Good stuff Shellycat. Interestly enough, I'm a real whimp when it comes to colds and flus and find I really like juices and herbal teas, etc. much better than water. I'm already hurting so much, I just can't hack the water although many suggest it's the way to go. I like the way good, cool, juice feels on my throat and it seems to make my whole body feel better.
And I usually find that a day or two resolves the things that without rest and the juice would probably nail me for a week.
