I have “vitiligo”, that is basically lack of pigmentation which actually means that I’m turning into a dalmatian… I have no problem with that but my doctor seemed to have one so she sent me to phototherapy which I have a problem with as I cannot take any medication for anything at all, not even vitamin C! The only thing I’m allowed to take is paracetamol and lately, with these changes of temperatures I keep getting colds so this is my remedy.
- Mandarin and orange juice
- Hot tea
- A lot of whisky
- A paracetamol
- A hot water bottle (this last bit can be changed by a hot lover and lots of sex)
Some people swear by the honey and lemon thing, but really, that lemon thing is to acid for me and I’d have to use the whole jar of honey… I have a sweet tooth and the whisky ensures I go to sleep and leave my nose alone.
