It feels like everyone's got the flu or some sort of severe cold lately. And I am scared, because I've been putting off the throat tingle and sniffly nose for the past two weeks now with a combination of hot tea, copious amounts of vitamin C and sheer will (got a big biz trip and meeting coming up - Can't. Be. Sick.).
If I keep going-going-going, I will make it - at least until after the trip. Because once I stop ... wheez, cough, hack. That'll be it for me.
As a sick person, things are not pretty for me. About the same time the red chafed nose appears, so does the terrible under-eye circles, the acne (why?!), the general malaise coupled with an uncontrollable urge to eat pretty much every single thing - except the fruits and vegetables - in my kitchen despite having no appetite. And general cleanliness will go right out the window. I will be wallowing in pretty much the same set of fleece jammies layered under an over-sized sweatshirt and Ugg boots for about the duration.
(I know, getting a cold is glam style blogger business, isn't it? And sure, I could've just written "I am starting to feel sick," but I've got to put my literal arts degree to good use every now and again, don't I? So what's the take-away here? When I get sick, best to just Nyquil my ass out).
Do you ladies have any tips for staying healthy during the height of flu season? And if you do get sick, what makes you feel the most comfortable?
