Sick of Being Sick

Topic: Uncategorized| 2 Comments »

I am real fed up. I just cant get rid off my sore throat. I have not been able to talk for 3 days now and I cant sleep at night because the coughing wakes me up.
I have had so much chicken soup I think I am going to start growing feathers any second. I gargle salt water. I drink hot cider. I inhaled hot garlic potion (the fruits of David’s internet voodoo research). Today I juiced and drank 8 pounds of oranges.
Still I am absolutely exhausted and sick. I get 2 hours of productivity a day and then I lie on the couch for the rest of the day with barely enough energy to make it to the bathroom once an hour.

Ugh. Life without pills is tricky.

    Because you want weird unsolicited advice for how to kick a cough (what? You don’t? Psssh, whatever) I will pass on this tidbit: sautee an onion until it’s hot, wrap it in a dishcloth, put it on your chest. Upside: your cough is soothed and starts to go away in embarrassingly short amounts of time. Downside: you smell kind of like a burger.

    Pregnancy=weak immune system. It really stinks that you’re sick. I will channel healthy thoughts your way.
    P.S. I’m going to have to check with LJ about that onion thing. It sounds kind of crazy…just crazy enough to work?
