So we've had a terrible bout of illnesses this winter. We've had both Strep and influenza. My kids are feeling ok with just a residual cough and my dd occasionally gets nauseous and will vomit and then she's fine. My dh had to go on antibiotics as the strep turned into a scarlet fever. I am still feeling really wrung out. I still have a little congestion and an irritated occasional cough. But the irritating symptoms are the residual fatigue and sore muscles. I started to get better last Friday but the symptoms are lasting... What can I do to speed the healing process besides sleep? I took some emergen-C and I am eating even though I'm not really hungry and drinking lots of green tea. I am getting out and doing the regular stuff and trying to keep moving. I am having naps. I really would like to avoid another illness and to start feeling better. Any tips? Should I take some garlic? I did when I was in the middle of it.
