Okay, so seriously, I can't remember ever feeling this congested. My throat doesn't hurt when I swallow, but when I try to use my voice, I sound like chain-smoking grandmother or a soft-spoken 12-year-old, depending on how recently I've coughed. I spent most of the day blowing my nose, but now it's like I can just feel two heavy weights, on the center of my chest and behind my nose, into my throat. I just started taking some Comtrex, which has gotten rid of some of my more terrible colds in the past.
Does anyone have good home remedies, or advice? It's raining and I don't want to go outside, :(
Currently, my remedies have been: Wash my sheets so that I can try to sleep better tonight, Not go to tomorrow's Liturgy meeting, Not go to Ballroom Dance if I still feel this poorly, and elevate my upper body at night with lots of pillows (even though it made me wake up a few times last night).
Any good foods, body contortions, or simple advice are welcome!

Sometimes breathing in steam helps me if I have chest congestion...so whether that's putting on a humidifier (if you're perhaps the rare college student to have one of those), breathing in the steam from a cup of tea, or just boiling some water on the stove, perhaps it'll help you too.
neti pot is just bizarre. Pooring water down your nose is not right.
Hot chocolate. With a sip of rum. Just before you go to bed. It'll get rid of those weights.
