Hi Bella Family:
The last time I got the flu was in September of this year, felt it coming my way a few days ago, finally arrived yesterday morning.
Okay, did the usual theraflu routine, but was wondering how you handle the flu?
Personally I know that when my "immune" system is drained from either too much stress, not eating right or not sleeping enough - mother nature gets my attention really quickly and forces me to slow down.
Yep, had big plans to do some laundry (hand wash, put outside on clothes line) - but knew that if I insisted on doing this yesterday after dragging home from the office - it would only prolong my misery.
I can giggle now, but years ago as a single parent (one child, a girl now 25) - I could not slow down when my body said to - and spent too many weeks in misery.
Now at age 53, with a wonderful 57 year old man who forced me to get in the bed yesterday - I have the luxury of "listening" to what my body is telling me. Slow down, get well and go back and do things differently this time around or you will be right back in the bed.
Now your turn...
