Mostly Down

Not so good last night and today. The nasty bug has retreated but the chest thing is settling in despite the antibiotics. I am going to book another appointment. That is all I have to say tonight really. No thoughts. No activities. A day of sleeping and being over-sensitive.

But I am going on holiday next year! To the lovely Lake District with all my family and F and S. Will be lovely!


  1. I sincerely hope you get better, but aren't antibiotics much better than all that holistic nonsense and crystal malarky.

  2. Oh Rose...this is terrible that you still feel so ill. I'm sending you lots of hugs and healing light for a speedy recovery.
    As for the Lake District...YEAH! Me and Suzi are only a stones throw away...well a couple of hours anyway. Perhaps we can meet up???? Lots of lovely special magical places there! Castle Rigg Stone Circle and Long Meg and her daughters....hmmmm something to look forward to for sure.

    Love and hugs,
    Sue xxx

  3. I am on the fence. I believe in both and think there is a time and a place for both. My Mum is both a herbalist and a nurse so I grew up with both working well together.

    Antibiotics are amazing things. They save so many people and things that so many would have died from are no longer deadly. In times gone by I would have grown up deaf from all the ear infections I used to get.

    There is more to the body than treating the occasional symtpoms though and sometimes the holistic approach is much much better. Particularly for those nasty subtle things that cause all sorts of odd problems. Holistic medicine is much, much more likely to get to the root cause. The body is a system and everything is linked. This is one of the reasons Chinese medicine can be so sophisticated.

    We used to believe the Native American Indians were deluded for thinking everything was made of energy but in fact they were right. I suspect western medicine will in time come to incorporate some of the subtleties of other systems, just like it appreciates herbalism from which many of it's drugs come.

    If I can't sleep I would rather have a cup of chamomile tea than a sleeping pill.... And holistic medicine helped cure my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome when western medicine washed it's hands of it.

    Everything in it's place and a place for everything...

  4. That told 'em....nice response, Sistah..I would have probably been rather rude...*grin*

    Oh Dear One...do feel better...sending you lots of love and healing energy...and Savannah popped something in the mail for you today ;).

    The Lake District? *sigh* Birthplace of my Nanna...I'll have to find out the address and perhaps you can wander by her birth-house...;)

    Lucky duck.


  5. So right Rose. Who is this nasty "crap" person? Takes all kinds I guess. Hope you feel bette soon. "hugs"

  6. Thank you my Lovelies. Mel, the lakes is fairly big so it does kind of depend whereabouts she lived but if I can, I will.....

    Send me the address! XXX

  7. Hi, I came across your blog thanks to a 'friend' we seem to have in common - a certain 'charming' blog detective. He's certainly doing a wonderful job putting me in touch with all these wonderful/interesting blogs. Enjoyed visiting, my best wishes for a speedy recovery.

  8. Hello! He certainly is an interesting character isn't he! *laugh*. You are most welcome here!
