Good morning! Not really good for me, seeing as I’m absurdly sick after raving to everyone I know a few weeks ago about how healthy I am and how I never get sick.
I take it back! I do get sick! I didn’t mean to tempt some high power to prove me wrong. Since Tuesday, I’ve been sniffly, feverish, nauseous, had no appetite, have a sore throat and swollen lymph nodes, a cough, achy neck and back, and a headache. I think that covers all the symptoms.
I tried to convince myself it was just allergies or a cold, but if it walks like a duck, acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it is probably… the flu.
For amusement’s sake, I WebMD’ed my symptoms, and while it might be something minor like bronchitis, there’s a high likelihood that I have Anthrax, but only in the inhaled variety.
I’ve been doing everything homeopathically possible to get better, since I’m not big on doctors or drugs. I’ve been using:
- Sea salt rinses
- Vitamin C
- Chicken soup
- Vitamin B12 Complex
So far, it seems like my illness is moving along quicker than normal, so maybe all the healthy stuff is helping my body fight it off.
I don’t get the annual flu shot, so I’m hoping this really is the flu and that I just breeze right through it. Until then, I get to sit at home and go on Pinterest, and complain about missing the gym for 3 days straight.
At least I’ve been somewhat productive with the blog. Since I’m no longer in Gainesville, it doesn’t make sense for me to have only a Guide to Gainesville. I added a City Guides section and a Greater Orlando page for the cool new places I’ll be visiting here.
What are some homeopathic remedies that you’ve tried to help you get over an illness?
