Our first sickness of the year. It’s been several months since my son and I have been sick. Last year, I started having him take a multi-vitamin with Zinc in it. I also started taking elderberry. I believe both products have kept us healthy for most of last year!
I started feeling my symptoms a few days after he did. So, whatever we have, it’s the same strain. It was pretty brutal for me and I took over the counter medicine. My son doesn’t take medicine, so I kept my oil diffusers going as much as I could.
I am a few days behind my son’s sickness and I hope that I am over the worst of it. I did start tracking my symptoms because I am unsure if they are normal. I can’t tell if I have a cold or the flu as my symptoms overlap between the two of them.
Focus on getting better
Besides being sick, I am hoping to be 100% better by next week as I start college! I am trying to keep positive and motivated. I really want to stick with it and earn my degree! I deserve an education!
Since I’ve been sick, I haven’t done much writing. I’ve been able to check emails and respond here and there but I can barely concentrate and focus. When I was feeling up to it, I did go to the grocery store to pick up the necessities.
Today, I ended up going to the store to buy soup for my son and myself. Last night, I was craving soup! My son loves chicken noodle soup and I found a vegetarian soup that I could enjoy!
I am so happy that my son was well enough to go back to school today! I really dislike when he has to miss school due to illness or even doctor’s appointments! He absolutely loves school!
Lastly, I wanted to slowly dive back into yoga as it has been about a week or more since I’ve been able to do a workout! I am taking it easy due to body soreness and feeling achey all over. I found an awesome workout that is perfect for when you are sick:
