The common cold has struck our entire household. I thought was just going to be a simple head cold, but I really felt crappy yesterday. I turned to an old faithful remedy, a small shot of NyQuil just to get a good night's sleep. Some in my family believed that NyQuil could actually CURE a cold... but I know better. It can however give you the night off so that you are better prepared to fight it the next day. I'm not a very good medicine taker. Most of the time the medication makes me feel worse than the illness, but I am thankful they are available when needed.
