I Have Robitussin In My Bag And I’m Not Afraid To Use It


Yesterday morning I woke up… not feeling my best. I had 7 or 8 events scheduled in the city and couldn’t bring myself to canceling them all. So I took some medicine and off I went. I already wrote about the Nutella breakfast, but that was just the beginning.

The good news is I met a lot of cool people and connected with several new PR agencies. The bad news is I was so foggy and cross-eyed that I’m not sure I made the best impression.

Midway through the day I had to call my husband and tell him to come and get me. I just couldn’t continue. I ended up missing a few functions, but it could not be avoided. In between every event, I would whip out my Robitussin and take 2 teaspoons. It was actually pretty funny – but that might have been because I was so delusional.

When I walked in the door, I plopped everything on the floor, took way too much medicine and passed out. Bill wrote to my writers on INO and told me to cover me today. I woke up around 9 and have been trying to get through emails ever since. I’m officially giving up. When you answer 50 another 1o come in. It never ends. So I have to stop trying.

Going to sleep the rest of the day away.

Missed meeting Jessica Simpson today. Gave it to my writer – so BUMMED. Also missing an interview with Jennie Garth tomorrow morning. I don’t think I will be 100% by then. Thankfully someone is covering it for me. Worst time to get sick ever! But I hear the head cold is making its way around – so it was probably unavoidable.

  1. Feel better Vera! Don't worry about Jessica and Jennie. I'm positive the opportunities will keep coming your way. Hope you're resting.

  2. Hope you feel better! I woke up with a cold on Monday and I'm just starting to get over it, but my body still feels a little achy. I know how you feel!

  3. Vera have you tried taking a daily vitamin C tablet? I used to get sick so often and once I started this, I lessened the intervals of being sick. Try it.

  4. I have a multi-vitamin… but I always forget to take it. My problem is I have two little kids who I take to school and birthday parties. I'm always around germs. When they get a bit older, I'm hoping it will stop. It just seems without fail – a birthday party leaves me infected.

  5. Veraaa i havent been on the regular imnotobsessed in ages, and it was an everyday thing for me!! i miss ur personal blog bein thr cuz i think thats what made me go more loll
