I wrote this post as part of my participation in a blog tour on behalf of Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division, the makers of SUDAFED®. I received compensation to thank me for taking the time to participate. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
It seems that every year around this time, I get the sniffles. I blame it on the kids. They come home from school everyday with god knows what kind of germs. Even though we all wash our hands regularly, it’s still bound to happen. Since I am always on the go, I feel run down quite often and I think that makes me even more susceptible to getting sick. I can always tell when I am getting sick, too. I end up with a sinus headache and the rest of the symptoms aren’t usually far behind.
For some people, sinus congestion feels like a big old weight sitting on their face and I definitely fit into that category. In addition to the fact that my head feels like it weighs 322,210 pounds, every little noise is totally amplified. It’s like I can hear everything that goes on in my next door neighbor’s house as if they were in my house. Just imagine how loud it gets for me when my sinuses are congested and both boys get home from school and try to talk to me at the same time. It’s like there are 40 people in my kitchen screaming at the top of their lungs.
Sadly for me, I am currently experiencing that sinus congestion that I was just telling you about. I finally took some SUDAFED® yesterday and after a good nights rest, my family is super happy that they don’t have to tip toe around the house any more…..well, until the next time.
