Rainy January Friday

Friday, January 11, 2013

DD feeling somewhat better today,, still in pain with skin, but headache gone.

After work today I schlepped my fifty ton humidifier up my basement stairs to the landing to put in car to get repaired. Not sure what the heck is going on with it,, only five years old..

We are being very careful in public, no extra time in public places to be exposed to nasty germs.. We both got the flu shot, but she is highly susceptible to everything, I cannot afford to miss any work time, so being the paranoid that I am, we stick close to home. I would make somebody a perfect hermit. Lock me in a closet with a potty, light and books, I am good to go for months. Upbringing kept us locked in our bedrooms most of the time, so I am used to it..
bad side:being abused by mother, good side: no fear of anything in life but building fires and spiders. No fear of water, dark, close places, heights, any animal (I actually swam through a jellyfish nursery in the Pacific Ocean, at the beach in Grenada, then swam back to the sand,, never got stung once!!) or ethnic group, public places, mean people, authority,etc.

My main fear is for my daughter, that there will be nothing to help her when I am gone... no $$.. that lazy people are no using $ that will be needed for those who need it later...

    DH and I had the flu shot and I am still coughing, it just will not go away.
I feel ok just kind of exhausted when it goes on for a long time. Takes tome to catch the breath i have an inhaler that is helping .
The skin and scalp pain is really annoying just combing the hair hurts. I am glad she is improving and I hope she is fully recovered very soon. emoticon emoticon

    I'm glad DD is feeling somewhat better. That flu is a dozy. It hasn't hit Calif. big time yet, but I suppose it will. Scary. Stay well!!
p.s. I am a bit of a loaner as well.

    At least there's 1 thing you and I ahve in common... Jellyfish. OMG they hurt! I got stung by several.

Your daughter knows where I am if she needs anything. You need to talk your Dr. into signing good papers for disability. Yes I'd consider her disabled.

DD is under the weather today, not feeling well at all, did not even greet me at the door when I came home from work! She is sick!
Trying to pay some mom bills again, finding more things in the basement for the garage sale.. I never come upstairs empty-handed.. filling a box to take there tomorrow.. Hoping DD feels better tomorrow..
We usually run errands together after I get out of work,, we will see.. she has been sleeping for hours,,, wish I could take her pain away..

    So sorry DD is under the weather, I think sleeping is good when you are sick. DH slept for hours i sure wish I could do it but it needs a sledge hammer some nights to get to sleep.
I am doing much better with the melatonin though.
I digress sorry I hope she is better very soon. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon

    Hope DD feels better soon. Does she have a headache? I have been thinking of going through our garage and sorting out odds and ends for a yard sale. This time of year is windy though, so I might hold off for a couple of months.

Sitting her e listening to Connie Francis greatest hits.. humming along..
that woman had a set of pipes!! Concetta Rosemarie Franconero! Compared to any female vocalist today, she is lame`, they are burlap!!

I enjoy discovering old and new things, researching the five W's and enjoying the journey !!
Hers is the ultimate,, kind of like the Beatles and Sinatra combined.. one person did all of that,.. millions upon millions of albums worldwide.. multiple languages!!
okay, had to jot that.. so proud of her..

    You just gave me a good idea for some new music! I've been listening to Sinatra, Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald for weeks. I'll have to get some Connie Francis. Thanks for the idea1

Connie is my favourite female vocalist next to Anne Murray (have to stay true to Canada you know). Such innocent times when she was a huge hit, wish we could get some of that innocence and trust back so our kids could enjoy it.

Tuesday's Thought

Taken from Onehealthynut.com

Original Strep throat remedy recipe that works!

1T pure honey
1/4t cayenne pepper
4 cloves garlic,pressed .

Those are the proportions, but you'll need more than that, so take 4T honey, 1t cayenne pepper,16 cloves garlic, pressed. Mix together. Take 1/2t to 1t of formula every 30-60 minutes.
Don't wash it down-- let the honey coat the throat, then the cayenne, being a rubefacient, will bring the blood into the area, then your immune system will be stimulated with the garlic. Garlic is an anti-bacterial,anti-fungal, and anti-viral, so anything that may be causing the sore throat, the garlic, along with the cayenne and the honey coating the areas, will take care of the problem.

How long does it take to get over strep throat with the standard medical procedure? Ten days. This herbal remedy will generally get over strep throat in 24 hours.
Take what you like and leave the rest.

I am just posting this for anybody who wishes to try it.. I am not a doctor or chemist.

Colder Monday

Monday, January 07, 2013

It seems like a lot of sparkers are in the throes of, or recovering from flu, or some stomach virus(flu is respiratory). Yesterday I came across a recipe from sparker sherrylyn that is simple and homeopathic, for strep throat treatment.. in 24 hours. It is supposed to get rid of it in one day if you follow instructions.

It has three ingredients, cayenne pepper, honey, and crushed garlic. You swallow a teaspoon every 30-60 minutes for 24 hours and the strep throat is gone!
If and when I ever get the symptoms, I will try this.. anybody wants the recipe, let me know.. she had he link on her blog on yesterdays message board. obviously, we are not doctors, But each ingredient has the healing properties for such a thing.. take what you liked and leave the rest...

    Dunno about the honey (which I love, but which my blood glucose doesn't!) but I'm a real believer in the capsicum (sp?) in cayenne and ...whatever... is in garlic. Sometimes I think you can't beat natural cures for what ails ya!
