Pardon me, this probably isn’t going to make any sense.
As you should know by now (unless you’re just joining the party) I have Bipolar Disorder and am heavily medicated for everyone’s protection. One of my primary side effects when not medicated is rampant insomnia. I think my record for “consecutive days without any sleep” is something like SIX. My rotten little brain is just a little too sensitive with the chemicals to be able to properly shut down without some intervention every night. So I take my 13 pills (that is no shit) and hope for the best.
And most of the time it’s fine, unless I get sick with something that makes it hard to breathe.
People who don’t have to take meds like this take for granted the ability to take something in the over-the-counter class of snot reducers. There is none of that for me. NONE I say! Any kind of decongestant totally negates all of my sleepytime pills and I end up awake all night anyway. I can breathe, but I’m awake and then end up grumpy. No damn good.
Instead, I get this…
So even though I’m pretty sure this is just a sinus infection at worst and not actually Ebola, I kind of wish it was. I just got my keyboard wet. Gotta go.
