Oh Ruth, I'm really sorry you're so sick. The only advice I can offer is to have some chicken soup without a lot of noodles or no noodles, just maybe celery, parsley, onions. Or just drink the broth. You need to have something in your stomach that's easy to keep down. Warm tea with lemon. Be careful of the ingredients of any cold medicine you take - I'm sure you know that. Benedryl (just the antihistamine) will help the sniffles and let you sleep, too. Forget the exercise tonight. Hope you feel better.
