“I Am Sick and Miserable”


Description from AllureofGemsGlamJulia: For last 10days I was taking care of my husband being sick with some kind of virus on the top of his cough from high blood pressure medication. As much as I am paranoid about washing my hands, dishes to avoid contamination I did get it from him :(. Last night I had terrible chills and today I have a temperature and cough. ..

    Awww Julia, that sucks, my hubby and I have been passing a cold back and forth, so I understand. Sending you both healing energies, I hope you both get well soon. This is a beautiful pick as well, definitely a favorite! If I could make you some of my grandma’s home made chicken soup and get it to you I would. Drink lots of fluids, eat lotsa garlic (if you like it) it’s a natural immune booster, you can get ecinachia and golden seal, at a vitamin store, or even your local wal mart or CVS, it’s an antioxidant and excellent for relief of the symptoms you speak of, also cleanses the system of toxins. Feel better soon! ::hugs:: :)

    Great choice even if you are under the weather. Put on the warm fuzzies, salty warm water to gargle with chicken soup and juice and get better soon.

    I think we are all suffering from winter’s last attempt to meddle in our health records. I do have a sure cure for colds and the flu…teach kindergarten for 20 years and you will have a nuclear immune system. :D

    Seriously, being sick is the pits especially after you have been taking care of some one else who has been sick. I think Ravin has the right idea especially the chicken soup and lots of fluids. Take care of your self and feel better soon. Chicky Hugs to help you.

Let your hubby take care of you now. :) Chicky hugs are being sent to you!!! :D

    Thank You, chickies :) I did cook dinner, even though I do not feel good. But I am not going to serve it to Michael. I served myself, period…

    I rarely get sick. I deal with children for about 28 years , teaching piano : face to face and I also thought that I have a very strong immune system… ha!And we have flu and pneumonia shots…

    I just know that I am hard to kill so… hopefully I will be out of it by Monday :)

    Hugs to you Julia. Being sick is such a bummer. Sheltie Mom, I thought you had a new remedy. I kept re-reading your comment and thought you told us to gargle with chicken soup! I was thinking, oh, be careful the soup is not too hot to gargle, and don’t choke on a noodle. After re-reading it again, I get it now, gargle with the salty water, eat the soup!!! Long day on this end!!!

    Hey I have a good one besides follow all of the above and follow your doctors orders. If you have a fever they will treat you with antibiotics. However they will make you wear a mask in the office through which you will be unable to catch your breath. (I just held the bottom of mine open nurse said I could risk them to law suit if I infected someone in their lobby. I just said well if you want to call the squad to recesitate me OK. I am a real grump when I am sick.) Above all the main point whine a lot and put yourself to bed and let him make his own dinner or send out for carry in. You deserve it. After did you not make him this comfortable when he felt this way? We women are so used to taking care of everyone else and being strong we forget how to do this ourselves. I just go to bed now when I feel like it. What’s the worst can happen, he may feel greatful for all you did for him while he was sick.
    Better yet if he doesn’t, you call out for carry in. Order him pizza or oriental even Pizza Hut will deliver lassagna now.
    I hope you feel better soon. It will run its course after making the end of your winter memoriable. I am sending lots of well wishes for you and get well vibes. Take care of you. Will be thinking of you in the next few days. Don’t forget that you need to take care of you.

    I am so greatful by the way that your illness has not affected the way you look at beautiful gemstones. This pick is just not as soft and feminine, it is though very classy and sexy. (something I am definitely sure you are not feeling righ now, LOL)

    My husband has been coughing and puffing on me for several days now. I finally went to sleep in the extra bedroom for some peace. Now I am feeling kinda crummy. I got my chicken in the pot now for soup. He can’t make soup. I love him but he gets cranky when I get sick. Don’t know if it’s me being crabby or if he feels useless to help. Although he will go out and get me anything I need.

    UH OH — Is this contagious through the keyboard? LOL I have had chills and a sore throat all day…..can’t seem to get warm no matter what I do. :( It is thunderstorming outside with lots of rain and lightning, too. Blah. I think I will take a hot shower and eat some chicken soup & crackers.
