Oh, Cold & Sinus medications - how I miss you!!
I don't think I have ever endured a nasty cold without my good buddies Sinutab, Tylenol Cold & Sinus Extra Strength, and others for both night and day.
Apparently there's a million things you can't eat, do and take when you're pregnant... for the most part, I'm ok with that (though I do miss my regular tuna sandwiches!)... Until now.
I have one doozy of a head cold. I have never missed work for a cold before. Until now.
My boss sent me home early on Wednesday because I looked and sounded so miserable... and he was scared of getting sick. I woke up feeling even more miserable on Thursday, so took a sick day... spent most of my day sleeping, drinking water, sneezing, going through tissues and running for bathroom breaks. I would have given a lot to take a daytime Tylenol Cold & Sinus to stop the sneezing, dry up the nose a bit and give me some congestion relief. But, for the love and well-being of this child, I refrained.... and continue to refrain.
While I continue to sneeze and go through tissues... (thankfully my body feels a little more alive today than yesterday)
I just H.O.P.E. I don't go through too many colds in the next few months. Nasty.
thanks for letting me vent.
