So Monday I had a sore throat no big deal right? WRONG! Tuesday mrning rolls around and I wake up with a pounding headache and as sson as i rise up I throw up like I had drank a whole bottle of everclear and a 12 pack of rolling rock. Now the headache is gone and the throwing up but now there is a new set of problems. My lungs feel like they are filled with goop and my nose couldnt smell horse crap if it was under it or in it for that fact. The worst part is that it feels like a dang lawn mower has been mowing of layers of skin in  my throat then it has been sprinkled with salt for fertilizer. I really want to fall over dead. Now my 6 month old son has it too. He is taking it better than I am. I swear I am such a whine butt when Im sick. Thing is though I never get sick. I havent been sick in about 8 years.  Ok to top this all off. My best friend Niki has the same thing I do. We are supposed to go see monday night raw live on monday in Indy. How am I going to scream my head off when I see my man Randy Orton? or scream Cena sucks? Oh man I will be so devastated if im not better:(




Cute kid you have there. :)

Oh God, if there is anything I hate more its Puking. I'm 28 and I turn into a 2 year old when I'm sick. I find that tea with honey soothes a sore throat.

Feel Better!

EVERYONE I know is sick! Sounds just like what you've got. I can handle most colds, but I cry like a little baby when I have a sore throat or when I puke.

And it's even worse when you're sick and your kid(s) get sick too!!!!

I'm so sorry!

REST!!!! And drink lots of fluids. 

hey babe. sorry you and the little man are under the weather. i'm all about Self Care At Home when possible, so i'll share some things from their site we do here if you are interested:

Treatment of pain is often the number one priority for any type of sore throat. Fever can increase fluid requirements, and painful swallowing can decrease fluid intake.

  • Therefore, drinking enough fluids is very important. When it is hard to drink, it is important to decrease your body's requirements for fluid through rest and lowering any fever that is present. Choose high–quality fluids such as soup broth (which replaces both salt and water losses) and sugar–containing solutions (they help the body absorb the fluids more rapidly). Avoid caffeine because it can cause water loss.
  • Throat lozenges often prove inadequate for all but the most minor cases. Gargling with salt water is sometimes helpful. You may try mixing table salt with warm water and gargling.
  • Pain control treatment can help increase fluid intake. Although they may be rough on the stomach, NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti–inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen such as Advil, and naproxen such as Naprosyn) are often more effective pain relievers than acetaminophen (Tylenol).
  • Herbal teas containing ingredients such as licorice have shown in studies to provide significant relief from a sore throat.



Tuna...the other white meat!

 This new throat spray for flu was on my local news a few weeks ago. Maybe it will help? The people that used it, raved about it. It's supposed to be available at health food stores. Here's a link to the video of the segment if you're interested.
