#910 I forgot to get my flu shot and that’s why I am drinking chicken soup now

I went to a doctor.

I caught a cold 2 days ago. Since I didn’t get a flu shot, I was worried if I got a flu. Then, I went to a doctor yesterday morning. My fever was 36.9℃. I asked the doctor whether I got a flu or not. He said, “You don’t have a flu, because your temperature is low.” I was relieved to hear that. He gave me 4 days of medicine and told me to get plenty of rest and drink lots of water.

Am I really not having a flu?

But my physical condition got even worse after visiting the doctor. I felt cold and feverish. I had a sore throat and a running nose. Am I really not having a flu? I felt like I was almost dying.

Drink chicken soup when you got a cold

Then last night, I made a chicken soup. I heard that chicken soup is good for cold. I put green onion and a lot of ginger in it. It tasted very good and I felt that my body was getting warmer. I really recommend drinking chicken soup when you got a cold.
Here is a link “Will chicken soup really cure your cold?” from BBC that explains all the benefits of drinking chicken soup.

Last but not least

Chicken soup helped me feel better when I was suffering from the cold. Of course the medicine from the doctor was very important as well.

And last but not least, I should have gotten a flu shot before the flu season.

Take good care of yourself!(2016.2.10)

のどが痛いときは、首に長ネギを巻くといいんですって。
同期の子が、小さいころやられたことがあると言ってました。
効果は???だけどね。
チキンスープ、いいねえ。
心も体も温まる感じで。
それで風邪はもう良くなったのかな?
うがい、手洗いで、乗り切ってね。
お大事にー。

首ネギは本当らしいよ。この前、テレビで観た。←元祖テレビっ子

風邪はまだ治ってませんが、おかげさまで熱は下がりました。本当に辛くてインフルかと思っちゃった。
チキンスープはね、骨から免疫エキスを取るのがミソだね。
飲んだらなんだかスッキリした気持ちになりました。今日も作りました。
Yokoさんも風邪には気をつけてね。
