I've got the flu. (sigh, cough, cough, cough) I’m coughing, my head is filled with mucus and my tummy is roiling. Yep! That’s the flu alright. I got my Flu Shot faithfully the last week in October as I have done every year for ever. But this year I got the flu. A dear friend sent me the following advice but it came too late for me. So, I am passing it on to my Blog Buddies and hope you follow it to the letter. I know if I had I wouldn’t be this unhappy mass of germs that I am right now.
With my sincere best wishes for your continuing good health, Brenda Bee
How To Avoid The FLU
Eat right! Make sure you get your daily dose of fruits and veggies. Take your vitamins and bump up your vitamin C.
Get plenty of exercise because exercise helps build your immune system. Walk for at least an hour a day, go for a swim, take the stairs instead of the elevator, etc.
Wash your hands often. If you can't wash them, keep a bottle of antibacterial stuff around.
Get lots of fresh air. Open doors & windows whenever possible.
Try to eliminate as much stress from your life as you can.
Get plenty of rest.
Take the doctor's approach.
Think about it...
When you go for a shot, what do they do first?
They Clean your arm with alcohol...
Because Alcohol KILLS GERMS.
I walk to the liquor store. (exercise)
I put lime in my Corona ...(fruit)
Celery in my Bloody Mary (veggies)
Drink outdoors on the bar patio. (fresh air)
Tell jokes, laugh....(eliminate stress)
Then pass out. (rest)
The way I see it...
If you keep your alcohol levels up,
flu germs can't get you!
