No joke

A horrible sore throat, hot, stingy eyes, and a headache have been my constant companions for the last 2 days.  I'm all about taking meds but wasn't sure what to take.  No coughing, no fever, no congestion.  Motrin wasn't doing it.  I finally decided to take some Nyquil thinking that it was no biggie, it wouldn't effect me during the day adversely.  I can drink a pot of coffee and go to bed.  I can take two Benedryl and not tell a difference.  I figured Nyquil would be the same.  WRONG.  Within 25 minutes I felt like I'd had a 6-pack.  It was brutal.  Lauren was napping so I laid down to sleep off my drunk head while the big kids went into a TV coma.  I woke up and said, "Hey, where is Lauren!?" in this mini panic  Drew said in her DUH tone, "You put her down for a nap after lunch."  Oh, crap.  That's not good.  Nyquil should be wrapped in a neon wrapper with warnings all over it.  That stuff is NO JOKE.  Moms who are home alone with their children should absolutely not be able to take it.  It's 5 hours later and I feel a little hung over.  And my throat and head still hurt sooooo it was all for not anyway.
