Bye Bye Pain Fairies

As I've been sharing lately, I've not been a stranger to pain this week. Thankfully, it's nothing super-serious, but I feel the pain fairies have definitely stopped by my house. A few days ago I came home to find a gift from my friends at UrgentRx. These are credit card sized envelopes that you carry with you in case of sudden upset stomach, pain or headache. Just imagine, you fall on a slippery supermarket floor and there's not a water fountain in sight and you would love to take something for the pain. Or imagine, you're on the subway and squished and hot and get a headache. The headache relief powder -- you don't need water for any of them -- is lemon-lime and the flavor for an upset stomach is cherry. And, they dissolve immediately, giving instant relief.


I'm optimistic that my visits from the Pain Fairies are over, but I've once again learned that anything can happen any time. I'm going to tuck the envelopes I received in my tote bag. I hope I don't need them any time soon, but it's a comfort to know they'll be there. Again, thanks friends at UrgentRx, and just a suggestion, can you make an envelope for those of us who are easily the victim of insect bites? We can get itchy in the middle of Manhattan. Please, I need something to keep the Itchy Fairies away.

It's summer again in New York City. It's hot and it's humid. I walked over to vote in the primary and stopped at a Mr. Softee truck on the way home, one last day of summer treat. I'd like to think that today will end the endless phone calls for the candidates -- there are eight people running for City Council in my district -- but I would wager there will be a runoff in several races, which will increase the calls. I dislike the calls, but really like the ability to vote, so I'll take the not so sweet with the very sweet.

Thanks for all the comments about yesterday's post. I appreciated everyone who stopped by and will definitely stop and visit all of your blogs. It may take me a day or two, but I will be by.

So glad you all stopped by to visit. You make my day happier.


P.S. I was not paid by UrgentRx for this post, but I was given samples of the product to try.

I never go anywhere without my pain pills. I am such a wimp.

I am sur that by next week you will be feeling better. That boot is a pain itself to put on, but it will do the trick.

Bonjour,

J'ai souvent été coincée autrefois par un manque de médicaments pour des maux de tête terribles...
A présent je n'oublie plus jamais de les emporter avec moi.

J'espère que vous allez bien et que les vôtres resteront toujours fidèles au fond de votre sac sans que vous soyez obligée de les utiliser.
gros bisous à vous.

I have recently started wearing a tiny purse that has a long strap to go over my head/shoulder....I feel less like an easy target than with a huge handbag. These little Urgent RX envelopes would be just the right size for my little purse. Hope you feel better soon.

The UrgentRX samples sound very nice, indeed. Hope the pain is diminished.

Awww, I am so sorry you suffer so. It's no fun being in pain. I hope these envelopes help you along.

I hope you find these gifts from the "Pain Fairies" will be useful to you in the future. Also, hoping your level of pain is decreasing with each day!

Thank you for your visits to my blog!

It would be like pain relieving Lik'm'ade (remember that?)!

I need sore throat pain fairy medication, and runny sneezy nose fairy medication and achy joint fairy medication ;-0 !

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

So sorry you haven't been feeling well, Carol! These look like mini lifesavers!

I hope the pain stays away for you! Those pain packets sound like a good idea. I usually carry around a bottle of OTC pain killer in my purse, but I don't always have something to drink with me in public, and I hate having to try to swallow a pill using a water fountain.

Lynn said...

they are pretty little packages too- you made me giggle today and I too hope that the foot pain fairy has others to attend to and can leave you alone.

Those pain fairies can stay away too!

What a great idea. I'm going to be on the look out now for some of these to carry along with me too. You are right we don't often have water available to swallow a pill down. Lets hope now that your painful days are soon a thing of the past.

Theresa said...

Sounds like a great item to have in a purse! Have a blessed and pain-free day! HUGS!

Carol, Insect bites? Carry some hand sanitizer in your purse. Rub the bite with a drop and the itching will stop. I use it all the time.

As for the blogging, I kinda wish I had focused on just one subject for my blog, rather than talking about several things I enjoy. Of course, I would now have several blogs!

Nothing worse than not feeling well and have no relief -- these are great!
