It’s cold and flu season. And I hate it. After Christmas is over, I’m over winter. The freezing weather, the dormant greenery, and all of the sickness that comes with it is for the (migrating) birds. Give me summer, sunshine and clear sinuses any day. But, since we’re not superhuman, we get sick. (My husband, Chase, would argue that he is superhuman, though…) Red gets sick more than anyone, and while he can easily stay home from school, watch movies all day long and snuggle with the Doo, Mama and Daddy aren’t so lucky. Chase needs to meet deadlines and attend casting callbacks, and my clients’ technical rehearsals and meetings can’t wait, either. We can’t take sick days as easily as our toddler.
Before I was pregnant, DayQuil and NyQuil were my sickness standbys. Now, most everything is off-limits… so while I’m stuck suffering with teas and kleenexes, Chase is free and clear to have his symptoms (runny nose, coughing, congestion and sore throat are his worst ones) nipped in the bud by these awesome medications. After a dose, he’s either snoozing in dreamland (NyQuil, of course!), or up and at ’em, making things happen during the day (DayQuil).
By the time April rolls around, we’re back in our healthy season, and our bottles of DayQuil and NyQuil are tucked into the back of the medicine cabinet, standing by for another flu season or sick day. While I’m always hunting a bargain, you can purchase these symptom-relieving products at Walmart to save some cash and some sick days!
What makes you feel better when you are sick? Do you take medicines, or are you like “pregnant Lindsey” and abide with lemon teas, Kleenex and lots of rest? (I think you need tons of rest, anyway!)
