Parents don’t get “sick days” so we need THIS!

It hit me. It hit me hard. I woke up with a pounding headache and my body was cramping all over. The last 24 hours went flashing through my mind – what was wrong with me? Did I get food poisoning?? I knew I shouldn’t have eaten that raw cookie dough! Did I inhale too many fumes at the gas station? WHYYYY!? Why did I feel like I was on my death bed!? And then it got worse. I rolled over to check my alarm clock and started coughing up a storm. Every burst of air from my lungs was like a punch to my chest… and my throat was on fire. What was happening to me!?

If you’ve been there before… this is what we refer to as suffering from the “parent cold.” You know, where you are sick as a dog but have to continue adulting because you have family that relies on you. You may be able to call out of work but you can’t call out of making your children breakfast and packing lunches and finding missing shoes and reminding everyone to brush their teeth! Chances are the parent cold will hit you when least expected, and without any mercy. At this point, there is only one thing you can do.

Theraflu®!!! Listen, my friends. I would have sold my soul to be able to lay and rest in comfort without the fever and congestion. I would have given up anything just to feel better. So I asked my husband to please, pretty please, bring me something from the pharmacy and was absolutely delighted when he arrived home with Theraflu® Multi-Symptom Severe Cold with Lipton®. That’s right – with the flavor of Lipton® tea!!

This miracle medicine literally battled every single one of my symptoms with one power-packed mouthful. You dissolve a packet into 8 ounces of hot water and sip the great taste of green tea and honey lemon, then feel the aches and pains disappear. It sounds too good to be true, right?? But it’s not! This is coming from someone that’s tried it!!
