Would you feel like that if you had asthma? Or diabetes? What about allergies?

Many things, especially meditation and spirituality, can make a difference where illness is concerened—in the frequency of outbreaks or occurrences, but especially in the whole mental outlook on life. But some illnesses need treatment with medicine. It's not as if severe depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive/compulsive disorder, etc. are colds, in that you can simply relieve the bad symptoms for awhile if you feel like it, or you can remain strong until the illness passes.

You shouldn't be so hard on yourself. It's great to take a med vacation, but don't give yourself so many expectations you may not be able to live up. You probably have more than a cold.

My best advice would be to use spirituality in conjunction with the meds you need.
