About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Plagued by the rhinovirus

I knew this would happen.

I work at a pharmacy, as you probably know. There are a lot of sick people who visit the pharmacy, and I realize this. It’s why the skin on my hands are like hide of a gila monster from using so much hand sanitizer. And I made it all the way until January 12th without getting sick.

I’m not in the full throes of it. Just the sore throat and general fatigue. Nothing I can do right now but get sleep and drink tea. I did have a customer come into the pharmacy this week saying she was experiencing the tell-tale signs of an oncoming cold/flu–sore throat, aches and pains, that sort of thing. She had me in the over the counter aisle for almost ten minutes (and we were busy!) just trying to get me to recommend something for her to take.

Lady, if you’re not having symptoms, there’s nothing you can do! No miracle cold drugs. :( I do kinda/sorta believe in Zicam and Vitamin C, but I think the best thing you can do for a cold is take medicine for your symptoms and rest. Which I will not be doing a lot of this weekend because I will be busy!

I leave you with the only clip of the Parks and Rec flu episode I can find which does not include Leslie Knope’s babble about wearing a tiara and returning it to Lady Pennyface. Which was the clip I wanted.
