Being Sick…Lesson’s learned

  1. Ask for help
  2. Go to bed
  3. Let go of how things should be done and just let your mate do them
  4. Try and keep your sense of humor, getting cranky does no one any good!
  5. Some food will taste good and others bad, but remember to say thankful for any food sent your way that you didn’t have to make
  6. If something hits so hard and fast as to knock you down and out.. as much as herbs and food and rest are wonderful, know when to get thy on antibodics!
  7. Drink lots of water
  8. Watch your fever.. and yes it will always be worse at night then in the day… why is that!
  9. Even if you love normally making everything by hand, or doing it the “old fashioned way” I have decided that having tissue when sick is a must, I know, I know, I like my hankies but I don’t like using ones that are dripping slimy wet, so either a) alot more hankies needed or box’s of tissue for sick purposes only.
  10. Homemade herb candy are wonderful
  11. Homemade herb drinks are awesome
  12. Local raw Honey and lemon are my friend!
  13. Summer heat when sick makes you feel like nature has a perverse sense of humor.
  14. The garden does not stop producing just because you don’t feel well
  15. When you feel like you could fall over, Don’t can! Don’t ask your man to can on top of doing all regular chores, just have the products put in the fridge and thank god, that you have extra fridges to do so!
  16. Always have extra bread in the freezer, just in case..
  17. Whatever you loved as a child, will still be what you want when truly sick(even if its not good for you), I want campbell’s cream of mushroom with salt topped crackers..hmmm
  18. When dizzy, going up and down stairs is a issue, ask for help, falling is not a good idea
  19. Call your momma and a few select friends, they will make you feel better just by caring and giving advice on how to get better, it does not matter if you knew it, what matters is that they care enough to share it with you.
  20. Say thank-you to those who are helping you!

  1. I’m so sorry to hear you’re sick! Take care of yourself.

    I agree with you that what you ate as a kid when you’re sick is what you’ll want as an adult!
