On my way to recovery

I was battling a bad cough and sore throat for more than a week now. I felt flu-like symptoms on New Year’s Eve. However, the symptoms didn’t progress to flu until two or three days later. The cough was so severe that I end up with a bad case of sore throat. It was painful to swallow. I thought I wouldn’t get better even after taking some medicines. I was just planning to see a doctor (and buy a military coin) this weekend. The medicine gradually works though. I’m thankful that I will not spend a single centavo for a checkup. I’m also glad hubby was here to take care of me (and do the chores for me too).

Allergies and You

That popping their allergy prescription before eating something they know will have them ending up all red and blotchy is not a very healthy practice but has been a common day-to-day activities for most people with allergies to a lot of different food items, most especially fish and sea foods. Although you might certainly feel most deprived if you will not eat these delicious and mouth-watering foods it will always be best to always avoid those food items that you know can be harmful to you, than to be sorry in the end. “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” remember the line? And it does ring true to this day. So instead of eating half-a-serving or skipping the lobster tails, why not skip that dish altogether and settle for the salad or the pasta instead. You wouldn’t want to clog your body with all the anti-allergy prescriptions, plus your body will thank you for it.
