Bam!


How the heck can you feel good one minute and the next minute you feel like . . . well, like crap?    I thought you had to kind of work your way into feeling sick.   You know - - a little warning.   Not BAM!   You're sick!!   Guess I was wrong.   Cuz BAM!   I am sick!  

I am not ashamed to admit that I love drugs.  I know that probably sounds bad.   I live in Washington state where the progressive (misguided?) residents recently voted to make marijuana legal.   That's not what I mean.  I don't do THOSE kinds of drugs.   I mean NyQuil, TheraFlu, cough syrup with codeine - - I get giddy for those kinds of drugs when I'm sick.   I am not a homeopathic kind of girl.   No herbs or bees wax to cure what ails me.   Oh no, not for this girl.  Give me the good stuff.

And so I will go home early from work.    I will take those drugs and drift away into my own version of a teenage wasteland.   And when I wake up - - BAM!! - - maybe I'll feel better.

Oh, and one more thing.   Did you know that starve a cold and feed a fever (feed a cold and starve a fever??) is really a myth?   That's good for me because I never lose my appetite when I'm sick with a cold.    So, when I wake up from my drug induced slumber I think a bowl of peppermint ice cream will make me feel even better!!

  2. I am the total opposite. I fight tooth and nail against taking any drugs. If there is a home remedy, I use it.
    Feel better! Being sick really sucks.

    1. With colds, flu, etc., I'm all for drugs. I might try home remedies for other ailments . . . but I hate to be miserable!!

  3. Sorry you're sick! :( I wish I could take nyquil but it gives me tachycardia. A lot of cold meds do that. And the only reason I might starve when I'm sick is that if I can't taste what I'm eating, I don't bother to eat. I eat for taste dontcha know. lol Feel better!!!!!

    1. That's a really good reason NOT to eat - - if you can't taste the yummy goodness of it, then why bother?!

  12. I don't do drugs either-not no more...An esteemed colleague of mine convinced me to try Gypsy Cold Care Tea. I know you know this about me, because of my recent post. Suffice to say, drinking more than a dozen cups of this tea, got rid of my cold IN ONE DAY! By the way, I never lose my appetite either. Feed a cold-starve a fever, unless I have a fever. Then it's feed a fever-starve a cold. Whatever's clever, as they say.
