Sick and Tired


I have been feeling "yucky" for the past week (I'm still trying to see how getting a flu shot is helpful, when it's the shot that made me sick?!!)

I need ANY home-grown, holistic, voodoo, over-the-counter remedies that might bring this body back to life!!!

Here's my list: Congestion, COUGHING, aches, fever, chills, COUGHING, monster-voice, cranky, COUGHING, slimey goop in the throat (tmi?) and of course, COUGHING...

Suggestions?

Everytime I get a flu shot...you guessed it...I get the FLU!!
Needless to say...I don't get them anymore. But that isn't going to help you right now...sorry! :(
I would go to sleep for a week...it might be in vain, but I'd give it a shot! (no pun intended)

I've had the same thing for the past TWO months. I recently went to a lady that does natural remedies. Here's a couple things to try. One is to gargle salt water and also try sniffing it up your nose, not fun but it cleans all the gunk out for a little bit. Also she said to put your feet in hot water til their pink and then put wet cotton socks on, followed by dry wool socks and go to bed this way. She said the contrast helps your circulation and can help clear your head. Good luck!

Oh goodness. Doesn't sound good.

I've got a terrible cough and slime, but haven't had the fevers or things.

I hope the saline works. (I am thinking yipes in my head)

Although I'll try most anything once!

hi, it's me! melissa c said...

Poor thing. I haven't gotten the flu shot. Don't know if I will. Don't want to be sick and it seems like I still get flus during the winter whether I get one or not!!

Oh, bad flu shot! I got mine 3 days ago and I still feel like someone beat up my right arm.

Have you tried a really good chick flick and some Ben and Jerry's?? How about an exotic flavor of Stephen's hot chocolate?

So sorry you are sick...
