Ok. We all know that being a mother is sometimes hard. When you have kids that are sick, it makes it even harder. But what do you do when kids are sick, husband is starting the "sick sloth" routine, and you're denying the fact that you might be coming down with something?
I for one DENY, DENY, DENY!!! To self-medicate I smoother all my food with Tabasco, continue eating regularly, and ensure I have pleny of water and rest.
3 days later if that doesn't help, I whip out some Tylenol, Theraflu, and hot tea.
If that doesn't work by the following week either wait another week to see if I can just "fight" it out of me but still make an appointment to see the doctor. Doctor appointment is usually the week following (go figure) and by then I feel alot better and not even go to the doctor.
The next week, I cancel the appointment the day prior and what do you know, my daughter brought home another bug from preschool.
How do you remedy your illnesses?
