@renwoman:  Best of luck with your interview!  Hopefully you’ll feel much better by the time you get there for it on Thursday.  Wishing you a speedy recovery.

Keep drinking fluids!  I am a big believer that you shoul drink as much water and tea as you can and just flush that cold out.  Sending you positive vibes!

(( HUGS )) Summer Colds suck !!

Being sick is never a nice thing, but I find it sooo much worse in the summertime, when everyone is out and about having a great time, and you are laid up being ill.

My best advice… Fluids, Vitamin C, Cough Meds (if you have a cough or sore throat), Cold Meds (so you can sleep), Rest / Sleep, and Chicken Soup

If you admit you are sick, and take a few days off to trully rest and medicate, a cold tends to go away quicker in my experience

I’m sending good vibes your way… and have my **fingers crossed** that all goes well on the Job Interview front for you later this week

@renwoman:  Lots of fluids (water and orange juice and tea with honey) and lots of sleep.  Thursday is two good sleeps away.  If your voice is scratchy suck on a cough drop before the interview but remember to toss it before going in so you’re not sucking on it during the meeting.  Use hand sanitizer before and after your meeting to prevent the spread of germs and if you sound a bit sick let them know that you are getting over something, tell them how dedicated you are to your job as evidenced by showing up, and don’t shake their hand while telling them you don’t want to get them sick if you can avoid it.  If you are feverish on Thursday then you need to call and reschedule; going in feverish is unprofessional because you are likely to infect the whole office.

Sounds exactly like what I had a few weeks ago. Try swallowing a clove of garlic like a pill. Honestly, I did that as a last resort before going to the doctor, and the next day I started feeling better than I had in a week. I did it for a couple more days until I was completely better. It’s worth a shot.

Get the non-presciption Cold-EEZE or equivlaent.  High voltage vitamin C, will make cold go away quicker.


Hugs and prayers.
