I am not feeling any better. I missed both concerts, but I did manage to make the soup. It has not worked its magic. My throat is killing me on the left side only. I have a headache the starts in the back of my neck on the left side and comes all the way up the left side of my head to just over my left eye. I sound like I am super conjested, but no runny nose, and very little coughing.
Anybody got a diagnosis?
I hate taking western medicine, so I try to exhaust all know natural options before taking meds. I will normally endure a headache and drown myself in water until I can determine the cause. I didn’t even try with this one. I’ve taken 4 doses of ibuprophen in 2 days and that is unheard of for me. I’ve taken 3 doses of sudaphed, in hopes of getting some relief, but nothing. I don’t want to go buy more medicine because that aisle of the store makes me nauseous (no kidding). I’ve sniffed Vick’s. Nothing.
In the middle of writing this post my friend Kwesi brought me a piping hot bowl of seafood gumbo with rice. Yum-o. And, I finally need to blow my nose.
What’s wrong with me? I need this to go away. I’m miserable. I just want to sleep all day. I worked Friday, but I’m pretty sure tomorrow’s not going to happen. I feel like crap. The most relief I’ve felt was Thursday night when I drank 2 cups of hot tea with lemon, honey and a shot of bourbon. At least I slept well. Is that what it boils down to? Bourbon? Should I just drink hot totty’s until I feel better?
Isn’t that bulldog adorable? I miss my dogs. They would make me feel better right now. I had 2 yorkies. Samson died 2 years ago this month. I had to put him down after 14 years. I lost Rudy to his dad when I left him. I can’t have pets in my new apartment, and I shouldn’t. I’m not home enough for a pooch. A dog would make me feel better right now.
I’m soliciting natural remedies? Any suggestions? Anybody willing to make the trip to the health food store, or wherever I’ll need to get the ingredients you guys suggest?
I think I’m going back to the couch to continue watching the Project Runway marathon.
