Being Sick...



Via
The last couple of days i have been running around and yesterday i finally ran myself ragged...
ragged enough that i was sick like a puppy!
Not exactly green+purple+red+orange+blue+yellow sick but

Nose blowing+eyes watering+head-achy
+in the bed all day=SICK!

I am definitely a miserable person when i am SICK so to help me get over the cold...
i had a few things healing me back to health.


i was drinking Emergen-C like juice...
NOT really but since it was my first time drinking it...
i think it was helpful.


Another dose of Calcium came from Orange Juice 
(hopefully it was fortified)...
i love OJ...just so soothing!


And a box of kleenex, the soft kind...and i finished the box in one day!
My poor nose is soooo raw...don't you hate that feeling???

Honestly, the one thing that helped the most was just sleeping-in and resting up...
it does wonders when i am sick.  
And of course Mr. Pancakes made sure i had all my supplies before he went to work.  
Bless his soul he never gets sick...
thank goodness because one miserable person is all this household needs.
Wishing you nothing today but Health & Wellness!!!!

Question of the Day:
What about you, how do you get over being sick?
Any home-made remedies?

You poor thing I hope you feel better soon. Try Kleenex with Aloe it's much more forgiving on the nose. I also like to have some ginger and lemon tea always makes me feel better. Hope you feel better soon {{hugs}}

Ugh, I hope you feel better soon! I hate being sick and am glad it doesn't happen too often, though when it does, I get really, really sick and normally need an antibiotic. Other than that, I just try to rest, if I can. Last fall, I had to force myself to class while sick, which was really rough.

My husband and I are opposite of you guys-he is always the sick one, and I'm always healthy! He had pneumonia in December that last for SIX weeks! And now yesterday, he went home early from work, sick again. I would also take a multi-vitamin, and if you are going back to work or need some energy, take a Super-B complex vitamin. Get well soon!

Valerie Griffin said...

Aw, feel better soon!

Evelien said...

Get well soon!!
And let your hubby pamper you a bit :)

Rose's Daughter said...

Aww! Hope you feel better soon!!!

This Cookn' Mom said...

Get well soon please! I usually eat a lot of fresh oranges,pineapples, and cantaloupe to get vitamin c! The juices at the store tend to be watered down with all that additive stuff.

Alida said...

Get well soon!

I have had a stuffy nose and a cough myself. I am drinking water with vitamin C in it, green tea with honey, and lots of water. After three days of that I am finally feeling more like myself again.

Blessings to you!

awww... feel better honey! i'm fighting a cold now. I'm trying not to let it take me down!

This isn't going to do you a bit of good right now. However - for next time...as soon as you feel a tingle of a germ or have exposed to some, start taking vitamin c AND Golden Seal. Golden Seal is an herb. It works for me. I can't give it to my son because he's too young/ its would be hard to swallow anyway but I'll give him some Airborne when I think he's been exposed.

Teresha@Marlie and Me said...

I hope you feel better soon! I hate being sick. I have tons of homemade remedies like lemon, honey for sore throat and garlic/ginger/honey for immune booster

Ashley said...

Aww, I hope you get better soon! Looks like you got a few things that'll hopefully help you get better quick. Get some rest too.

Sunny said...

I hope you feel better!!!

The only time I usually get sick is allergy related and since I'm breastfeeding, I had to give up normal meds.... My remedy is just to keep pushing through it and sleep!

Vanisha @ Vanishas Life In...Australia said...

Ohh Mrs Pancakes I hope you feel better soon. When I get sick it's usually because I've worked too hard and am exhausted. Lots of sleep and massages do wonders for me. And cuddles. Can't go wrong with cuddles. Sending you hugs <3

CC [AKA Frugalista] said...

That was me a couple weeks ago and it sucks!! Hope you feel better soon. I did the Emergen C thing and I slept like a baby with Nyquil. I was actually bummed I had to stop taking it!

Marisa A. said...

You've definitely got all of my favorites already! However, I love Theraflu when I'm feel ill. It tastes gross but it works so well and soooo fast.

Mrs. Julius said...

Awwww. i hope you feel better soon! Seriously...I've had this nasty ass cough for almost a month. First it was bronchitis and then i thought i got rid of it with antibiotics but somewhere ended up with a chest cold now! fml...lol. it sucks! i don't really have any home remedies. my husband gets mad at me for not taking my vitamins. he says that will help big time. and lots of rest that i haven't been getting...too busy. oh i do like lemon and honey tea. :)

Bravoe Runway said...

I hope you feel better soon! I definitely try to drink more liquids, take my medication on time as recommended.

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

Emergen-C, chicken noodle soup, OJ and lots of rest!

I'm not sick but I do have this weird sore throat. Totally don't get it. I hope we both feel better soon!

Elle Sees said...
