    Sorry I'm getting really stressed over everything. So the new irk is that I have this really yellow-y runny nose and a sore throat. If this doesn't get better by next Thursday, will it affect my exam performance?

    Paracetamol, plenty of fluids, as much sleep as possible
    Not much else you can do

    Exams are still a long way off right? Shouldn't be an issue. Just make sure you take care of yourself now so you can recover soon. Water, food, rest, painkillers/ cold tablets. That's about all you can do.
    No use worrying. It will just put more strain on your body for no good reason.
    If you need to miss any school or feel unfocused in lessons talk to your teacher about what you can do to make up (like reading trough some notes).
    Good luck

    Well I hope it's long way enough but I've had colds that seemingly go on forever, that's all.

    But yes, I will try to maximise rest time.
