[Poll] Pathos  
In this house, we have been sick so often, for so long, that I have actually grown weary of writing the words "I am sick." We are personally responsible for a worldwide tissue shortage and have cornered the market on throat lozenges and self-pity.

But I notice I'm not alone. My friends list appears to be unusually unwell, too. (Not my fault, guys. You can't catch these viruses via the internets.) So. A poll. To entertain us all as we sneeze and reach for the antipyretics.

In treating a cold, the most important thing is sleep and fluids. I normally crash for about 12 hours straight when the cold is at it's peak, and then I'll spend the next week napping with all of my free time. I wasn't able to do this when I was studying, and so my colds would drag on and on. Now they're over in about ten days. I also drink a lot of tea with honey when I think I'm getting sick, to soothe my throat.
