If only I didn't start

Friday, September 09, 2016

Suffering through a stuffy nose and sore throat. Is it a cold? Allergies? Whatever. Eating sugar like it's a panacea. More like adding fuel to the fire. Or refined carbs to the inflammation. Don't mind me; it's the cold medicine talking.

Reading a children's chapter book with my son. One of the characters habitually beats her head against hard things. "Doesn't it hurt?" her friends ask. She tells them it does hurt, yes. "Then why do you do it?" they ask. "Because it feels so good when I stop," she tells them.

    Well we CAN stop. Remind yourself that you really, truly, CAN.
    And as the others said: get rest!

    Very good question and hmmmm, I guess I feel that way a lot of the time. Hope you feel better soon. We have the proverbial back to school bug here too. Not fun!

    Yes, I think you need some rest. It sounds like you might have the flu. You would be best served to get some sleep and maybe better reading material for your little one!
