Avoiding Medicine Induced Fuzzy-Head Syndrome and Relying on A Regular Joe – Daily Quote

Spring allergies have hit me squarely between the eyes. Stuffy-headed, my red, watery eyes makes the world a blur. Constant sneezing and sinus pressure take their toll when you are running full speed ahead. While allergy medication can relieve the pressure and ease congestion, it messes with my ability to concentrate, form coherent thoughts, and worst of all, it makes me sleepy. In my delusional, drowsy stupor, my mind swirls, dreaming up improbable scenarios. I feel like Alice in Wonderland, attempting to have tea with the Mad Hatter. Maybe a quick nap isn’t such a bad idea after all.

Ah, sweet sleep. It is a rare commodity when your brain is battling a cocktail of antihistamines and decongestants. We, humans, are hard-wired to worry in the dark of night. We spend hours staring at the ceiling, tossing, turning, and entertaining concerns about the lack of shut-eye. The spinning wheels make matters worse. Sleeping during the daytime is a luxury I cannot afford. Coping mechanism number two is multiple cups of coffee. My hot brew helps ease sinus pressure while the caffeine combats a throbbing headache, and viola, no fuzzy brain. Step aside, I have work to do, and I need another cuppa Joe.

What comforts you and makes you feel better?
