John came home from school a few days ago with a nasty cold and then spent the next two days sick at home. Mom and I both woke up this morning with hints of sore throats and runny noses: it's time to take action. I have quite a busy week ahead of me what with my birthday, packing, and going back to school. I don't have time to be sick this week.
I was sneezing a bit last night, and I wasn't sure if it was allergies or what John had, but I didn't want to take any chances, and so I took a vitamin B/C supplement last night before I went to bed, just in case. I woke up this morning, and it looks like a cold is the case. I popped another B/C supplement, and then ran to the store before work to grab tubes of Airborne for Mom and me. (I know that studies have been done that show that Airborne and vitamins don't really do anything and that it's silly to spend your money on such gimmicks, that it's all in your head; however, I am a-okay with Airborne working psychologically for me. I don't care if it's all in my head as long as my cold goes away. So, I continue to be mental and take Airborne.) I've been taking Airborne and my vitamins religiously today, because I do not want to be sick, especially right now.
I'm taking the offensive: this cold will not win. I will win.
