Here’s to Good Health…

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.

Hello nzuri!

I have been feeling a bit under the weather for over a month now but instead of me going to the doctor before I felt worst, of course I procrastinated. So when I found myself not being able to breathe, throat on fire, feeling like I’m about to pass out and coughing nonstop, I then dragged myself to urgent care! This all happened last week, with what I’d told you in my my last post “Life”, me being sick topped it off.

I was diagnosed with bronchiolitis, given some antibiotics, coughing syrup and an inhaler! The doctor was astonished when I’d told her how long I’d been feeling bad, I chuckle as she shook her head in disbelief and gave me an eye of disapproval; she looked as thou she wasn’t older than 16, given me an eye! Lol, but I deserved it.

So needless to say this weekend was a bust, I laid around all day Saturday (felt somewhat ok on Sunday), my body felt so exhausted from working so hard that I’d sleep a little, wake up to drink some tea maybe water, go back to sleep, I started reading my book “Becoming” by Michelle Obama, went back to sleep then made some homemade chicken soup and enjoyed a nice hot bowl of warmth.

I like the book so far!
Chicken, kale and mixed vegetable soup! Yummy…

Although I laid in that spot, I got some things done for myself plus fixing my baby girl breakfast, lunch and dinner! Nothing really stops when WE are sick…

My daughter kept checking on me, she’d ask if I needed a cough drop or if I needed her to do something; she would come lye on my lap as well, she is like her dad, very thoughtful and she seemed so concerned. She told my husband whom had to work most of the day as soon as he walked in our home that “mommy has been lying in that one spot all day, she’s really sick”! She sounded as though she was worn out with taking care of me, lol…

Lemon and ginger tea, no sweet added, really good.

I wanted to share this with you because so often we as women, wives, mothers put our health last; I can guarantee you that if any one of my children had showed signs of sickness it wouldn’t have taken me a month to get them to a doctor. I have to do better with taking care of my health so that I can take care of the people in my life whom need me. A change is coming…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I pledge from this day on to take care of my body, health, soul/spirituality and mind better… What about you nzuri, are you taking care of yourself ? Take the pledge with me…

Until next time, thanks for coming to my corner of the internet!!
