Baby it’s cold outside

January 31st, 2013 § 1 comment

I’ve been sick in bed for the last five days, and I truly think I’m going to go stir crazy.  So many things are happening around me right now, and instead of facing them like a grown-up, my body chooses to shut down completely and hide away under an enormous down comforter and pile of tissues.

It’s not healthy. I know this. I’m working on it.

Denmark is a difficult country to catch the flu in if, for example, you are an American like myself who is used to relying on cold medicine to get you through the sneezing, coughing misery.  In Denmark, the doctors say “drink lots of tea”, and so, without any other medicinal options, that’s what you do.  I’ve been through two boxes so far this week – first one of licorice tea and then one of “Sleepytime”.  I mix in a few cloves and anise, then stir in a spoonful of honey and coconut oil.  Miracle worker on a sore throat: let me tell you.

But guys… it’s no NyQuil.
