Believe it or not, I’m still trying to shake this nasty bug that I got about 3 weeks ago, or maybe this is week 4…I’ve lost track. Dominique from 4wallsandaview might be able to tell me since I sent it via blogsphere to her 🙂 Mwah! Love you chicky 😉
My fatigue level has been over the top, and it’s been impossible to keep myself out of bed. So, with my heating pad, blanket and my daughter (she’s my shadow), I spent the day in bed. What’s really frustrating is that I can’t doze off during the day because my legs keep twitching. A friend of mine brought up restless leg syndrome awhile back when we were talking about this, and I think he might be right. At night, it’s fine because I’m heavily sedated. Unfortunately, I don’t have that option during the day because I’m alone with my 3 year old, and on the odd chance my son needs me, I need to make sure that I’m able to drive.
Back to this very stubborn virus, which has now settled in my chest. I take "Ivy Leaf Syrup" which I swear by, and the congestion was clearing, until I ran out, about a week ago. Finally yesterday, I went to the health food store to buy some more, but discovered that they are sold out. Not only is the store sold out, I’m informed, the distributor for this product has had it on back order for about 3 months. Typically, I keep a healthy stock of this stuff, but with all 4 of us getting sick simultaneously, we quickly depleted our supply.
Today, I stopped in at another health food store, which I know usually carries a limited amount. Of course my expectations weren’t very high, as this stuff can be tricky to access on a good day. I was ecstatic when I saw 7 boxes on the shelf!!!! I bought 4 🙂 So hopefully, this supply will last us until all the back orders on this product are filled!
With any luck, now that I can resume treatment, I can nip this in the butt, once and for all!
Hope everyone is having a good evening!
