I never can remember this so I found this helpful little chart here to figure out that thankfully I only have a cold and not the flu. Achoo! At least for now… Can we cure the common cold already? 🙂

Bring on the tea, honey, ginger ale and chicken soup.

Remember, you can really only treat the symptoms and any " remedy" is meant for helping with coping and building up your immune system. Sleep and a lot of fluids does wonders for the flu!

influenza = flu
retrovirus = cold
different viruses both mutate incessantly and are a major pain in the ass.
especially if you have young kids who keep bringing home what their classmates share so readily.

Very good your comment. There is much confusion between flu and cold in every corner of this world.

+Amanda Blain I took a food safety class instructed by the CDC and they informed the class that over 70% of the time you have Flu symptoms it’s actually a food borne illness, especially if you eat out a lot.

Fighting off a cold currently.
It's always interesting how many people mistake nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea for "stomach flu", when it's usually food poisoning.
