As of now, I'm weak as a newborn kitten, but the fever is gone, the cough is going away and my sinuses are clearing up.

The only thing that will really help a cold or flu is plenty of rest. My self-directed remedy is two Excedrin PM (or similar) for fever and a shot of Nyquil. (Make sure you're ready to climb into bed because you'll feel woozy rather immediately.)

When you do get up, drink plenty of fluids but, mainly, sleep as much as you can.
