Oh Common Cold, How I Hate Thee

I am having an Eyore-ish kind of day (Eyore by the way is grumpy donkey friend of Winnie-the-Pooh’s).  I have a very sore throat, a runny nose, an achey tired body, and a bad attitude to the whole thing.  Every time I blow my nose, Alexa asks in a concerned voice, “You okay, mummy?”, and she says “Bless you!” when I sneeze, so I do feel cared for in my trials.

If any of you can see an upside to the situation, or know of any good remedies (have tried lemon and honey- now sick of the stuff) let me know.  And if you live somewhere far away, you can rejoice in the distance between you and my miserable self.
