It was almost as if an alarm went off in my sinuses as soon as I pulled in the driveway last night. I felt a funny tingle in my throat...I ate dinner and pretended it didn't bother me. The only thing in the house was Benadryl so I took a couple doses and while it did make me sleepy, it didn't last long. Benadryl has a very short lifespan and I woke up several times throughout the morning tossing/turning. Trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in that would allow breathing took FOREVER.
I started taking 500mg of Vitamin C last night to hopefully boost my immune system. I won't lie though, I'm looking forward to my lunch break where I can go to the drugstore and attempt to self-medicate. I generally only get sick like this once a year, but WHY NOW?!?
I cannot be sick on our cruise, I refuse!
