im sick

Monday, June 24, 2013

I have bronchitis and sinus infection. Meh... I feel crappy and I'm hungry. Dangerous combo! Why can't I be the type who loses their appetitie?

Anyway, wanted you to know I'm here, I'm recovering and I'm getting better now that I have meds.

Hope you are all OK!

    Feel better soon! I too am the kind of person who keeps on eating when sick and I totally have wished I could be the kind of person that loses her appetite instead! :) But no, not when sick, not in the first trimester of pregnancy with twins - when everyone else is SUPER nauseous while I just couldn't stop eating - not when sad, not when angry... there is never a time when I think "I really don't feel like eating right now." Oh well. We're just that much more awesome for losing weight anyway despite very healthy appetites, and that kind of response probably bodes well for our futures when we're elderly and ill - it's the people who don't eat that don't recover as well! I am all about silver linings. :)

    Oh, I wrote on your page before reading this. Yes, some of us manage to eat when we're sick. I was with a friend today and we went to this oyster bar that has a happy hour ($2/oyster) and we had 9 each but she declined a glass of wine because her stomach was upset this morning. I'm like: omg, oysters might not be the best choice right now, but she's like me (and you), she still wanted to eat those oysters!

So, here's the Chinese medicine advice for coughs (including bronchitis): asian pears. Even though you are on medication, they really help your lungs heal. Eat a couple of them every day if you can find them, and if not, Trader Joe's pear juice.

    Darn, darn, darn! I hate that you have this junk! Hope you recover very soon & can distract yourself, or sleep or drink tons of liquid to calm the hunger monster!

Get well sooooooooooooooon!
