I am aware that if someone actually had a cure the they would be a millionaire, however, i am dying of manflu suffering with a bad cold, as is DH, DD and now looks like DS is getting it. We are off to centreparcs on monday so will try almost anything to get rid of colds by then.

Please help!

paracetamol and ibuprofen for the symptoms. hot sweet tea, toast, sleep.

poor you, i hope it gets better by then, you have 3 days, so i am sure you'll see an improvement. x

Echinacea, vitamin C and zinc lozenges, gallons of fresh orange juice!

Hope you feel better soon.

don't panic, your body needs to save energy.

you can help the symptoms, but you need to not overload yourself. think positive!
