Sneezing or sleeping. These are my choices.
I suffer from allergies.
Fairly uncomfortable, bad allergies the last couple years. Hm… Maybe I’m allergic to my boyfriend. (Just kidding)
Anyway, I’ve been taking Zyrtec the last couple days to deal with the allergies, but when I’ve found that when I take Zyrtec I have serious trouble waking up in the morning.
I spend the first hour of my day groggy, struggling to keep my eyes open or my head up, and knowing that any second I close my eyes I could fall immediately back asleep, into strange dreams about characters from “Secret Life” and high-rise offices and sky writing and storm clouds. And cats that turn into dogs that turn into people who play carnival games.
Oh come on, my dreams cannot be weirder than yours.
Once I’m out of bed and showered, I fight the groggy feelings all day. Every time I sit down to listen to someone I’m telling myself not to close my eyelids.
Has anyone else had this problem?
I’m thinking of switching to Claritin (or maybe the non-drowsy generic I got on sale at the grocery store for $10).
So, thoughts? What’s the best allergy medication to take?
Is there some holistic magic I can ingest to get rid of the allergies all together?
What would you do?
