So, I had the flu last week, and in between feverishly hallucinating about unicorns and coughing up both of my lungs twice, I was clear-headed enough to think about all of the things I can’t live without when I’m sick and that y’all need to know about. Because I’m a giver. You’re welcome.
Sweet Leaf Mint and Honey Green Tea. Major shout out to this Austin TX company!! Previously, I thought mint and honey was best on a hot hot day (so refreshing!) but it turns out, it’s also very soothing when it feels like you swallowed glass. If you can’t buy this in your local grocery store, order it from Amazon. But only if you like things that are delicious.
Puffs Plus with Lotion. Yes, they charge more for the lotion and yes, you need these unless you want your nose to look like you took a large piece of sandpaper to it.
A Hoodie. Am I the only person who wants to keep a hood pulled over their head when they have the flu? I don’t know why but it makes me feel better. I’m currently (and by currently, I mean since I was 18) rocking a lime green three-quarter sleeved hoodie that doesn’t even have a tag anymore so I can’t tell you where I got it, but it’s awesome and you should get one too.
A Guilty Pleasure TV Show. Get thy-self a Netflix account immediately if you don’t already have one, and then spend your flu days watching all the TV you wouldn’t normally watch. My guilty pleasures? Hart of Dixie and Pretty Little Liars.
I hope none of you are sick right now, but if you are, use my favorite things to heal yourself Also, see a doctor. I mean, probably my favorite things will heal you, but they can’t write you a prescription for antivirals.
