I am starting another cold. Feel free to read through my archives over the last four months to understand why I’m a little irritated by this news.
If I have to have one at all I’m glad it’s now, rather than next week, because the prospect of a cold going into a mission week makes me want to cry a little.
But I’d love to hear some health tips if you’ve got any. I’m aware that there is no cure for a cold. But is there anything one can do to reduce the frequency of bouts or to recover quicker?
My dear mammy has 3 solutions to any ailment: have some breakfast, get a good night’s sleep and wear a vest, but none seem to be the answer this time.
I’d always relied on the popular ‘consume a lot of vitamin C and you’ll be fine’ mantra. But I have been without visible results, and then I read this article which seems to suggest that it’s little more than an old wives tale.
So. Any suggestions?
In summary: feeling victimised by a virus.
