#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)
