The Sickening Feeling
In a panic to head off the inevitable, I ran to the health food store first thing Thursday morning to get a cure - a throat spray and some "throat" tea. Both tasted terrible and both needed to be used 5 times a day. I was wondering which was worse - being sick or trying to avoid it.
But there is no avoiding being sick. All these products can do is take the edge off a little, relieve the symptoms and maybe shorten the course of things a touch.
So here I sit, Sunday morning with a full blown cold taking over my body. Tissues everywhere, my back hurts, my eyes hurt. I'm miserable. So much for throat tea and throat spray. Nature, I fear, must take its course.
