Like, wake up shaking and sweating with a high fever kind of sick. My eyes hurt, my head hurts, my chest and throat hurt; I just freaking hurt.
I called my mom like any other young adult would do living on their own (right?) and she told me to do the usual routine: take vitamins, check; drink lots of water, check; take meds, check; gargle with hot salt water, ermmm...I'll get to that. That is always my least favorite when I am sick.
So, here I will be on my couch with my new books. Honestly, I don't even mind. I have an endless stash of tea and coffee, and all weekend to get better. I guess this week just wanted to kick me in the pants for the finale. Haha...ha.
I do, however, mind that I have dishes in the sink and no motivation to do them, as well as a big 'ol load of laundry to do. There's always tomorrow, right?
What is your go-to cure when you're sick?
My mom is constantly telling me to gargle with salt water. No joke, I could say I have an ear infection. "Oh, just gargle with some salt water and you'll be all better."
I love my mom :)
