So I was sick before I left on holiday… then was ok for a couple of days… now I have a cold. Seriously, some days my body is a huge disappointment to me. Not in the way that it looks, but in the way that it has a tendency to malfunction. I wrote about my struggles with mental health, but ties into that are my lifelong chronic and autoimmune diseases. My immune system is a gong show. If someone coughs within a 30 km radius of me, I will likely end up here – staring at a pile of pills and remedies willing them to make me functional. …
What are your go to cold remedies? Any recommendations?
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!

This has been me the past week, I’m entirely convinced my immune system just doesn’t even try anymore. I drink green tea with honey and turmeric and get vic (anti-congestion rub) and put it on the soles of my feet with socks on. Other than that rest, and lots of it! X
