Frayed Around the Edges...

I thought that perhaps this winter I would be able to skirt around being sick.  I had grand fantasies that if I stayed inside and never left the house, I'd be immune to the nasties floating about.  Unfortunately I did have to leave and the combination of pressure and stress just caught up to me.  So, I've been nursing my maladies quietly, trying not to fuss on my blog.  I don't want to sound like I'm chronically ill.  It does feel that way though.  Anyway, I'll be resting and recovering from my minor aliments.  If I don't get right back to you right away, then I apologize, but I'm most likely lying prostrate, slathered in vapor rub and dipping in and out of cold medicine blurred consciousness.  So sorry, but I am feeling a little bit better and should be much recovered soon.

you poor guy....sending you good health thoughts and just rest....rest....rest....

none of us get enough and sometimes i think that is the body's way of slowing us down for a second.

I'm pretty amazed actually... but since I've posted this post, I'm feeling much better. Maybe it's all the good health vibrations being sent my way...

Or maybe it's the cold medicine kicking in...

Or both...

Either way, I'm glad of it.

andrew, here's a natural way to help you feel better....use coarse sea salt take a hot bath hot as you can stand it put a generous handful of sea salt in tub and soak.... Once out get under blankets & sweat...this helps me from a holistic source. Also get lemons & raw honey...boil water... Use large cup add a half lemon squeeze juice in add generous spoon of honey add hot water add the half lemon you squeeze and drink this... Three times a day this will help you feel better... Use this all the time... Feel better! Enjoy reading your blog! Take care

Thanks so much! I'll be sure to try this out. I've been taking SUPER hot showers and using this camphor, eucalyptus, and peppermint aromatherapy soap. My sinuses feel great and open... at least for an hour or so.

I'll make sure to do the lemon thing tonight. It sounds like a nice drink anyway.
