Ah-Choo! Some Resources to Make You Feel Better

Well, cold and flu season is still here. I got proof of that over this weekend. On Thursday and Friday of last week, I battled a sore throat and over the weekend, it became a full-fledged cold. I’m not the only one trying to muddle through; my co-worker has a cold too. I keep saying, “I’m sorry,” because I believe I gave her a cold. She’s very kind and said, “Oh, this is going around everywhere.” I still believe I gave her a cold but….

Anyway, enough about things I can’t change. I decided to put together some resources on what to do about colds, flu and sinus problems.
