On Sunday I started to feel a little bit under the weather, and it was my old nemesis - My tonsils. Whenever I'm ill it usually starts with a sore throat, which is really annoying and painful; particularly if it spreads to my ears. At that point I usually just want to chop my head off just above my shoulders, because the rest of me seems to be totally fine.
This time I have deployed the three main weapons in my self medication aresenal:
- Throat lozenges (in the UK - Lockets. In the US - Ricola)
- Tea (PG Tips, lime tea, lemon and ginger with honey)
- Alka Seltzer : Cold Formula
Those three things plus a lot of sleep usually help, and having slept for most of today I am feeling better.
I can't really complain though because I haven't been even remotely unwell for over eighteen months (I don't think you can count being pregnant as being ill) and, even better, neither Doc C or Eva seem to have caught anything. That is a huge relief all around.
