The Way You Make Me Feel...

.... really makes me want to sleep.
 
Not what you were expecting?  Well, I'm here with a funny story for you today.  But please be aware that I have been sick for going on two weeks and I am at the end of my rope with coughing and feeling like crud.
 
So, a little back story.  Monday night was  t-e-r-r-i-b-l-e for me and the husband.  I'm fairly sure somewhere between all my hacking and coughing that Brian was wishing he had not said I Do to such a loud, snotty, coughing, attempt of a wife.
 
But I was dying people.
 
I had tried every imaginable position there is to sleep and nothing was working.  I was constantly hacking (what sounded like my lungs up!) and never getting any kind of relief.  So genius me thinks I can just prop the pillows up and sleep "sitting up."

It would work for a little while until I would get sooooo sleepy that I'd cozy my way down into the bed and snuggled back along my husband.  And then the hacking would start, AGAIN.
 
I finally gave up and went to the recliner.  At least there, I wasn't hacking in Brian's ears.  I'm sure he was sending a prayer of thanks at this point.  LOL.
 
Well.. moving on.
 
Yesterday, my honey shows up at my work with me some medicine, including some Robitussen. 
 
I had not had any since I was a child, so I was intrigued to see if it worked on me since NyQuil doesn't.  I know, I know, I'm strange.
 
So bedtime came last night and I looked and how much I needed to take.  The directions said 10 mL.  Well, I poured that and it didn't look like enough to me, so I poured more. 
 
Then I poured another little cup full.
 
Then during the night, I got up two more times for more "as needed shots" of the medicine.
 
Now, let's talk about how I felt THIS MORNING.
 
There is only one word to describe me: Drunk.
 
Ya'll.  I was a mess.  A hot mess.
 
I left a mess in the house.  I don't remember driving to work hardly. I couldn't concentrate for the first few hours of work.
 
So yes, the good ole Robitussen works, but I strongly encourage you to stay within the suggested amount.
 
You've been warned, haha!
 
Oh, and yes, I'll be taking more tonight.  But I think I'll leave it at the recommended dosage too!
