My favorite cold remedies.

I really hardly ever get sick. I just sifted through my archives, and the last time I came down with something (bad enough to be blogged about) was January of 2011. The time before that? October of 2010.

That’ll do, immune system. That’ll do.

So I guess I shouldn’t complain too much about the fact that my nasal region has turned into a cesspool of mucus production in the last couple of days.

But guess what? I’m going to complain. And you want to know why?

BECAUSE I’M GOING TO ICELAND ON THURSDAY AND I’LL BE DAMNED IF I LET A COLD KEEP ME DOWN.

Fortunately, a side effect to having a fairly robust immune system is that I’m generally not sick for very long. And I have enough vitamins coursing through my system to give even the toughest bacteria a run for its money, so here’s hoping the next three days are packed with good health.

My “get better” concoction consists of a B-complex and D vitamin daily, along with at least two Emergen-C (knock-off) packets and 3-4 Zycam (zinc) meltaways every day. Like I said, lots o’ vitamins.

Plus I slept about 12-13 hours Thursday night (stayed home from work on Friday), and about 10 hours on both Friday and Saturday nights. My body has no excuses for not beating this thing.

THURSDAY. I LEAVE ON THURSDAY.

In almost every other way, though, I’m very ready to go. I just need to pick up some boot socks today and pack on Wednesday. That’s it! Obviously, I’m super excited.

So if you need me, I’ll just be sitting here thinking healthy thoughts.

Anyone else have any cold-busting remedies to share?
