The annual Flu season has begun, early and hard. Doctors are touting getting the flu shot. Fine, for those of you who can. I get deathly ill from such, so I haven’t had one in thirty years. I don’t have the flu, either, although I do have something. Nasty dry cough, headache, fever. Last night, the fever hit 102.7. It was down to 99.9 this morning. Sleep, lots of hot tea, warm fuzzy pjs… order of the day. Probably have soup for lunch and supper. Had a piece of toast earlier.
There are ways to mitigate illness. Wash your hands a lot. Don’t congregate in public places. If you feel sick, and you HAVE to go out, get a face mask. Add garlic and onion to your meals. Keep the ginger ale on hand. I also keep tissues, Poise pads, hard tack candies or cough drops, and a bag-lined garbage can close. Lots of fluids: tea, ginger ale, water, soup. Find what cough suppressant works for you, and keep it in the house.
Here’s hoping you don’t need the advise.
