Oh boy am I sick. I don’t think there is a single place on my body that doesn’t hurt right now. I’m on day two of no voice and a horribly sore throat. Parenting without being able to speak is really difficult. Really difficult.
I feel so dang bad I think I may have the flu 🙁
All of us are sick, actually. The kids have been sick for a couple weeks now. I seem to have it the worst, probably because I don’t get sleep and I’m breastfeeding so my body is completely worn out.
I’m crossing my fingers and toes and praying that I feel better soon. I’m doing well emotionally but I want things back to normal! Normal was hard enough! lol
I’ve had about ten cups of tea a day the last four days. I can tolerate being alive as long as I have a cup of tea in my hand. Within seconds of running out of tea to sip my throat hurts so bad I can’t stand it.
Another helpful thing is hot showers and baths. The steam is so soothing! Yesterday the second Allan got home from work I asked him if I could escape to the bath to relax with Ember while he fed the kids dinner.
