Battling the Bronchial Blues
Armed with good drugs and instructions to get lots of rest and drink plenty of fluids, I headed home determined to battle the dreaded demon into submission. Easier said than done. It's now been three weeks and though I've won a few skirmishes, I have yet to win the war. I'm on my second round of antibiotics (much stronger this time), a steroid pack, inhaler and prescription cough meds and while they appear to be working , they're taking their own sweet time about it. I went back to work yesterday feeling pretty good and dragged myself home six hours later about ready to collapse. In fact, after taking the dogs out, that's exactly what I did. I crawled into bed, covered myself with three blankets and slept for ten hours. ::sigh::
So tell me, dear friends. What methods do you employ when you need a pick-me-up? Do you have a favorite comfort read that always makes you smile? A comfort food that turns your personal gloomy days into ones filled with sunshine and smiles? A tried and true home remedy that soothes a sore throat, clears a stuffy head or just makes you feel less like the living dead? A joke or silly story that will make me laugh? ('cause I could really use a good laugh about now!)
One random person leaving a comment today will get a book from my stash and another book will go to the first person who pulls me from the grumpy gloomies back to my normal sunny self with a good, deep belly laugh!
