Most of the time I am a very healthy person. The downside to that good fortune is that when I do fall ill, I feel miserable. I did very well over the holidays but this week I seem to have picked up a little bug. I’m not full-on sick. I’m just kinda sick. A little bit sick. The level of sick where you will drag yourself to work because your* functional but you’ll feel bad all day.

So I’m going to do what I usually do when I get sick. Mainline tea (and thank goodness for my shelf and a half of options), quadruple my vitamin C intake, pull out my fuzzy socks and the afghan my mom made for me when I went away to university and watch DVDs (in this case, the Stargate: Atlantis ones I got for Christmas) until I fall asleep and/or feel better.

There are a ton of nasty flu bugs this winter. Stay healthy out there.

* Edited to “you’re” two days later when I’m healthy because apparently even when I’m only half sick my ability to use proper grammar goes out the window.

    Hope you feel better soon! Echinacea is amazing. It’s kept all those nasty cold and flu bugs away so far.

    I started taking it preventively before our writers’ meeting because I knew there were some bugs going around.

      Thanks. I should have thought of Echinacea. I’m better now but I’m never drinking 3 pots of tea in one day ever again!

    Oh no! I hope you’re feeling better today (although fuzzy socks, blanket, and DVD’s sounds pretty great right about now no matter how I’m feeling!).

    Get well soon. 🙂
