  2. Bendy straws
  3. A bed with clean sheets
  4. An electric kettle
  5. Hot water bottles
  6. The understanding and forbearance of your dog, who will have to adjust to abbreviated walks and extended naps while your symptoms persist
  7. Steaming hot showers
  8. Whiskey, lemon + honey
  9. Slippers
  10. Patience
