11/01/2005 Entry: "Your Twelve O'Clock Alarm Call. (Boom!)"
You'd think, sandwiched between the explosions and the night-long party, that things at our house would be too loud for sleep. But no, apparently I slept right through the 3 AM drum corps that rolled past our alley. But then again, if my antihistamine did to me last night what it's doing to me this morning, I'm not surprised. Thank Odd the buttons on the coffee machine don't count as heavy machinery. (Admittedly, I had to really concentrate to make it work—and I always get the same thing.)
Sadly, one Benadryl doesn't seem to be doing much of anything to the scary red bumps on my head (just in time for halloween, I've created my own frightmask.) And if one pill is making me this woozy, I can only imagine how quickly I will become comatose if I take two.
So if you hear anything exploding today, that may just be me trying to stay awake until lunch.

Lately, when I click on links you post, I get frightened and want to seek mental help.

I'm a big fan of Allegra. Non-drowsy, non-paranoid.

I tried Allegra and got all the common side effects from it: Backache, headache and a cold. Cold? WTF? I took a drug to stop sniffling and running nose, and that drug gave me a COLD?
Normally it's Claritin for me. I don't get any side effects from it and while it's not perfect, it does a nice job at preventing really bad hayfever reactions (eyes swelling shut, that kind of thing.) But the Benedryl worked really well for my regular allergy symptoms as well as the rash I was trying to control--I could breathe out of both nostrils for a change. Of course, I was snoring out of both nostrils too...
