an ode to benadryl

Benadryl is so awesome. Usually it doesn’t do much to make me drowsy, but yesterday evening I was sneezing literally every few seconds. I took 2 benadryls for the antihistamine, just because I couldn’t stand to sneeze any more, and I was out cold for a really long time- close to ten hours, I think.

I’m not sure if my cold is worse today, or if the symptoms have just changed. I still have a cough, but my nose is more congested today. I’m still sneezing, too.

It doesn’t help that my parents are also sick. Same cold. Our home is just one big ball of germs this weekend. 🙂

I didn’t get to workout today. I just did not feel up to it.

I don’t mean to complain. It’s frustrating to be without a computer. I ordered the new cord, and it should be here by midweek. I have worked on my cross stitch, but it’s hard to concentrate with my head so congested. Surfing the net with my phone is ok, but it drains the battery awfully quickly.

But I have a warm house, plenty of chicken soup, and plenty of blankets. In another week or two, I will be healthy again. I am okay. I am blessed.
