Hello my lovelies!
I alas am sick again. Well, not sick again, more like I was feeling a lot better and then I stopped chugging the fluids and the meds and it came right back. *sigh*
Dont get me wrong, I'm not feeling no where near as bad as I did initially, no fever or sneezing here! However, I do have a bit of a dilemma. You see I was having some dimetapp for my cough, and as long as I have that, I dont cough. Yay, all is good right?
But no, life has to throw in a lemon. It turns out my sinuses were acting up, and thus, I couldnt breath through my nose cause it was all clogged up. But why not take Advil Cold and Sinus? My usual life saver? Because life hates me that's why. I called my pharmacist and she told me that I cant mix both cough meds with Sinus ones and that I have to suffer through one of them without medicine. :(
Well I'm taking my yucky tasting cough syrup but now my throat is SO DRY (because I'm forced to breath through my mouth ) that I can barely talk! *tear* If there is anything you are to know about Zahra it is that she talks. A lot. Like, you want to smack her in the hopes that she will shut up. But she wont.
So to not be able to talk is like death to me! But alas! Google to the rescue! I searched for some home remedies (while the humidifier was on full blast) to sooth a dry throat and came up with the classic lemon and honey trick. I sliced up some lemon slices and poured tea and honey over them. Very yummy. Somewhat effective. However, I have had 5 cups of it today, and I think if I have to have another cup I will probably start having a hissy fit. Yes, very mature, I know.
Soooo help me out peeps! What do YOU use as a natural remedy to a dry or soar throat? Any family recipes handed down from Great Aunt Jane? A trick you moms swear by? Let me know :)
P.S. Anyone want to write an essay on Thomas Hobbes Leviathan for me? preferably by Friday? pretty please? come on....I'll make you some brownies **bats lashes** ;)
