There are few things worse than having a full blown cold during the summer months. The sniffling, the aches, the sneezing and stuffy nose – all when it is 85+ degrees and with extreme humidity. This does not bode well for being able to breathe or recover quickly. I’m trying to do all of my usual tricks – tea, chicken soup, rinse and repeat. Thank goodness my office is an icebox or I really wouldn’t be able to cope.
