I was so miserable and in so much pain that I wanted to write my last will and testament. Given the amount of stress I have been under lately I think my immune system withdrew from classes for the semester.
So here I am, lying in bed praying for the sweet release of death, when it occurred to me to do three things. I'm a health advocate. I can do this!
One - start juicing vegetables and mega dosing bowls of leafy greens.
Two - take an herbal remedy/mineral cocktail.
Three - literally do everything in my power to sleep for 48 hours straight.
The combination worked wonders. Six days later, I still feel like a bus ran over me, but I am no longer praying for death and hopefully tomorrow I will be well enough to return to work and the land of the living.
Here's what I juiced:
Carrots, celery, spinach and garlic. Yuck! Don't judge me. I drank 32 ounces of this twice a day. Along with green tea.
Here's what I took:
I advise you see a doctor immediately if you think you have the flu and do what they tell you. I went to an MD. I tested positive for the flu virus. I immediately removed myself from all other humans and proceeded to try to heal. The above regimen is what I added when after three days, I felt horribly worse not better.
And when I say worse, I mean WORSE. I thought I was truly going to die. It was at that moment that I regretted not giving a few people a piece of my mind and instead taking the high road....funny how at death's door you regret the things you didn't say. Lol. I won't elaborate here but there were some cuss words involved. I digress, that's a story for another day. I'll have to do more yoga or something to ground myself better when I am back at 100%. Life is coming at me these days. But I will survive!
