How To Beat The Flu In 72 Hours.

Woke up today feeling smashing! (And I mean that in a positive way.) After coming down with the flu on Thursday, I have managed to bang through the rough stage of the illness and am raring to get out of the house tomorrow.

Yes, I can't wait to get back to work. But it's partly because my VPN has not been working this weekend.

Now, I don't know for certain that my recovery time was speedier than anyone else's... But let's just say that Thursday I couldn't even get out of bed once I decided I was sick... And today, I was out of bed at 7am. (Which was really 6am, give the whole "spring ahead" shit we had to do today.) I got up, showered, did more laundry and even went grocery shopping.

So, you may be wondering, "How did she come around so quickly?"

Well, here's all you need to fight the flu...
  1. Orange juice. Two gallons.
  2. Sparkling water to mix in the orange juice (cuz straight orange juice from the carton is gross and thick.)
  3. Strawberry Poptarts. (I only eat these after they've been heated in the toaster. And I also only eat them when I am sick.)
  4. Theraflu, every four hours, three times a day.
  5. Four pairs of yoga pants.
  6. Four tank tops.
  7. Four long-sleeved tees.
  8. Thick socks.
  9. Queen-sized bed with Simmons Beauty Rest Mattress, all to your self. (Send significant other to Florida.)
  10. Netflix DVDs and Sex and the City DVDs.
  11. Whole wheat toast with cinnamon sugar.
  12. Epsom salts and eucalyptus essential oil. (Soak once a day for 30 minutes.)
  13. Sleep. As much as possible.
This is all I did. And today, I have a lot of energy. Probably because all I did was sleep for the previous few days.

Speaking of sleep though... Last night was a rough night. But I'll write about that in another post. I hope none of you come down with the flu. It sucks.
