The sky is too blue, the sun is too bright, the birds are too loud, the air that moves around my body makes my joints ache and my head spin.
I have been drinking lots of water, eating apples and oranges, jam and toast. I don't feel like eating anything else right now. I have been taking panadol for headaches, and was advised that eucalyptus oil rubbed into the soles of my feet before I go to bed will help settle the coughing fits. I did this last night, and you know, I reckon it works. Either that or it's a subconscious 'thing', which is also ok seeing as I didn't have any coughing fits last night.
The fact that I have nursed my three boys for the last 2.5 weeks with it and up through the night with them, probably 100% percent guarantees my getting infected as well. Don't even go there with school kids and preschool kids snotty noses and *a-tishooo*ing all over the place.
I am feeling rather *ugg* and a little bit *bleugh* in between *iewww* and *yuck*. Please forgive me for hibernating the next few days until this lurgy of the utmost dreaded, passes us by.
Do you have any remedies or tricks to speed up recovery - the more natural the better. You know, things like, housework faeries, kitchen gnomes, laundry goblins, and homework wizards.
p.s. I do like honey but not in hot lemon drinks.
