Allergies

OK, whoever invented sinuses sucks. I am sniffling and miserable and the pollen count in Portland is supposed to increase over the next few days. My friends who look at me are shocked because I've been crying my eyes out -- but it's all because of my damned allergies. Time to head to the store and try and find a better drug. Maybe a pinch of Drano up each nostril ...

Speaking of drugs, Claritin is out. I've been doing some reading on it and apparently, Claritin's effectiveness is vastly overrated. For many people, it has no effect whatsoever. I am one of those people. I just finished reading the conclusions of one study which suggests that Benadryl is much more effective than Claritin. Yup. Good ol' Benadryl. Guess what I'm buying at the store (it's cheaper, too).

My bad
I invented sinuses. Sorry. I was tired of carrying my cocaine up my ass. Should've thought it through.

Re: My bad
Yes, but that trick of shoving a handkerchief up your bum and pulling it out of your urethra is still pretty nifty -- even though it is a bit gross.
I'm sure you don't want to know I've escaped the misery you're currently suffering, but Claritin works for me. The one day I forgot it this week severely sucked. And when I remember to take it in the morning... I don't even think about it the rest of the day. It's completely un-noticeable.

It really doesn't do a damn thing for my cat allergies though. I'm back to Benadryl for that.
Re:
Why the hell would I care if Claritin decided to use lawyers all of a sudden? It's not like Claritin's going to sue me (except for defamation of character and loss of consortium since I stopped swallowing it).
Oh sure, use my sleepy grammar against me! See if I ever offer you home made remedies again!

By the way, if Claritin is going to sue you for loss of consortium... you must have one hell of a party going on in your insides.

Hey, random question. Did I get all the Sandman back from you? I can't find the first one, and I am forgetful enough to have forgotten loaning it out to another person. Just thought I'd check.
I take Clarityn (trust us Brits to spell it differently) daily throughout the year for allergies but it doesn't work in the summer. I'll have to check this Benadryl out, since this has convinced me that there's not really much point in spending £6.10 a month for something that doesn't work. So lets see if it's cheaper here too.
