I’m on an amazing new diet… it’s called “having a sore throat”. Sure, the side effects are painful but it’s really effective in cutting down the amount of food I eat.
It started Friday night with a scratchy throat. I woke up Saturday with every inch of my body aching. My skin hurt, I was nauseous, my head was pounding and my throat was on fire. My hubby had to work but luckily my parents were still in town so they took the kids for most of the day and let me sleep.
Sunday morning the aching had stopped but my throat went from fire to lava. It hurt to talk and my kids thought it was hilarious that I was whispering. I had already tried three different throat remedies and nothing was helping. My parents came over in the afternoon and my dad offered to go find me something that would work – although it might taste nasty he warned. Ever notice that when you’re in pain you’ll do anything to make it stop? By the evening I was able to talk again. I was bummed that I missed out on the last two days my parents were here. But I am grateful that they were here to enjoy the kids and let me rest!!
Today I’m back down to fire in the throat. The mornings are the worst. Because of the pain my body refuses to swallow while I’m sleeping which leads to a lot of drool (ew!) and a very dry throat come morning. I’m sure a humidifier would help.
I wonder if you can put the throat numbing spray into the humidifier??
