Is ďSex EducationĒ worth watching?
Yeah. Weird accident, that discovery for me too. I'd do better working at night but no can do with my job.

I'm such a night owl that about a decade ago I started taking a half-dose of Walmart's generic "sleep aid" to get back to sleep. I wake up often (60-year-old bladder FTW!), and my brain always shifted into high gear when I'd try to get back to sleep. Then I started also getting up at 6 a.m. to cook hubby breakfast before work... and couldn't get back to sleep. (I typically go to bed between 2 and 3 a.m.)

The half-dose worked wonders. It didn't knock me out completely but it did help me ease back to sleep after getting up for anything. It wasn't until about a year ago that a nurse friend of mine pointed out that the "sleep aid" ingredient was just Benadryl. I had never made the connection.

If I take a whole dose (50mg instead of one 25mg tablet), I get jittery and it has the opposite effect. The half-dose has been perfect.

Also, I have no allergies, so I'd never bought anything like Benadryl before.
Same re: Zyrtec
I usually use Zyrtec for my allergies. It works pretty well.

Turbo Trip!
Donít ask how I know. I just do
They doled out Benadryl in rehab if you couldnít sleep or were feeling anxious. A whole sheet will **** you up, tho 😅
