I don't recall it being particularly awful
In 1951 it was. Many deaths reported, (according to relatives) and treatment was done at home. Home remedies.
Damages resulted in many kids. In fact, they really did not know what it was most of the time.
Now, it is not a big deal.

I meant I don't recall it being that bad for me when I had it (1957 or '58 probably), but then I got colds and flus and "stomach flu" all the time as a kid, plus all the "childhood diseases".
Hope your cold gets better soon. My best friend swears by Zicam, and I've seen a lot of Freepers say it's every bit as good as the commercials say, though you might have to use it at the first sign of a cold to get its full effectiveness. I bought a bottle to keep on hand "just in case." Last time I felt a cold coming on (mine always started with an unmistakable throat tickle), I took something like 32 grams of vit C in twelve hours, and nipped it in the bud completely.
