revelation

i have been super tired for the past week or more. as in, going to bed at 7 o'clock every night tired. i set the alarm for 8:30 and get up for an hour and a half, and then back to bed at 10 o'clock (which used to be normal bedtime for me).

then this morning, it hit me! every spring, i get a terrible wheezing chest cold. the first week of march. like clockwork. so regular, i wondered if it might be a seasonal allergy (although there's not much growing here the first week of march, but it could be leaf mold or something that appears when the snow melts). anyway, i thought i'd be clever this year and head it off at the pass by taking a daily antihistamine (cetirizine) before the sickness hit. antihistamines are known to cause drowsiness.

duh!

starting today, i am going to take it in the evening instead of the morning. i hope i can avoid the wheezing by this preventive measure. i do not want to use an inhaler ever again if i can help it!

in other news, my jaw stiffness is getting better, so i'm going to assume it was just a normal phase in the recovery from the crown lengthening procedure.
