I rarely get sick. When I do, I feel like a little baby. I hate being sick! Then, I always kick myself for taking for granted what it feels like to be healthy and vow to not take it for granted ever again if I could just get well. I also am a bit of a germ-a-phob, especially since my son was born. I have a very fine tuned, keen, sixth sense when dirty little hands are moving toward touching him so I find myself to be a recluse these days. But this Christmas season I failed. While everyone around me managed to stay healthy, I am sitting at home wrestling a head/chest cold. We had about 15 people here at one time and I’m the only one that got sick. Are you kidding me? Me…who never leaves home without hand sanitizer. Me…who takes the long way around the store just to avoid walking through a cloud of germs from a stranger’s sneeze. Me…who holds her breath in elevators. Me…
I guess I really am in control of nothing.
But when I do find myself in this unwanted state, I have a pretty good arsenal of stuff I use so my plan is to be better by New Years! I will let you know how that goes. In the mean time, here are my top five “go-to’s” when battling these nasty colds:
- Dr. Bronner’s Lavender Organic Hand Sanitizer spray
- Umcka Cold Care Hot Drink Packets
- Wellness Colloidal Silver Throat Spray
- Sunkist Zinc Throat Lozenges
- Neti Pot (any brand)
Here’s my “not-so-pretty-germ-ninja” photo. I’ve been in my pj’s all day. No judging.
See you around the blog! Peace!
