Benadryl … What a Relief

We just got back from a four-day trip to southern Alberta to visit family. Monday night I woke up at 2:00am with a splitting headache and was up for a few hours tossing and turning. Finally, I decided to get up and take half an Ativan pill, two Benadryl and I pulled out some earplugs. I slept like a baby for the next five hours. Lovely!

I think this chemo makes me extra allergy sensitive. So for the next couple of days, I took two Benadryl, morning, noon and nite. What a relief that was, my headaches were gone or nearly gone.

Benadryl really works for me … I feel as tho I’m doing a commercial.

Long time no see!
I can imagine how it feels when able to sleep well!
If you didn't know my blog has moved to WP.
Today I posted 'today 6 weeks ago...' - the post I wrote last year after my breast cancer operation.
It's incredible how time flies!
Have a beautiful and relaxing weekend!
