Sneezy, Tired and Grouchy

If any of you had visitors to your blogs at 3 am , that was me. I woke up at 3am with bad allergies. I knew I would regret not stopping at CVS last night to get my prescription.

2:45 am wide awake with sneezy running nose, itchy throat and ears, and itchy watery eyes. Thank goodness my dear husband who goes to work at 4 , volunteered to go to the 24 CVS to pick up my prescription. I was able to go to sleep around 5 only to get up 2.5 hours later for work.

it is going to be along day. I am supposed to run at the gym today, but unless I get a boost of energy, running may be postponed and I may walk on the treadmill or do the elptical machine instead.

In other allergy news, I found out the other day that the dosage of allergy medication I was taking is no longer approved by the FDA unless you have severe allergies that involve losing skin or something like that. I am now down to half the dosage and have an appt with the allergist to see what other medication I can be put on instead of zyrtec since it doesn't really do enough.

What kind of allergy meds do you take? I have year round allergies, and everything makes me sneeze. I actually stopped counting the other day when I blew my nose over 30 times in the first hour I was awake!!

I've been prescribed things before, but nothing ever worked. Benadryl does a decent job, funny since it's no prescription, but it makes me so sleepy I only take it at night.
