Stuffy nose, sneezing, etc.

I seem to have got a “code in my node”.  All day today my nose was sneezing and  dripping.  There is nothing like wearing a mask when one has a cold.  It does catch the drips, I guess. 

I am thankful to the good people who invented concoctions of ibuprofen and pseudofed.  Saves the day.  Today the medications just about kept up with the cold – but not quite.  I get a fairly good buzz from the pseudofed.  In fact it makes my heart do funny flip floppy stuff.  So I was counting the hours since the last dose to make sure I didn’t overdo it.  I guess it would look bad to have your dentist keel over while working!

So now for my night-time dose of Neocitran.  Oh that lovely antihistamine induced sleep.  The thing I hate most is a nose so stuffed that I am forced to breathe through my mouth.  I’m really hoping today was the worst of this present illness.

  1. Love that Neocitran! Niquil is great, too, but I have to sleep it off, otherwise I’m dizzy for several hours.

    Incidentally, isn’t it Sudafed? You seem to be talking about fake government police.

    Hope you feel better!

    You are right on the spelling, Marc. Foggy mind I guess. And the drug name is pseudepedrine I believe, so I crossed the two.

  3. Spoeaking of spelling…Isn’t it Nyquil??? That is hubby’s drug of choice when he gets sick
