Default The cough drop that...motivates?

I've been battling the sinus infection from hell for...ready? seven weeks. Yeah...about 49 days too long. I had about 10 days of moderate reprieve before it started to rage again last week. I'm tired of it. I'm beyond tired of it.

So you'd think I'd be cheered on by the discovery that a cough drop borrowed from my mom's stash had motivational messages printed all over the wrapper:

What?! "Don't try harder. Do harder!" It's a sinus infection you little piece of...uggghhhh. I guess "Hope you feel better!" or "This blows! It'll pass, though!" wasn't militant enough.

I need one of those... Not so much for the "encouragement" but my throat hurts.

i am probably crazy, but I think the wrapper is neat. I'm always a fan of positive, encouraging snippets. I am sorry you are feeling so badly though. I hope you feel better soon.

Nah, you're not crazy. I love fortune cookies and my tea bags have little zen'ish sayings on the tag that I look forward to. This just seemed a little less comforting and more like cough drop boot camp. Hahaha.
