I've been dealing with a cold since Saturday, and I decided it was time to destroy it. I'd been taking Nyquil every night since then, but I'm always wary of daytime medicines because they make me drowsy (despite the non-drowsy promise plastered on the box). Anyway, last night at Wal-Mart I decided to try Sudafed PE Cold & Cough. I've taken regular Sudafed before - the tiny little red tablets - and they don't make me sleepy or anything. So this morning I took the daytime Sudafed, and now I am regretting it. I just bent over in my chair to pick up a staple I dropped, and I nearly toppled over as a result of my drunken stupor. What is wrong with me? Why can't I take non-drowsy medicine and NOT get drowsy? Does anyone else have this problem? So I guess the only time I can take anything for my cold is at night before I go to bed. Boooo.

By the way, it just took me like 15 minutes to type this post because my brain is not capable of telling my fingers what to do right now.


  1. LOL!! sorry honey...I wonder how much of the work day you will actually remember once it's over

  2. I recommend chasing it with a double expresso from Starbucks!

  3. Well, I would have had a Starbucks Frappuccino to counteract it, but I was kind enough to offer my last one to Baron this morning. So I chased it with a Diet Dr. Pepper instead. Not quite the same effect. :-)

  4. I always think it's funny when a medicine warning label says, "May cause drowsiness or excitedness."

    What's up with that? I guess they're covering all of their bases.

    At least you're not having to operate any heavy machinery today. (Well, be careful driving home...)

  5. That is good training for old age. We are like that all the time.
