i can feel it coming on. the scratchy throat. the chills. the slight sinus headache. i refuse to give in. besides...i had my flu shot!
just in case i need some extra help...i've stocked the fridge with juice and fresh fruit...and the cupboards with dried berries.
hot toddy. tea, lemon, honey & whiskey. it didn't cure me...but i felt better!
i didn't drink my usual 5+ cups of coffee...and instead had many cups of tea w/ lemon and lime. it not only kept the chill away...but i stayed hydrated.
i even had some red wine sangria and chocolate for dessert. :)
i went for the super salad. the leafy greens...topped with carrots, nuts and berries...with a squeeze of lime juice for my citrus. heck...i even drank some tea.
but...i'm a bit chilly...and can feel the slight bit of soreness in my throat when i swallow.
i've already called mrchazman...and he's going to pick me up some nyquil. cherry flavor please. it's what i turn to year after year to whip these germs into shape so that i can start feeling like me again.
