State of my Cold

About four days ago, I noticed that my throat was starting to get scratchy.  Two days ago, I had a full-fledged cold.

Monica recommended that I take a super dose of Vitamin D.  I usually take a 1,000UI dose of Vitamin D daily, but she recommended 50,000UI.

I didn't have that many, but I did take about 25,000UI or so throughout the day.  (I staggered it between two doses.)  I felt a bit better, but not full speed. And then I had to make a business trip.  I spent the trip hopped up on Dayquil, but I didn't get enough sleep for two nights in a row.  Then, Friday morning, I took another 12,000 UI or so and a couple doses of Dayquil.

And Friday evening, I took some Nyquil.

I'm saying all of this because as of yesterday, I was really almost back to 100%.  I'm still congested a little, but nothing like I was on Wednesday and Thursday and I don't have the headache and just plain yucky feeling either.

I do attribute this rather speedy recovery to the vitamin D I took.  I wish I had known about this when I felt the sore throat starting up.  I don't get colds very often, but I'm going to keep this in mind.
