Almost everyone I know has been sick this winter, except me, until now! Being sick has to be one of the worse feelings in the world. I'm not a sickly type of person so when I do catch something, it hits me HARD. There was a time, in the not so long ago past, when I could proudly say "I haven't been sick in years." Well, today, I am eating those words.
Some of you may ask, "Sunshine, did you take medicine?" Normally, I don't take meds unless it is absolutely necessary. Headaches, I usually sleep off. This, I definitely couldn't just sleep off. So, I forced myself to take some NyQuil, which has to be some of the most disgusting stuff ever! I also took a muscle relaxer, a prescription I still had from the car accident. (oohhh .... I guess I shouldn't have done that but they weren't expired and they helped a bit) The real star of this story is a home remedy. It's called a hottie tottie. I owe you one KR-H! I will share it with you all: a shot of brandy, tea, honey, and lemon. Drink while hot, get under the covers and sweat it out. I did this last night and lo and behold I am coherent today!
