NyQuil: The double-edged sword

I think they need to revise the slogan to something more accurate like: “The night-time, if you take it an hour before sleepy time you’ll probably fall asleep on the couch and won’t wake up until your alarm goes off but then you’ll hit the snooze button for two hours and be a zombie the next day medicine.”

I felt like I was coming down with something again yesterday and that is just not an option right now.  So, I loaded up on vitamins, fruits, Airborne and even took a precautionary shot of NyQuil before bed.

I don’t remember the NyQuil “hangover” lasting this long or being this intense.  I feel like I’m watching myself maneuver through the day in sloooooow moooooootion.

Maybe I shouldn’t have had that glass of wine before the NyQuil shot.  Do you think if I take DayQuil it will offset the side effects I’m experiencing from its PM counterpart?  I probably just need a run; that will wake me up.  Or a 1 PM coffee break?  The coffee would heat me up too; I’m freezing today!  Does NyQuil decrease body temperature?

At least my brain activity doesn’t appear to have been affected. Sheesh.

    I believe you learned in the 4th grade what the problem is:

    Individuals refuse to accept “self accountability and personal responsibility” for their actions, thoughts or desires.

    I am proud of you with all my heart.
