Ever have just one of those weeks? One word can sum up my week so far… sick. I am the kind of sick where your head feels like it’s full of lead and your body aches when doing small things like walking across the room or even brushing your teeth. Who knew brushing your teeth could be so strenuous?
I am super prepared to take care of my baby daughter when she falls ill yet seem to lack the ability to take of myself when an illness strikes. Our medicine cabinet is chock full of thermometers (yes, I have many different baby thermometers!), the blue nose bulb thingy and a variety of odds and ends that our pediatrician recommended to keep in times of sickness for the baby. But, it is seriously deficient in the grown up medicine department.
I do not ever expect to be sick but inevitably it happens. During those times, I find myself running quickly into the drug store for cough drops or a pain reliever. I don’t care how much it costs; I buy it because I feel so miserable. I would love to have a frugal plan of attack whenever one of those life draining illness hits.
What do you keep regularly stocked in your medicine cabinet? How do you stay frugal while being sick?
Thanks everyone for weighing in!
