My mom would say to gargle hot water mixed with salt and vinegar to kill what's in your throat, and take teaspoons of honey and lemon for the cough.
If they sell Odwalla juice out there I recommend C Monster...one an hour if you can. It's brought me to health faster than anything over the years when I've caught bugs.
A vicious flu is going around my job...I mean bad, like several people have taken their kids to the E.R. this week alone, and then they are getting it from the kids and passing it around at work. I feel it coming on so I'm on Odwalla too...lol
My Grandma always says gargle with warm salt water too. Haven't heard the vinegar part. Thing is it's all the way down at the bottom of my throat. I've been drinking Ramen broth hoping that will help somewhat. And yummm I love Odwalla - good idea.
Apparently the same vicious flu is hitting everyone in Dallas too. They said on the news the other day they had to cancel a soccer tournament because all the coaches came down with it. Several teachers at school have canceled class that I know of. So at least I don't have to feel alone in being sick this time around. I've had the flu before and this is by far the worst yet! I'm so getting my flu shot next time around. I had a bad reaction to one in 7th grade so I haven't done one since but I think this has convinced me to give it another shot!
My throat is on fire!
I found a doctor through a guy I work with who only accepts cash patients and it's only a $50 charge!!! He says the guy is really good and he likes him. They got me an appointment for today at 2:15 - YIPPEEE!!! Hopefully they can figure out something to do with this darn throat of mine so I can get some sleep.
I'm ready to go Ninja mode on this thing
