This post should come with trigger warnings for bossy/sisterly/nurse-y people like me who love to dispense advice. I hope this isn't patronizing or otherwise insulting, because obviously you've never been sick before in your life and don't have anyone to take care of you or anything.
But just remember to drink like a fish (sigh...no), cough as much as you can, work in a steam treatment, elevate your head, rock some hot toddies (hell yeah brandy), don't do fuck all, and something something smoky treats, dunno, can't remember, la la la words, nothing
And somewhere in all of that you're supposed to sleep, I guess? Ugh, being sick is hard work.
