2012 came and went and I never had the need to go to the doctor. Other than regular checkups, I got through an entire year without so much as a sniffle. Last night, I mentioned – as I knocked on wood – that I have been so very lucky that I have not been sick.
Today, I was taking photos for a client on a property in Ocean County. As I was walking back to their office, I felt as though something got caught in my throat and I started coughing…and coughing…and coughing. Cups of water later, I still felt as though I had a cotton ball stuck in my throat. Now, my eyes feel funny and my throat is tight. Gees, why did I EVER say anything about being so darn healthy? I hope doses of hot tea, honey, chicken soup and lots of water will wash this thing away. Jinx!
I wrote a little book about how I stopped having colds in 2004. If you are interested, my website is http://www.howtostopcolds.com
The same thing happened with me, Brenda. I was saying to coworkers that I haven’t been sick for several years because I get monthly massages. BAM!! The scratchy throat and cough started; fluid in my ears followed. One week in January I was out of work more than I was in work. I will never again crow about my great health. Hot tea and soup as well as lots of liquids, plus a humidifier in your room at night will help. A decongestant will prevent fluid in the ears. Hope you’re better soon.
