After the long doctor visit on Saturday, I walked a couple blocks to a CVS to get my new prescriptions: Claritex or something, plus an antibiotic, and, finally, Ambien. The antibiotics will kill off bad guys living in my sinus passages, and the Ambien (well, the five dollar generic version) will make me fall asleep and stay asleep.
Except that it DOESN'T! I took it on Saturday night to see how I would react to it. It didn't make me tired and I didn't sleep very much.
Regardless, on Sunday, I felt pretty good--closest to normal that I've felt in awhile. That's good, right?
I took the fambien at 9pm, giving it time to kick in and knock me out. At 10.30, feeling no different, I went to bed anyway.
And I'm not sure if I slept at all.
The alarm went at 6.30 and I groaned, "FUUUUUCCKK MEEEEEE."
But of course I made it to school. This time my body's feeling pretty normal and strongish, rather than weak. But my head is just gone.
I made it through the day pretty fine, though I teetered over once or twice. Made it home to relax and rest. Felt ready to crash around 6, but I didn't. I hope that doesn't come back to haunt me.
Half an hour ago, I took all three pills at once: decongestant/allergy med, antibiotic, and sleeping pill. I began watching Friends, which took on a much more interesting twist when I saw two of everyone.
I lurched up and wobbled to the computer, where my arms don't seem to work too well and my tummy feels icky.
I need to brush my teeth. I hope I can do it without falling over and knocking myself unconscious on something porcelain. Pray for me, people,
