to work tomorrow ;) These ladies are right, just take lots of rest and watch lots of doctor who (thats what ive been doing at least) feel better!

  4. I spent 5 hours waiting in the ER yesterday to find out that I have a throat infection.
    I feel for you! Hope you get better soon!

  5. Ugh, guys! I hope you're both on the up-and-up soon, too! <3
