Still sick…

This morning it occurred to me that maybe the reason I felt like crap was not because I was still sick but because I basically haven’t eaten or drunk anything in days. Maybe something cold and sweet would do the trick, I thought. I staggered outdoors for the first time all week and went and bought a drive-thru McDonalds milkshake.

By the time I got back home I was shivering head-to-toe and climbed into bed and pulled three blankets on top of me, leaving the shake half-consumed.

    I’ve been feeling the same way since Tuesday, feel like I’ve been hit by a ton of bricks, chills, sweating, etc, must be a stomach bug

    Whatever you drink (and start small, with liquids first), make sure you take little sips, even though you might feel like chugging the whole thing, or else you’ll yarf more. I do alright with sprite/7up/ginger ale, anything clear, but my very fav is to send my husband out for a Sonic slushie. Sweet, but sugar with ice. It always helps settle my stomach and gives a bit of water too. If all else fails, suck on an ice cube every half hour or however you can handle it. Hope you feel better soon. I can’t wait till school starts in two weeks so everyone can have this…….
