Things you can do when you have the flu

flu (Hint! It’s not what this picture shows you, although it’s not all that bad of an idea!)

Remember this post? About how I wasn’t sooo scared anymore? Well, who knows if I have Swine Flu, but I can surely tell you that I’ve got something. So, let me just give you my advice for getting better:

Netflix Watch Instantly, Emergen-C, Advil, a sweet, amazing boy who doesn’t mind so much to watch Star Wars everyday (the gun scenes fast forwarded, of course), and the ability to just give it up and let go (that’s the hardest part)!

Benefits: Me time, catching up on movies, my husband bringing me things, resting – finally, and a few needed days off of work. I feel like crap but I am anything but stressed, that’s for sure.

Now, these are not the best ideas. If you have any costructive suggestions, please DO share them. For now, lunches will be applesauce, green smoothies (I add protein powder and carrots – no apples), and popcorn (with coconut oil, of course)! See? There. At least I’m trying a little bit.


Swine Flu Freaking You Out?

Yes? Then read this:

While watching a great video from our local library today Vaccinations?: Assessing the Risks and Benefits I thought I’d check out Dr. Jay Gordon’s website. The primary reason I checked out this video was to evaluate the risks/benefits of the flu shot and H1N1 flu shot for this year. The video is great – maybe a little long with too little information on what EXACTLY to do (which is understandable as he wants every child to be seen and to have this discussed with their pediatrician – that’s my problem – no one will talk to me about it!). However, I did find more updated information on the website. My favorite piece is this. In the article we are given info on herbs and probiotics to take and how much. My second favorite (and just another reason why I won’t be getting the H1N1 flu shot, nor for my three-year-old) is this article. Now, please also research this information before you take one man’s word for it, but from what I’ve heard/read I’m liking this guy. I’ve bookmarked the site and will be visiting it soon for more information!
