I've been having runny nose on and off for almost a month already. And it has finally gotten more serious. I'm now having sore throat as well. CE has just recovered from flu (fever started on Tuesday, subsided on Thursday) and now my turn to be sick. Yesterday I took Clarinase 24hr. As written on the box, it's a fast relief (non drowsy) from cold and allergy symptoms like blocked nose, sneezing, runny nose and itchy, watery eyes. It was highly recommended by the pharmacist in Guardian. I was still sneezing and having runny nose today but it was really effective in clearing blocked nose. I hate having blocked nose as I've to breath through the mouth. And I would have a hard time sleeping.
I've been sleeping early these days but I don't know why I still don't feel in tip top condition. Maybe it's the quality of sleep. CE's been waking up in the middle of the night crying. Sometimes he's consolable, then he can sleep back again easily. Other times, I really don't know what he wants. He has very weird sleeping preferences lately. Sometimes he wants me to put my head on his tummy. Sometimes on his backside, if he's sleeping face down. Sometimes on his hand. I have to be very alert and not put my whole weight on him (head also quite heavy for him, right?). And sometimes, nothing works so he'll just cry and cry. Then I'll scold him and smack his backside. And eventually he'll doze off again. So I have been having disturbed sleep. I guess that's probably the reason why I don't feel rested enough although I sleep for many hours.
Well, I'd better get some sleep now. Hopefully I'll make less "wantans" tomorrow. *sniff* *sniff*
