time to get ill

So pretty much like clockwork I get sick with allergies that inevitably turn into a sinus infection about twice a year. It's not good. Whatever medication I take (whether it is supposed to make you drowsy or not) makes me drowsy. It gives me that groggy, disconnected feeling. Here's the pattern...wake up and feel ok for about 30-60 minutes. Take drugs. Feel so-so for about 30-60 minutes. Feel super drowsy but manage to stay conscious for about another half hour. Sleep for 90-120 minutes. Wake, rinse, repeat. All day long. This does not make for a productive day but the medicine stops my head from feeling like my brain is trying to escape from all angles. Keep your fingers crossed that a full blown infection doesn't manage to take hold. That will put me out of commission for about a week. Today is Day 2.

I am sorry, hope you feel better. I guess this answer my questions, have not been feeling well, that is why you have not called. OMG!!! it sounds like a guy is trying to justify why the girlfriend has not called. How low have I come..... Sorry, I had a little drama queen moment...
So, plans for Friday are cancelled?

I hope you get better, drink lots of juice. love you!!!! @-->---

It seems like everyone I know (including me - which is why I am up so early) has "the crud" or knows someone that does. Pffft.

Feel better. Sinus infections suck and are gross, I feel for you. As a long-time fellow allergy sufferer, I recommend Alegra D. The D makes all the difference in the world!

Thanks, everybody. And the D does nothing for me... Still not doing great this morning but I'm not feeling worse either. We shall see...

So with the recent infections of E, I was told that when you have allergies if you use nose spray to keep things moving along (out/in/where ever it may go) helps prevent sinus infections. I don't know if there is any truth to it, but you could try...better than being down a week. ugh!!!

Hey, now you know how I feel year round. Yay, pollution! My favorite part is sitting at your desk/tv and suddenly feeling like the room is spinning. Usually means there's a front coming through.

Hope you feel better. Personally, I like to walk around with kleenex stuck up my nose all day. It's better than suddenly realizing you're dripping into your lap/food.

The kleenex-sticking-out-the-nostrils look is a great one. I've been known to use it myself in allergic situations...
So YOU'RE the one I got my sinus infection from. Hey, thanks a lot.
