"D" is not for me!
Hoooey! Am I super glad it is Friday. This has been one of the longest weeks of my entire life. I am not kidding either. To top it off I have a terrible cold. I get a cold about once every 3 or 4 years so I feel bad complaining about it...but I am really feeling yucky. I felt so bad last night that I took a Mucinex D. I really don't ever take any medicine and I don't think I have ever taken anything with a "D" in it but I found these in the medicine chest and thought, "What the heck!" I popped one in my mouth laid on the couch to watch "Chopped" (my new tv obsession) at 6:00 p.m. I watched 2 episodes and then I fell asleep. Megan woke me up and I went to bed. I woke up at what I thought was a few minutes before my clock was to go off because I was about to die to go to the bathroom. I got up, looked at the clock and thought, "What in the world???" It was 11:23...at night. Then I proceeded to have the longest night of the longest week of my entire life. I woke up every hour. My skin felt like it was crawling all over me. My head felt so weird and well, just weird! When I talked (yes, I talk to myself...don't you?) I could hear my voice in my head. Does that sentence even make any sense. All day today I just felt so strange. I still kinda do. I will never take anything with "D" in it again. I mean it. Even one of my teacher friends said, "You don't feel good do you? You're never sick but you look like you just feel awful." I agreed with her and wished I had stayed home today. I will not take anything but plain old advil or tylenol from now on. I have a busy weekend ahead of me. So I have to get better. We are having the missions conference at church and I plan on being there each night next week. It is so fun and I learn so much about what God is doing all over the world. Tomorrow I am getting a massage and I cannot wait. I got this as a gift from my sweet niece for helping with her wedding back in September and I am now just using it. Hopefully I will fall asleep. I hope I just don't snore or have my nose run all over the massage table. I will just put kleenex under my nose to fix that! I think I will take a bath and go to bed. Unmedicated..... Hopefully I will get some sleep and feel tons better tomorrow.
