Free Pass for Cold Season?

I have spent way too much time in bed this weekend not to have slept much. No fibro flares or endo issues. Not even Celiac-related issues. For once.

This time it was the old-fashioned crud. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of preferential treatment but in this case, I wish that spoonies could earn a free pass when it comes to cold/cough/crud season! I have enough issues to worry about than battling snot and a sore throat. So I have spent the last 48 hours with a box of Kleenex in hand and my head soaring like a kite. Thank you Dayquil – I’m not drowsy but the whole floaty feeling is way worse. And thanks to you Nyquil – for, well, nothing.

What makes me feel worse about having the crud is that I’m not alone. Abby is also fighting the crud and isn’t old enough for cold/cough medicine. I would take the crud 5x over if it meant she didn’t have to deal with it.

So if anyone has a free pass for cold season, please let me know so I can pass it onto my daughter!


I love hearing from you!
