Sick Summary

I went to get groceries in Alamosa and unwittingly picked up some virus as well. I went in on Sunday and by Tuesday I was down hard. I spent 3 days miserable, used 5 boxes of tissues, 3 bottles of apple juice, 1 bottle of orange, an entire container of green chile and lost 8 lbs. I’m starting to shake it now, but now my fiance is getting it. We’re both hoping to get rid of it in time for vacation in a couple weeks.

However, while I was sick, I tried some Pinterest remedies (I can’t have pain killers or dextro medicines):

1. Lemon Honey Cough Syrup  http://032ad8a.netsolhost.com/madmad/2012/03/12/medicinal-sweets/#.UlGHExCGfWw

This was a nice thing to add to hot tea, but I don’t feel like it helped THAT much.

2. Something called “Natural cold remedy” http://www.pinterest.com/pin/53480314298484109/

This was a punishment that I only got half way through. There is a ton of cayenne and it made me sweat, but it was really unpleasant and I ended up getting hiccups from the spiciness.

3. Detox Bath

This was lovely and I feel like it would have helped if I could have stayed in the whole 40 minutes (our water heater ran out about 12 minutes in).

  1. Hope that you guys are on the mend. Have you tried putting Vick’s on your chest and feet at night? Always seems to help us. Sorry that you both have been unwell. Here’s hoping you are on the path to good health soon!
