This week I went to a support group. It is a wonderful group and I attended before I moved to my little apartment.
One piece of advice, when it came to the topic of self-care, was when you have an infection cut the ends off of an onion and peel the outer layers off, put it on a plate or something protective and put it in the room you will be sleeping in. The onion will supposedly absorb the infection. Well, I was pretty skeptical, but I had heard that you should never eat an onion that has been sitting in the fridge, but throw out any leftover pieces after you cook each time, because of the same reason.
Thursday I was so sick I didn’t even bother to get out of bed. I had a terrible throbbing headache and what I believed was a true sinus infection once again. I had to get out of bed to get medication and aspirins, and remembered to buy a couple of large onions. Let me just say that I did it and I really think it works. I woke up today feeling so much better than yesterday and haven’t even had to take any aspirins so far. If only I had tried this all day Thursday. I am going to do it again tonight.
Good and healing thoughts to you all.
