Last night, I got a grand total of forty-five minutes of sleep. I was unable to even contemplate sleep and this morning, I realized in hindsight that I did it to myself.
What happened was this: I took two Advil Cold and Sinus pills before going to bed. My head was pounding and I just wanted. it. to. stop. I didn’t give a second thought to what I was doing, though, and I really should have. Why? One of the two active ingredients in the pills is pseudoephedrine, which has never really given me a problem before when taken as Sudafed. Last night, though, I basically dosed myself with speed. While they work for colds — rather nicely for me — they’re definitely not something to take two of just before bed. My whole body was thrumming, for want of a better word to describe the sensation.
I think I’m still running on its last legs, and hopefully when I crash, it isn’t too bad, as I need to be fully functional from 3:00 until 3:30. Tonight, though, will be a world of fun.
I am such a dummy some times.
