Something’s Not Right

I dragged myself to the doctor’s office yesterday after a sleepless, breathless, wheezing, cough-filled night. My husband was diagnosed with bronchitis less than 2 week ago. He’s okay now but it seems that it’s my turn.

When I’m sick, I crave for all the things that’s bad for me – French fries, Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk, Oreo cheesecake, icy-cold drinks – and none of that chicken soup or porridge thing. Right now, I could use some Famous Amos chocolate chip and pecans cookies. I really don’t know why but I don’t think alone in this (craving junk food when unwell).

Chicken soup ice cream?

Posting will resume when I’m better. Or when I get my ice-cream. :o

(Apparently I also have a habit of drawing when I’m sick)

Get well soon, and keep in mind that the rule is, "starve a fever, feed a cold." Assuming you don't have a fever, no one ever specified what you should feed that cold. It sounds too good to be true, but there's a theory that when you crave a food it's because your body needs something that's in that food. Admittedly ice cream may not be the best thing for a cold, but Famous Amos cookies and french fries might be just what the doctor ordered.

I am aware I'm probably talking cliche here, but I'll coin that phrase anyway, and say that life is too short to feel guilty. Eat what you crave for and get well soon!!

Holy mackerel. We're coming up on ten days here. That must be one serious cold. Get well soon, Ginger!

[...] a big tub of Ben and Jerry’s and a whole family-sized bar of Toblerone. Has my doctor been reading my blog? PS: No, doc, I didn’t give in to my cravings. :[ Related Posts: An Apple A Day, [...]
