UGH!!!



I am not dead, but at times I’ve thought death was not far away. A bit before New Years Eve I received a gift I’d rather not have received....a grim stomach virus which apparently was not “covered” under the umbrella of my yearly flu shot. All I can say it is misery with a capital “M” and does not seem to want to leave. I am living off Gatorade which ordinarily I would not drink. Just the thought of food is unbearable. All I can say is I am too old for this mess. Have read no books, taken no pictures, or played on the computer. I’ve done nothing but watch old timey movies on TV. Hope to be back to normal before too much longer.

A BELATED HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU

  5. What are terrible way to be in during the holidays. Keep on resting and drinking those fluids. I am sure Buddy will "run" down to the store for you if you need anything.

  6. Oh crap!!! That's no fun!
    There are lot's of immune supplements that can be helpful...of course...there's the standard Vitamin C...but I've found a few others that are really good...
    Source Naturals....AHCC
    Herbs etc.....Deep Health
    North American Herb and Spice...OregaMax
    or OregaResp if you have upper respiratory crap...
    these are all products I've used and felt were helpful to both recover and prevent!!!
    Hope you recover soon!!!

  10. Is it possible that you had a reaction to something in the flu shot? I did and reacted the same way as you - never got another flu shot and I have never been sick since - only got one flu shot and I had such a bad reaction I woke up in palative care - yes its true. I took a while to recover, but I did and will never have another flu shot - Doctor's advice. I never had a flu....ever, and the one time I stepped up to the plate and said "oh well, everyone else is getting the shot, I may as well too" - bad mistake for me - anyway hon, before I ramble on any more, I do hope you are feeling better today - my healing thoughts are flying in your direction. Take care Genie :)

  16. Sorry you were't feeling well and hope you better by now. I haven't been sick in any way for at least five years. That streak ended last month when I got the flu!

    Overall, I hope your holiday season was a good one. Here's to a happy and healthy 2014 for us all.
