That’s what I feel right now.
Because of my rip-roaring allergy attack from yesterday’s cleaning, I wizened up (just a tad) and took a Claritin as soon as I could shove down a piece of toast this morning. I’d struggled all night with sinus pressure and jaw pain (from so much sneezing is all I can think of) but did I get up and take anything then? Nope. Like I said, I’m only a little bit smarter since yesterday.
It’s now lunch time. It only took Mr. Claritin 4 hours to kick in. And I’m feeling mighty fuzzy. I can’t decide if I like that feeling or not.
On one hand, it’s delightful.
On the other, my extremities are freezing, I have the jitters and I have a hard time focusing.
ALL allergy medicine does this to me.
Wait a sec, that was a lie.
Children’s Benadryl doesn’t. If I take one tablet (just to give you a comparison, that’s what you’d give a 5-year-old) BEFORE the allergies kick in, it does the trick beautifully. Any more and I get the jitters. And it won’t do a darn thing if the allergies are already well underway.
But then again, either does Mr. Claritin. That’s why I didn’t both with it yesterday once I realized I needed it. That train had already left the station. I knew the only remedy was just survive the day and get to bed as soon as possible. I hate that. Let me tell you, I was one HOT, BEAUTIFUL sight for my man when he walked in the door after work! Wooo! It’s a wonder he could keep his hands off me.
Mr. Claritin makes me want to sleep… or curl up in a soft blanket with a book… Except when I try to read, this is what I see:
