Virual Values

As I sit in bed for the 2nd day in a row with a head cold I thought I could make good use of my time by helping others that may find themselves in the same place now or in the near future. Being sick is really a pain in the you know what but if your stocked up on the things you may need it makes it a little more bearable. First its important to know what is wrong with you, do you have a cold or the flu? Here are the common guidelines to help tell the difference. WebMD says: “Cold symptoms usually begin with a sore throat, which usually goes away after a day or two. Nasal symptoms, runny nose, and congestion follow, along with a cough by the fourth and fifth days. Fever is uncommon in adults, but a slight fever is possible. Children are more likely to have a fever with a cold. Flu symptoms are usually more severe than cold symptoms and come on quickly. Symptoms of swine flu and seasonal flu include sore throat, fever, headache, muscle aches and soreness, congestion, and cough. Swine flu in particular is also associated with vomiting and diarrhea.” For the full article go to WebMD, there is a ton of info on their site.

There are a few coupons available to stock up now before you have to go out while you are sick and make yourself miserable.
