So I had outpatient surgery yesterday and life sucks. No caffeine, not even secondhand smoke (so I can’t hang out with my bestie History Laced) and I’m on all sorts of pain medication so I’m avoiding herbal teas. I had to sleep sitting up and kept my bf up all night from whimpering and wishing for lidocain or morphine because Vicodin sucks.

Anywho, this is actually tea related. I cant have any caffeine, but that intubation was very rough and my throat hates me. Anybody know a good caffeine-free soothing tea that I could get TODAY?

Aweee sorry girl. I hope you get better soon and that the surgery went without a hitch!
Maybe try some peppermint tea? Can you have that?

Oooh. I didn’t think of peppermiing tea, that sounds perfect! Surgery went very well, save for waking up swinging apparently. :P I’m just very uncomfortable.

Feel better soon! I like Traditional Medicinals Throat Coat tea for when I’m sick.

Peppermint, lemon or ginger are always my friend. Thoroughly does with honey if you can stand the sweetness. As always, beware potential interactions with medications. Feel better!

So my boyfriend is making me a berry rooibos from Adiago Teas I got in my first swap. I am going to add some lemon and watch Hamlet til I pass out.

Chrysanthemum is my favourite when I feel sick and need something soothing.
