1 What to do when sick on Fri May 01, 2009 2:00 am

Crying or Very sad Well People I am wondering what I should do about being sick....I am getting my water in and can handle about 1 shake a day, but having a hard time eating solid protein. I am also getting major headaches that aren't responding to tylenol...Have already taken 6 total for the day and it's not helping at all....Plus my throat is sore and swallowing the food hurts too much...Any ideas....

I hope you called the docs.

Ya know we're not Docs... and well.. Mike might tell you to go dunk your head in a bowl of luke warm chicken noodle soup. And well.. how helpful would that be Smile

3 Just stick to protein as much as possible... on Thu Jul 16, 2009 6:59 am

... and liquids. I remember the 1st time I called Jody (2+ years ago when Dianne and her ran the program) and asked if I could have crackers or toast or applesauce and she said "No way" - if anything, go back to broth and sugar free jello is what she suggested.

about the only way I am getting protein through beans or lunch meat slices...I am beginning to wonder if it might not be a stomache issue..guess I need to call Dr Nichols and see what he has to say..

Thanks guys

the original posting was on 04/30/09.
If you're still sick, I really think you need to talk to some medical professional people.

I mean that's along time of "being sick".
I tend to usually only give myself a few days to "get over it" and then I head into a doctor to get medicine or advice or whatever.

just my two cents.
