I feel worse today. If I get any worse than *this*, I am going to have to go to the doctor. Which of course means an urgent care clinic on the weekend. Hoping I turn the corner soon. I am coughing like crazy and getting lightheaded when I cough. I just want to sleep and sleep. Now is the time I wish my kids had a grandparent or an aunt or uncle I could send them to so I could just SLEEP.
I am kind of dizzy and very sore across my shoulders and back for no good reason.
Last night even though I didn't feel well I managed to throw together a stir fry for the family. It was so good but I just could not eat more than a few bites. It was beef and lots of veggies, with brown rice for the kids and cauliflower rice for me. (Lest you think I slaved over a hot stove in my state of sickness, I'll tell you that I'd made the cauliflower rice several days ago and the brown rice was just a bag you microwave, so it wasn't hard). It was just too chunky and hard on the stomach. I feel like I need stuff that is easy to digest, warm, smooth...
This morning I will have pumpkin ricotta as usual. I've just been warming it in the microwave instead of cooking it on the stove and that works just fine. I think I am going to cave and drink some orange juice. I think my body is asking for it... carbs and all. Some kind of chicken soup sounds good for later but I am in no condition to make it, so will try and ask someone to pick some up for me.
