CHRONICLES: ME AND MY SALLERGY (SINUS AND ALLERGY)
Good Morning :-) Well, it's another beautiful Saturday and it's absolutely gorgeous outside. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year (I want to get married in the Spring) but it can also be a nemesis: sinus and allergy (which is why I have summer time as plan B for my future wedding lol). Yesterday my sinus and allergy were bad. I woke up with a headache, couldn't find my medication, and the sneezing made the headache worse. I finally found the medication (Benadryl: Maximum strength, severe allergy plus sinus headache), and took two of them. Man, Benadryl does not play. "Marked drowsiness may occur" is an understatement lol. How about, "After taking prescribed dosage, count backward from 10"?
I was in and out of sleep for a bit then finally dozed off. I will say that Benny (Benadryl) will probably be my go-to meds if I don't have the Tylenol Sinus that I usually take, on hand. It worked wonderfully but I woke up with a low grade fever. Although it was only 98.9, I still had the chills and being cold that comes along with having a high grade fever. I wasn't too worried because I knew that a fever usually occurs when I'm having trouble with my sinus and allergy. My only concern was that I wouldn't be able to be around my mother.
My temperature is still 98.9 (just took it) which means I still have doctoring on myself to do. Other than the fever, I feel ok, but, nevertheless, I'm still going to enjoy the sunshine coming through my window.
