Sometimes I visit the Shoutbox thinking I probably missed a lot of fun stuff since my last visit.

Sometimes I learn that I was wrong in that assessment.

Or my own vomit.

I would, however, probably take the h-n-h & SnL over someone else's vomit.

Honestly. Does being this annoying come naturally to you?

Half-n-half today. And a packet of Sweet 'n Low. In a ridiculously huge mug filled to the top.
Good afternoon, all! Or, as the night owls say, Good morning! Where's my coffee?
(checks clock) It's 1 p.m. EDT. No blurry sunshine crap yet. WTF, Seds?

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.

I think I figured out whodunnit. Now I just have to write it all down...

It keeps me awake at night.
Have you tried talking to someone about it?
No. That would keep me awake at night too.
