I got hit with a traditional non-RONA illness this week, so all blogs I had the intention of writing went out the fucking window.
Instead, I’ll cover some shit I do when I am sick.
Start with the obvious shit. Saltines. I like the homestyle pogresso chicken soup. But the curveball….like when my illness hits the peak, and I’m coming down. McD’s.
I don’t know what it is. The biblical sodium content? The standardized foodstuffs? Whatever it is, a 10 piece nugg and fries starts the road of feeling right as rain.
A friend of mine developed this technique during college that I like. Beverage confusion. Throw a bunch of shit at the body so it doesn’t know what to expect. Start with a gatorade, then BAM sprite, then BAM tea, keep rotating beverages.
I definitely use Sprite a ton cause I fine it sort of even keels the body. I also suggest the fucking sick tea over at Starbucks.
Just in case you haven’t had the pleasure of being told about the sick tea, you want a venti mint majesty tea, steeped in lemonade(!), and two honeys.
Be it sore throat or stomach shit, guaranteed to make your shit right as rain.
I have always been a big believer in the number one most curative thing you can watch while ill.
But it has to be bob barker era price is right. LUCKILY, fuckin Pluto TV got you covered.
Sure maybe it is nostalgia to my childhood, but its comfort.
The same with anything else I got going. If its movies, I like real long epics that I watched in high school and can fall asleep during. David Lean shit. Doctor Zhivago. Shit like that.
When it comes to music, I like the dark shit. Like this.
Sort of ambient dark stuff. I embrace the void only in the music when I am ill. I find I come out of it on the other side a bit more…chill….
Well, on that note, I am going to find something bland to eat and go back to watching Bob Barker. Try to keep away from the fall maladies. They are out in full swing.
