I was really hoping to feel better by now

I've been sick since last Monday.  I've taken Dayquil every day since then. FI's mom called in a Z pack last night and I started it but I feel like my head is going to explode.  I just want to go home and turn off all the lights and sleep, but instead in sitting in an office that I swear has stock in florescent bulbs! 

I'm terrified I'm not going to be better by next weekend =(.

    Load up on zinc!  Seriously :) Eat well and hydrate.  And watch your favorite funny movies.

    You'll kick it by next weekend.  I just know it :) Don't stress about it because I think a positive attitude helps, too.

    I really wish I could stomach airborne or zinc. They both just taste so bad to me....or maybe I'm a wuss.

    ha ha I'll definitely try the airborne and OJ.  I have a shitton of it at the house from when I got sick my last semester in school lol.

    I think I'm going to take some echinacea capsules as well.  Here's to hoping both things work!

    [QUOTE]Yeah they have the "apple cider" one that wasn't too terribly bad.  I generally take the orange flavored ones<strong> like a shot</strong> though lol.

    Awesome idea...idk if I like it for the alcohol reference or because it just might work for me! lol

    Just as a warning Airborne upsets my stomach a bit.  Though I tough through it and still take it.  Hope you feel better!

    [QUOTE]The ladies speak the truth. OJ, vitamins, get enough sleep, and wash your hands religiously and I'm sure you'll be fine.  SO close!

    Don't forget fluids, fluids, and more fluids.  You'll kick it!

    Zicam works wonders if you are able to take it when you first start feeling like you are getting sick.  FI likes the theraflu drink tablets for when he's already sick.  Just keep drinking lots of water and try to get as much sleep as possible.
