Allergy meds suck

Day 193 of practice.

I'm taking allergy medicine for the first time in my life. I bought the brand that the doctor said would make me less drowsy. If this is less drowsy I don't want to see more drowsy. I went from "I should go out and get some dinner" to "I am so sleepy I cannot keep my eyes open" in a matter of moments. Thank goodness I was home when it happened! I took a three hour nap and I NEVER nap unless I'm seriously ill. I thought that the nap would ruin my chances of sleeping at bed time, but it's a struggle to stay awake.

Anyway, since I am suffering from a bone-deep weariness, and Jen and I shopped all day instead of practicing, today's practice was lots of pretty floreos and finger waves while watching The Daily Show, because I am far too tired to actually move or think.


  1. Is it something that your body needs to get used to and then the sleepiness will go away?

  2. Possibly, but the label does say "May cause drowsiness" and "Be careful when driving." Several FB friends recommended a different brand that is non-drowsy so I'll try that over the weekend. For now I have decided that the cure is worse than the cause and I'm toughing it out with natural remedies until I'm done with dance classes for the week :)
