I usually go to the grocery store, but I was sick yesterday with the flu. I was fighting a cold for a couple of afternoons and then it seemed to settle into my chest. I took some medications, but they did not work well. I was sick on Tuesday when I was supposed to go to the grocery store and the laundromat. Everyone needed fresh clothes, so my husband and my oldest son offered to go to the laundry. I knew that was going to be a disaster, but I could not say no. They were so sweet to offer. I told them to bring all of the clothes back to the house and I would fold them so they were nice and neat just the way that they like. While the men were out, they decided to get more fabric softener. We were almost out of the dryer sheets. The men decided to get a new fabric softener that had an unusual odor, but both of them liked the smell, but my dust sensitivities did not. The new fabric softener makes me sneeze and cough like crazy. I thought I was sneezing and coughing a lot when I was sick, but now I cannot stop. The flu symptom reaction was so bad that I had to go back to the laundromat and rewatch all of the clothes. I had to get rid of that fabric softener. I also got the air purification system out of the closet and turned that on in the kitchen. I used to need an air purification system to sleep every night, but it’s been a long time since I have had to get it out of the closet.
