The fall allergy season is upon us and the cold season is coming soon. I thought I'd share with you today my favorite items to have when I'm sick or suffering allergies. For me my allergies can get so bad, I feel like I have a cold! It can be so miserable...
Soup & tea are definite must haves when you're not feeling well. Whether you are lucky enough to have someone make you some homemade chicken noodle, or you have to pull out whatever is in your pantry. You need soup! It's comforting and soothing. Same goes for tea. I love tea. However, on a day to day basis it loses to coffee... ahah! So I tend to only enjoy a cup of hot tea when I have a cold or my allergies are really acting up.
Facial tissue is incredibly obvious but I'm not just talking about any facial tissue here. Get yourself an adorable, pretty, uplifting box of facial tissue! When you feel horrible, having pretty things around you lifts your spirit. Especially when you have to go to the office even when you're not feeling well. You'll be happy you picked up a pretty box of tissue! I also grab a stack of magazines. I don't often take the time to read magazines, so I take advantage of that on a sick day in bed.
At the first sign of a cold or difficult allergies, I run to my local CVS. You can pick up your soup, tea, tissue, and magazines all in one trip! While I was recently picking up my must-have's for myself I noticed a new product in the feminine care isle. Poise Impressa bladder supports. This intrigued me and I'll be real with you and tell you why this is a necessity for me... When I'm sick with a cold or allergies and I'm coughing my head off, I have SUI [stress urinary incontinence]. Yup. It's true. It's so embarrassing and a HUGE hassle to have bladder leakage when you're already miserable. I will often call in sick with my allergies just because I don't want to deal with bladder leakage at work from coughing. With the Poise Impressa bladder supports, I no longer have to miss work because of a cough!
CVS had the Poise Impressa sizing kit and that's what I picked up. Poise Impressa comes in 3 different sizes since we're all built differently. The different sizes are not based on how much you weigh or how tall you are, they're for your internal size. The sizing kit also comes with a $4 off coupon for when you're ready to buy a full package of the size you need. There's also a $1 off coupon for the Poise Impressa starter kit you can print from CVS that is available until all are claimed!
How it works: You start with size 1 and if you still experience leaks, move up to size 2, etc. Poise Impressa is inserted "like" a tampon, but it is NOT a tampon. Do not use Poise Impressa while on your period, and you can not use it while pregnant. Poise Impressa may look like a tampon, but it is not for absorbing. It's a preventative tool to keep leaks from happening at all.
That's my must-haves for when I'm sick. I'm so happy to have found the Poise Impressa to add to my sick day arsenal! Now I can cough without fear of bladder leakage! What are your must-haves?
