I got sick over the holidays! A week before Christmas I developed a cough. The next three or four days, I spent resting in bed, trying to get myself healthy for Christmas Eve because I’m the head chef at my Christmas party. It’s been about a week since I got sick, and I can honestly say that I’m feeling better. I did lose my voice, and I still have a slight cough.
Here is a couple of things that I do know:
- It seems that a lot of people are sick! Relatives, other wedding vendors, friends on Facebook!
- It’s a cough, common cold. People are losing their voices
- It doesn’t seem to be the flu
- All you can do is rest.
Like everyone who got sick, I scoured the internet for home remedies. I loaded myself up with Zicam and Airborne. I also fasted for 24 hours after I first got sick. I have asthma, so these common colds hit my respiratory system a bit harder than usual. I did take about 800mg of Ibuprofen to calm my chest congestion. I got a lot of rest, and I drank tons of water. I have a feeling everything helped out because I’m pretty much recovered, even from my cough. A lot of my friends who caught this cold before me, are still sick and have been sick for about a month. Or maybe I was just lucky.
If you’re sick, take care out there!
