I feel like s*it.

Recommended Posts

I got a cold recently and I thought I was doing better, but since I started going to the summer university in my town, I wake up early every day, I yawn all day long, I can't eat properly, I can't "go to the bathroom" properly, I always feel tired and I can't stand for too long. I even threw up a night before. I probably have to rest and lie in bed all day in order to get rid of the cold, but I have stuff to do + I'd rather die then lie in bed all day long. I drink vitamins and some other s*it, but it's not boosting my energy very much. I need something to boost my energy, what do you guys think I should do/take?

I got a cold when I lived in Denver for school and the doctor told me all I could do was take decongestant medicine, pain pills, and wait it out. I also had my cold during finals so I didn't have time to sit around and lay in bed. It took me awhile to get over it.

Mucinex and vitamin C, b6, and b12 chewables usually help me out. But you definitely have to find time to get sleep too. Your body won't heal as quickly or efficient without it. You don't have to sleep all day but 8-9 hours is a good range. Eating more fiber and veggies will help with your using the bathroom problems. Broccoli is good for it. I would go see a doctor if it's been longer than 2 weeks. They usually give you stuff stronger than over the counter things that knock it out quicker.

I honestly use advocare spark for energy but I'm a huge advocare fan. Just can get pricey. But honestly it just seems like u need more sleep. I know I used get that way during the work week so I try to get at least 8-9 hours now. You will be surprised how just that little change can work wonders.

theres alot to say....but first can you afford to see a doc? like do you have health insurance?

 

if you are constantly tired that may be a sign of a sleeping disorder, and I highly suggest you check it out if so.

 

Also I work out and use pre-workout booster powder mixes (like no-xplode is probably the most popular)...some of it is very high in caffeine, and using it as an energy drink you will develop a tolerance. Read reviews, go to health shops, etc and find out which supplement could possibly be right for you. But read the labels carefully, if you have heart conditions, high blood pressure etc

 

also...this is just a suggestion, so be careful

I'm not sure what to take as I usually just take cold medicine when I get sick, drink plenty of water, healthy food, soup, get plenty of sleep etc. I hope you're feeling better though :hug:

I don't know what kind of medicine you could take, cuz I live in Mexico and you can find a lot of pills here to help you to get rid fo the cold, but I don't think those are legal in any other country :orangu:

But, I hope you get better soon :hug:

i never take any medicine when i get a cold. and i am like u  ,  i hate staying in bed. but i guess u could just take things easily. like dont b hard on urself. if u dont wanna sleep, at least lie in bed and study etc. drink lots of fluids, and eat chicken soup ;) and try not to stress out. ur body is already under a lot of stress so go a little easy with the studying. try to give ur body a break
