All of the cold meds expire.
Last night at 230 Rich coughed himself awake. Hard. I got up and went to get the supplies.
The Vaporub expired years ago.
The Robitussin expired last March.
I figured fuck it, and used both on him anyway. The Vaporub did nothing. The Robitussin worked for 3.5 hours instead of 4, so I had to give him more at 6am.
That was the last of it. We ran out.
So CVS opened at 8. We needed everything. I am starting with the crushed glass in throat feeling. So I needed supplies too.
I spent $49.
A bottle of Robitussin was NINE freaking dollars.
I had to buy the liquid Coricidin, instead of Nyquil, because Rich has high blood pressure. $7.50. Vicks was $8.49. And on it went.
Now everyone in the house feels like shit. My nose won't stop running and I keep sneezing. Rich is still coughing a bit. Livvie is breathing through her mouth.
And I have to go out and buy chicken soup supplies, and I don't wanna.
Have a great weekend all.
