Blarg, pukey hyena

I've spent most of this month being sick :( There was a really bad week, and a kind of bad following week, and a not-so-hot third week, where I had the cold-like sinus thing that's been rampaging through Austin lately. With the help of some semiprescribed antibiotics I was able to get over most of the worst of it, but had another week of low-grade sniffles and coughs.

Yesterday, got some sort of stomach bug, couldn't eat a thing all day. Kind of dizzy and weak. Still a little dizzy, but overall, much better.

Yeesh! Hard month!

Stress=sick? I have a friend with a stressful IT job who is constantly floating in and out of sickness, at least for the past several months. o_o

Either way, yikes.

Yeah, I usually have a pretty robust immune system, but I think some of that is failing as I approach (shudder) middle age. And the last four months have been pretty high-stress, in a low-key sort of way.

Ginseng (standardized 4%, usually) and vitamin C! It's amazing for helping with illness or boosting the immune system.

Semi-prescribed antibiotics? I love it. That pretty much accounts for half of my medication usage.

*snicker* well, my partner Whines caught the same thing at the same time I did, so I just ate half his antibiotics, and made him get a refill :) I'll look into the ginseng blend, I'm popping vitimin C every day already...
