What a beautiful day!!! [Nov. 10th, 2004|01:54 pm]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Man, I'm still feeling sick - I don't know what's wrong with me! I mean, it's just a flu/allergy/cold combo, I know that, but it just seems to be draaaaagging on and on. I've been drinking lots of fluids, thera-flu, green tea, taking my vitamins, all of the usual remedies, etc. I'm honestly feeling much better today, but I still keep getting coughing fits, etc. Ugh. Hey though - I finally have HEALTH INSURANCE now!!! Huzzah! (It's the first time I've had it for years, woo!!). So if for some reason I'm not better in the next couple of days, I can actually go to a doctor if I need to, hehe. I need to make an appointment there soon anyways. Luckily it works with the local doctor here in town and at the Celebration hospital too - how convenient!

It's sure a beautiful day out though - it's about 80 degrees - just perfect, and very breezy. We've got the windows open and the fresh air is so nice and smells sweet. I love Florida so much =) I used to dread fall/winter, but here it's just so nice!

I'm working on a commission right now (it's a private one, so it's not up on the webcam - sorry folks!). If I finish it later today I will probably start a new painting, and if I do I will post a link to the webcam of course =)

Listen to Matty! Slow down! Don't rush yourself and get better because rushing is not going to help very much. :P lol And hey Matt!

Whew, welcome to the flu season! Here's hoping you're feeling better soon -- it's terrible to be sick when there's so much to be done! And congrats on the health insurance -- that's bound to give you some peace of mind.....

AWWW Jas, Matty is right you need to slow down :( You're such a fragile little fae and I hate to see you sick >< Get plenty of rest and drink much fluids and just RELAX girl!

Although the doctor may not be a bad idea you COULD have an infection silly ^.~

Wow, still sick, that is bad.
Maybe you should get some anti-biotics? Those always help to get a flu virus flushed out.

Hey Jas! I kinda know how you feel right about now but have you tried honey mixed with lemon juice? I have been drinking it and it seems to make me feel better. I don't think it tastes to good but it helps! ^_^

And speaking of the weather its really odd for it to be this hot in November. But still if its warm I'm happy along with others. Its just going to be a hard winter because its so hot now.

With hopes that you feel better very soon

Jasmine Matt is right you need to slow down...

The flu is a tricky bug. You need to rest Jasmine and keep drinking,hot fluids and chicken soup helps. Matt is right. It may take up till two weeks to get rid of it. What has me worried about you is the cough,I hope it is not bronchitis which you can get from the flu. Get better and feel well soon. Your Friend Sharon Hello Matt, Hope you are well. Also honey helps the cough in tea or by the spoonful. Chin Up..:)

Theres a bit of an epidemic nasty flu thingie going around on both sides of the continent, with just those symptoms. Rest up and get Matty to bring you lots of honey and lemon drinks, you'll be right as rain in no time.

Hope you are feeling better again soon sweetheart.

hope you feel better soon.

It's a good thing you have health insurance now. I know I used to do without too, and may have to again, and I was always pretty lucky, but it's much better knowing you have that safety net.

Hopefully though, it's just a cold and you'll recover soon anyway.

Me too!

I had it too! Its been horrible. It started with my throat. It hurt sooooo bad. Then a cough... The kind that when you were in school and couldn't quit coughing for anything. ( usually in the middle of a test)
Much better now. I hope you are too!

Re: Me too!

Oh my, that sounds like what I had! I kept getting coughing fits at inopportune times, hehe.

I'm feeling much improved today though!
