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.
