November 24, 2014 ~ Today I am thankful for cold medicine. I’ve been fighting off a cold for more than a week and yesterday it finally won. I realize there is no cure for the common cold, but I am very thankful that there are over the counter cold medicines that help alleviate symptoms.
Usually, when I catch a cold, it’s a head cold that settles in my sinuses. I spent the whole day lounging around in my jammies either reading or watching TV. I’m hoping that by resting all day yesterday, I’ll feel better today and be able to accomplish everything on my schedule.
I’d also like to mention that I am thankful for kleenex … I can’t even think about the old days when people used handkerchiefs … eeww !! I’m doubly thankful today, since I missed yesterday.

November 26 ~ Today I am thankful for prescription medicine. I woke up this morning with a migraine 🙁
I have suffered with migraines since I was twelve years old. Sadly, I wasn’t accurately diagnosed until after high school. For years, they insisted my headaches were because I needed glasses, but every time I wore the glasses, they actually gave me a headache. I missed many days of school, staying home suffering with horrible, pounding pain and nausea.
Migraine medication has come a long way since I was first diagnosed in the 80’s. My first prescription relieved the pain, but pretty much knocked me out. I couldn’t work because I couldn’t stay awake. I am blessed these days because I currently take Imitrex for my migraines. It doesn’t make me drowsy, so I’m not totally incapacitated for the whole day.
