Thanks for the get well wishes everyone! It helps a lot!
I do take zinc which I upped as my last cold (no, two colds ago)..vitamin C, I've started Omega 3 a month ago again, beta carotene forever, vitamin D, sheesh, But I was taking Cold FX, L-Lysine to hopefully keep colds at bay..(maybe I would have been worse without, but will never know) possibly too much immune stimulation?
I also used some Zicam..it's got sucralose in it, but since I'm flaring I don't care. I'd take a flare over a cold anyday..truthfully.
I don't have chamomile tea..maybe an ativan and normal tea could work ..heehee.
Since I'm totally pooped out after last night, this morning was easier, but by this evening I'm sure yesterday's processed meals will be coming 'round..lol!).
My husband got me some chicken soup to soothe the savage beast. I think he feels guilty. OK, for a while I'll let him feel that ;-)
Hope you all have a great Christmas celebration no matter how you feel.
Cheers to the butt meds.....until they fail us!
Oh, my mind was in high gear during sleep....I dreamed my car was stolen 3 times in one night..I'm definitely feeling a loss of control. I woke up without finding my car, but I did find my gloves...haha.
Can't wait for the turkey supper care package tomorrow night!
Take care all!
