Happy Monday, dear Posse folks! I was planning to have a scented post for you today, but alas, in the last couple of days, I’ve come down with a mild but pesky cold. Sigh. All stuffed up and no way to smell. A real bummer not to be able to test-drive what I was hoping to.
I’m fighting the good fight with some herbal immunity-boosting tablets, vitamin C, and of course, lots of red, white and green tea, and that’s helping keep the worst of the symptoms at bay. I’m just praying that it doesn’t somehow worsen and develop into bronchitis like it did last spring – yuck! Although I realize my plight could be worse – a co-worker of mine has come down with strep throat, bless her heart.
So if you have a moment or two, please do share what works for you when you’re feeling all stuffed up and under the weather. Do you eat or drink certain things that help? Maybe do some kind of treatment with menthol or eucalyptus oil? Any other tips or tricks that help you survive? And of course, there’s always Vick’s Vaporub, but I don’t have any and am not sure if they even make it anymore.
