Lurgified

Last night I had a PTSD meltdown, due to a powerful trigger on TV, leaving me drained and worn this morning. Having said that, I also have this stupid cold, my body is aching, and I feel like death on wheels even without the PTSD. I am trying to find anything to take, because I am meant to go meet a lovely person and really shouldn't cry off if at all possible. It occurs to me that my traditional cold cure recipe, as inherited from Dad, is a mighty hot toddy, but even he would blanch at having one before 8.30 am.

My Spanish Gran used to make a kitchen soup full of chicken and cabbage and black pudding and chickpeas. From what I can gather it was basically a huge protein shot. I can almost taste it now. But even if it was in front of me, I couldn't drink it because of the pork - I don't eat anything smart if I can help it.

Stuff to do stuff to do.

God, I'm too gone to even write.

Vitamin C? Don't know whether it's all in the head or whether it really helps, but I find a dose of the slow release stuff makes colds slightly less grim.

Now it's afternoon, at least the hot toddy options is slightly more acceptable too.

Hope you feel well soon. :o)

Thank you for your thoughts
It's actually got worse over the past couple of days. Contac and Lemsip are keeping me going!
