Cold Medicine

This post is a short rant, so if you came here for some sort of meaningful content…move on to an older post.
I have been sick for about 2 weeks. It started out with stuffiness, sneezing, and an occasional cough…then escalated. I got to the point where I was shaking, coughing uncontrollably, migraines, and just feeling crappy overall. When I reached this level of sick, I became desperate. I took a night time cold medicine. I typically avoid them until I’m desperate because they really mess me up…as in knock me out and then I’m woozy for another full day. Upside is that 3 days later I am almost back to normal…health-wise. haha My rant is pretty much about myself…why can’t I take cold medicine without becoming a complete weirdo? Non-drowsy stuff makes me a total nut job and keeps me up for 2 days, and night time stuff wrecks me for 2 days. No wonder when I get sick, I stay that way for what seems like forever…I’m afraid of medicine! (And I’m a weenie and can’t take liquids without gagging & having a fit like a little kid…I’m sure it seems funny, and I thank God no one has ever caught me on camera having to take cough syrup.) *END RANT* Does anyone else have this problem?
