The problem with being single...
... is having nobody to bring chicken soup, draw hot baths, and so forth.

Sore throad, yup
Vise around the skull headache, check
Cold shivers, got them

I've turned my bed all the way up to 15, turned on the electric heat in my apt for the first time ever, bundled up in sweats and under three layers of homemade quilts, slugged down grapefruit juice, ibuprofin, echenachia, vitamin C, and zink. It's not working.


(And they need me at work tomorrow, and I have plans for tomorrow evening and Thursday evening...)

Current Mood: sick sick

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. :(
If you want/need me to come over and make you some soup and pamper you I will! Just give me a call.

{I know what you mean about the single and sick thing. I'm always alone when I'm sick. I end up starving and wishing I was dead.}

Sorry you are sick. It sounds like you have done everything I would have suggested. Hopefully you will be better tomorrow. Get sleep tonight. Oh by the way, you need wassail--one can frozen orange juice, one can frozen apple juice, five cans water, one lemon squeezed and put in pot with peel, cinnamon-1 tsp or more, ginger-piece of fresh or 1/2 tsp, allspice 1/2 tsp, clove (not too much) 1/4 tsp, dash of nutmeg simmer and then sip. Take out lemon peel before brew gets bitter. I just shake in the spices now. The measurements are a guess. Good luck

Re: Sick

Thanks for the receipe, but it's a bit out of my league, as brain fuzzed as I am.

I had to have a friend come over just to warm up some soup.

Re: Sick

The recipe is easy if you have the stuff but is a bother if you don't. I keep the juices on hand at all times. In fact, i am going to make myself some now. JATG puts cayenne in hers too. Cayenne tablets are good also. Rest and sleep today.
