I’ve gone all winter without any cold or flu.
I tend to not go out much. Bible study, Youth Group, and Church. Of course the grocery store.
We have a wood stove so I am able to air out the house often.
I get fresh air by going to feed my chickens.
I don’t want to get sick. Moms don’t have time to get sick.
This last weekend I got the chance to ‘run away’ with The Principal to Whitefish, MT.
Monday morning, you guessed it, A COLD!
I posted on Facebook I would be playing hermit until it passed. I was being selfish and didn’t want to share.
I got a couple of thank you’s.
I had one friend say she does the same…She’s not being a sissy. She just doesn’t want to spread it around.
So I am taking my Emergen-C. Keeping my tissues with lotion near by.
I will embrace this down time with reading.
I will be researching natural cold remedies and stocking up on those herbs and vitamins.
- Ginseng and Eleuthero
- Licorice root
Do you have a go-to remedy for the common cold? Do you avoid crowds during the winter and early spring to avoid catching one?
