Can I say that being sick during Thanksgiving was a bitch?
Friday, Saturday and part of yesterday I camped out on the couch. I felt absolutely horrible. My chest hurt. I couldn't stop coughing. My nose was like niagra. It was sad and pitiful to watch...and hear since I lost my voice.
I took some Mucinex DM, thinking it would make me feel better. I mean that's what that stuff is meant to do right?
Wrong, oh so very very wrong!!
We figured out that was what kept me up Thursday night. I woke up Friday and felt much better, but within an hour of taking another dose, my tongue was numb and I was as high as the ceiling.
I couldn't move without the room spinning in three directions and I kept having shapes and bright colors swirling before my eyes. I started panicking randomly AND my eyes were bugged out.
I've mentioned before that I respond weirdly to meds sometimes. But when Bo did some research, I wasn't the only one experiencing those side effects. Talk about relief, I was terrified I'd have to go the ER because of that shit.
My Xmas present to you, DO NOT TAKE MUCINEX DM!
