Don’t Try This At Home

When I left work around 5 yesterday, I had an AWFUL sinus headache.
As I was driving offsite, I blindly dug around in my purse until I found my new pack of sinus headache OTC stuff, and popped a couple.

I ran a few errands, went home and started dinner, and noticed I felt kind of weird. A couple of hours later, I was feeling really, really weird – slack-jawed, impaired motor skills, STU. PID. – and then I remembered taking the sinus meds. They always make me feel loopy, so I was relieved that I hadn’t taken it any earlier, and just went to bed early.

Woke up at 6 this morning, still feeling a little lightheaded. Whew, that’s some potent shit! When I was waiting in the drive-thru at Starbucks this morning, I dug the Aleve box out of my purse, and was greeted by the proud proclamation, “One Tablet = 12 Hours Of Relief!”

One Tablet? Twelve Hours? And I took TWO!?!?

Well, no effing wonder!!!!

Hugs Not Drugs, Kids.

Oh, I'm notorious for taking too much meds and acting super wacky because of it. It's kind of like entertainment...lol.

I took some Equate brand Tylenol PM the other night and slept 10 hours without moving. My alarm did not rouse me and it took the phone ringing a good hour later to finally get me out of bed.

Sometimes those pills don't do much of anything for me, and sometimes they knock me flat on my ass. However, I take the recommended dosage. Unlike some folks :)
