I imagine that yesterday I probably looked like death itself. I certainly didn’t feel quite human. Or maybe I felt REALLY human with all of the frailty that implies. I hurt so much that I did the bare minimum shower, pulled my messy hair back, no makeup, and wore the most comfortable clothes that I could without looking like I was wearing pajamas. My normal self is energetic and I’m always walking fast. Yesterday I was moving at a snails pace.
While it’s going to take a few days to fully recover, it’s amazing what 24 hours can do. And not so much the antibiotics yet, but everything else. I came home from the doctor yesterday and took the first dose of meds, including mucinex and Tylenol, and then I slept for 2 1/2 hours. Last night before bed I also pulled out the netipot and essential oils. By this morning I felt much better and could actually take a normal shower. And put on makeup! Add a vibrant color and I almost look normal!
I don’t enjoy getting sick, but apparently that’s what it took to get me to slow down and just give myself a moment to rest. Self-care? Check! ✔️ Remember to take care of yourselfs folks!
What do y’all do to rest and recharge?
