Pity me.

I've been feeling rather under the weather since Dec. 30; I felt the flu coming on that afternoon, and have been fighting it since. I still have a cold, with stuffed-up sinuses, but the flu symptoms are mostly gone. I've been taking 1000mg of Vitamin C about 3-6 times a day since the onset of symptoms, and I think the reduction in severity and duration of the illness is largely due to this.

I also tried hydrogen peroxide in my ears on the 30th and 31st, and perhaps that helped, too. ("You did WHAT?", you ask incredulously.) I put H202 in my ears with a dropper. No, it doesn't hurt at all; feels kindof nice. The method and reasoning is outlined here and here. A Google search for "hydrogen peroxide flu" will give lots more info.
