Sick Weekend

I spent this past weekend pretty much in bed or on the couch. Saturday I woke up with a fever and chills. Luckily, my dogs are like heaters so they curled up with me to help me try to get warm. I slept most of the day Saturday trying to kick the fever. I was not successful until Sunday. I was starting to feel a little better but couldn't stop sneezing and my nose wouldn't stop running. It was not a fun weekend. I did get to talk to my nephews some on Sunday and found out my brother in law was feeling like I was. I guess even though we are 1000 miles apart we were exposed to the same bug that has been hitting a lot of people I work with.

I am so glad I only have to make it through 3 days this week. I plan on resting and boosting my immune system to try to kick it the rest of the way.

I am sorry you are not feeling well and hope you are back on your feet and feeling fine quickly.

That bug is on the other side of the big pond too. I have been coughing the last couple of weeks, even though the main cold has gone. I am using echinacea to try and shift it.

I have read that drinking a lot of orange juice and taking zinc as a supplement will help your immune system.

I also had more energy since I wasn't working as many hours. I don't seem to have the energy or desire to move or go anywhere now when this crap hits.

Thank you, I am feeling better.

I hope the coughing goes away quickly, these bugs seem to last longer anymore.

Ouch, I hope they all get to feeling better soon.

I have read that about orange juice so I have a glass every morning before I go to work. I hadn't heard about taking zinc to help.

We can get zinc with vitamin C here, it is supposed to be good for the immune system
