I am coming down with something, of course right before show time, anybody else getting fucked over with some sort of cold or flu?

What remedies are you trying or what have you tried in the past when something like this almost happened?

poor thing...I hope you feel better....!

I would suggest lots of rest, water, taking Airborne or Emergen-C (you can get either at Whole Foods or Trader Joes). If you have a cold (not the flu) you will feel better in 2 or 3 days. Do not take any antibiotics if you plan to drink...you will get even sicker being in the heat and all.

If this doesnt work, just load up on lots of Tylenol non-drowsey cold medicine and alcohol and deal with the consequences on Monday.

I don't know where you'll find something like this, but when I'm sick I drink a ginger syrup that is basically ginger, honey, and grain alcohol that someone I know makes. It works wonders. If you can find something similar, I'd recommend that. Also, go to a health food or import store and get those chewy ginger candies. GINGER.



Did I mention that I recommend ginger?

It's spicy enough that it makes your head feel clearer if you are congested.


Also, congested is a really ugly word.

That sounds like what my mom used to make whenever I got a cold except she also added some sort of root as well.

don't think about it too much, though. just think about other stuff. picture yourself well and happy and feeling great at coachella and it will happen.

I started getting sick last Thursday. Felt like total crap by Sat/Sun. Went to a doc Sun night. Strep. Antibiotics will be done Thursday. Feeling pretty good now.

This happened before Coachella '02 too. Last week I was thinking, you've got to be kidding me with this again!!!!!!

Should be good to go by Friday.

Good luck!!!!

I second this. They're cough drops that shorten the duration of your cold. Sounds bunk, but I swear they work. It helps to consume them like crack.

I had a nagging cough last year, but I think I'm good to go this year.

Any particular flavor and/or type of Cold Eaze...I went to the store and was completely overwhelmed by how many different kinds they had
