Open Forum: Cora Asks You #2

Hey Guys & Dolls!

If you follow me on twitter you probably already know that I’m sick (I’ve been whining about it). Really, is there anything worse than a summer cold? I’ve tried numerous things to pep myself up, painting my nails, shopping, I even tried swimming on Sunday (that was a big dizzy mistake). I’m livid because the new Sugarpill Heart Breaker palette came in the mail and I can’t touch it! The other night I Googled my symptoms and was convinced I had strep throat (such a bad idea). Today I let myself succumb to the fact that I was sick and caught up on Glee & sleep.  I have a regular doctor appointment tomorrow anyway, so they’ll let me know if it’s something worse than a common cold.

Wait- I’m supposed to be asking you a question not throwing myself a pity party!

So our question today is:

“What do you do to cheer yourself up when you have a nasty cold?”

    Read a good book, annoy my boyfriend or best friend and watch favourite series. I don’t mind if you’re wining about it :D that’s what I do haha :D

    Stay in bed/couch and watch old movies (Singing in the Rain, Victor Victoria, Some like it hot), American detective series (Mentalist, Castle, Criminal Minds) and British costume dramas (Pride and Prejudice, North & South, Casanova, …) and sitcoms (Coupling, Blackadder, Jeeves and Wooster, …) .
    I’m also known for catching up on all the movies I bought during the last couple of months but haven’t seen yet. If it’s just a cold, half a jar of Haagen Dazs is wonderful too.

    I mostly whine to my hubby that “I don’t feel good!” Lots of Vicks, soft tissues, and my computer.

      I rummage through my makeup, put my fave color (pink) eyeshadow on, and throw myself a pity party! It’s just pitiful!

      • BeautyBug · September 9, 2012

        Also when I’m sick, I know it’s a bad Idea but, I love to cook. I don’t care what it is that I’m cooking as long as the smell doesn’t make me sick!

    Ugh I feel your pain, a week ago I started getting a throat ache and ever since have been suffering from the dreaded summer cold. I’ve been whining a lot too ;-) I recommend reading, preferably “light” books and watching either blockbusters or very romantic historical dramas.

    I feel your pain. I eat lots of soups. If I have a stuff nose I sometimes place a very cold rag on my nose and it gives me a relief. Hope you feel better soon

    Usually curl up on the couch and watch movies (musicals, comedies) and then drift off to sleep.

  9. ♫ Sandra (@Rockgrodan) · May 22, 2012

    I usually sleep a lot and when I have som energy left I force my boyfriend to buy ice cream and other goodies, and watch a lot of movies. And catch some blog reading.

  10. Mav · May 22, 2012 Mav

    I curl up under a blanket (yes even in the middle of summer) drink some tea and watch a marathon of one of my favorite TV shows; usually House, Firefly or NCIS.
    I hope you feel better soon!

  11. Carissa L'Orange (@Domesticladybug) · May 22, 2012 Carissa

    The couch is my best friend. I can’t physically stay in bed for too long or my legs start to hurt real bad, but the couch works wonders! Add a blanket, A/C set to sub-zero, hot tea, Netflix, and my iPad and I’m ready to brave the sniffles.

  12. Brittany CrazyHat · May 22, 2012 Brittany

    Usually I eat something warm and comforting and stay in the bed.

  13. kris · May 22, 2012 kris

    A long, hot shower with some good music playing. During the shower I very slowly and carefully breath in (and out) little bits of water through my nose. Yes, this was hard to learn! My fiance swears by the Netti Pot and I can’t do that, so the shower thing is what I do instead. I swear it helps!

  14. Lady & Olga · May 22, 2012 Lady

    Eat lots of chocolate, stay in with the cats watching girly movies :)

  15. Sarah · May 22, 2012 Sarah

    I swear by NyQuil and DayQuil, I load up on those and stay in bed watching movies or TV. I also drink lots of OJ and eat comfort food, like grilled cheese.

  16. ladylipprint · May 22, 2012 ladylipprint

  18. Julia · May 23, 2012 Julia

    I have a spa day. That always makes me feel better. I get a massage and a facial. I get my toes and finger nails done. I get my hair done. I feel far from attractive when I’m sick so a spa day always makes me feel better.

  19. Melissa · May 23, 2012 Melissa

    Eat lots of Mrs. Grass’ chicken noodle soup, sleep, and call my mom-(even though I am in my early 30′s) because she always makes everything better. :-D

  20. Maggie · May 23, 2012 Maggie

  30. keepingupwiththekelly · May 31, 2012 keepingupwiththekelly

    I also have a cold right now, it’s horrible because the weather is so nice outside here in Brighton. What I did the last couple of days is just relax, snuggle up on the couch with a good book or watch tv or a film. This is the perfect time to have a film-marathon a watch a complete season of a tv serie you love. I hope you feel better soon.

  31. Kaci · May 31, 2012 Kaci

    Typically, I catch up on my sleep mostly! You know, trying to stay away from large amounts of bright sunlight, trying to eat normal foods, etc. And as of late, I like to play with my puppy outside. Comfy clothes, lots of showers, those kinds of things. (: Lots of scrolling through Tumblr and whining, as well as scrolling through beauty blogs and videos–the usual! And Disney marathons: Lilo and Stitch, Beauty and the Beast, various Disney Princess movies… (:

  32. Laura · July 6, 2012 Laura

    I’m a nurse and my mums a nurse so I grew up in a house where we take medicine when we’re sick. My bf on the other hand does NOT lol so when he’s sick I usually go the natural route and give him massages and homemade soup and lots of hugs. Hope you’re feeling better :)

  33. CaNsU · August 7, 2012 CaNsU

    make a big pot of soup puor myself some and look through photos (were i am not sick). sometimes i simply go on facebook and write silly comments on peoples walls :D dont judge me :D

  34. Yoru · October 14, 2013 Yoru

    It may sound super lame but I tend to make during the winter a cup of Cinamon tea or during the summer (I manage to get colds then…) a cup of mint/green tea. Along with it a nice blanket, cuddly up against my man and watch some series. Sounds old fashioned but hey… Sometimes the old ways are the most comfy… To some?^^

I'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts!
