Being a parent of a two year old, I know how challenging cold season can be. I hate seeing my daughter sick, so like any good mommy I cuddle and let her sniffle her germs all over me. As can be expected, I usually get sick while she is on the mend. I spend at least two weeks out of each winter season sick with a cold or the flu.

There is nothing I hate more than sinus problems. From not being able to sleep right at night because of a blocked nose to a fountain of germs constantly flowing out of my nose, sinus pain is a constant agony. I also suffer from allergies that make my eyes itchy, so when I have sinus problems they seem that much more painful.

I’ve tried everything to rid myself of sinus problems and even sought help online. Unfortunately, till now there hasn’t been a lot of ways to open up about sinus pain. That’s why I was excited to learn about Sudafed’s OPEN UP™ application on FacebookIt’s a great app that lets you make light of your sinus pain in a fun way. I used the application to sketch just how I feel when I’m all congested.

When I’m finally relieved it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. There is is nothing harder than being a parent while sick. I almost feel like throwing a party!
