I’m sick of saying “Well, I’ve been ill these past couple days.”
I’m covered in proverbial tire tracks….tire tracks from the truck that ran over me last night, and today, and a week ago, and a month ago. The truck I like to call “The Evil Truck of Sickness”
The up-side is that I’ve lost about 6 lbs in the past month, between the lack of appetite, the lack of dairy, and the lack of holiday food I was able to consume, that is not surprising.
The down-side is being sick and calling in sick to work….again. I think my director and my assistant get a little twitch when they see my name pop on the caller-ID in the morning.
I’ve been using alot of home remedies lately, like chamomile tea to stop a hacking cough and downing fistfulls of supplements my doctor gave me. I have also eaten my weight in chicken broth and crackers. One of my favorite things to drink when I’m sick is a mixture of Canada Dry ginger ale and cranberry juice. I also have a blankie. Yes, a blankie. I have this chenille purple blanket that my friend gave me a few years ago that is the source of great comfort.
What are some of your home remedies and comforts when you are sick? I could use some new ones after 4 weeks of blahness. Speak up! Tell me! I have cabin fever! Help!!
