Still Sick... But Not As Sick As Some.

So... yeah.  I'm still sick.

We're pretty sure it's the flu.  People that live in my mom's area have been swabbed "flu positive".  The interesting part?  A large portion of those people (that I know of) had gotten the flu shot, so it's not particularly effective this year.

It's pretty much unheard of that I'm sick for longer than 24 hours, but today, which is day three, I'm feeling pretty much like I did on day one, so I'm sure I'll be back to normal tomorrow... which means real posts again!


Be sure to eat lots and lots of organic fruits and vegetables.  I'm sure that's why I haven't been hit as hard by this as others have.  The nutrients I take in every day are making a huge difference in weathering this illness.

My fevers have held at between 100 and 101.7.  Most other people I've talked to have had their fevers reach up to 102 or 103.  I've been taking acetaminophen to reduce my fevers, but in all honesty, that doesn't seem to be help for more than 30 minutes with this strain of the flu.

What should you do if you're going through this particular strain of flu?  Bathing in baking soda seems to help, as do fresh fruit and vegetable smoothies.  And, of course, drink lots and lots of water.

And, of course, be smarter than me, and

Call your doctor!!!
