I’ve noticed that my colds are significantly shorter than other people’s. I’m convinced it’s because there is no shortage of whining about it on my part and also the fact that I think I’ve digested every cough, cold & allergy medicine known to man within 4 hours of eachother. That’s a different remedy every 4-6 hours if you’re bad at math like me. It might also have been helped by the drinking of 3-4 water bottles every 90 minutes of my waking hours.
Look at it and decide for yourself: It started on Monday in the middle of the day. It peaked on Wednesday. It’s Friday morning, and I’m 99% cured. Just a few coughs & nose-blows here and there.
You’re welcome to follow my path for the cure to your cold, but I don’t think it will work for you. It’s customized to the specific decible levels and length of my whine, but I’m sure with a little tinkering you’ll be well on your way to a cure of your own!
