Or was it the other way around?
I wish I could remover what my nana used to tell us when we were down with a cold or flu.
Whatever “this” is had been trying to pull both my husband and myself down since early last Thursday.
we didn’t opt to vaccinate our family with the flu vaccine.
The very first and only time I got a flu shot I was sick for entire week.
so sick I couldn’t even get out of bed or go to work or take care of anyone.
“it’s a coincidence” that I just so happen to get sick right after I got my flu vaccine?
I don’t believe it.
our children are all immunized with all the “normal health Canada” recommended immunizations. We even opted to get our oldest the HPV vaccine amidst all the controversy.
But for the flu? No.
The last few days I’ve got my very first glimpse menopause might look like.
It’s my own personal tropical heatwave. it’s a constant battle.
First I’m freezing and searching for my socks and I’m bundling up with a big thick blanket in front of the fireplace the next minute I’m throwing everything off because I’m sweltering.
Who the heck turned up the heat?
We have the humidifier running in our room and I’ve already dug out the sniffle cream to slather on my poor nose. But for the most part it hasn’t been that bad. Seriously.
It hasn’t been like a Niquil commercial.
No one is moaning lying on the sofa trying to convince you that you should call for their mother.
Sure I’ve been a little achy but in the scale from one to 10 this is about a 6.
I’m believing we aren’t as sick as we could be because we’ve been juicing a lot the last little bit whatever this “is” hasn’t been able to get a really good foothold.
The kids love to help make the juice but as soon as it’s ready to drink the only one who sticks around is the youngest. Unless it’s fruit then good luck getting a glass.
We have been juicing carrots and garlic which have been known to boost immunity and it’s working!
I don’t know if The old saying is true or if it’s just an old saying.
I wonder what my nana would have thought of hearing me tell my monkeys to drink their veggies?
What tried-and-true methods have you used to get over a cold?
