I am pretty adverse to medications of any kind. Unless it's the bubble-gum flavored syrup of my childhood, I don't want to take any, ever. But sometimes I relent and realize it's for the best, and often is exactly what's needed. Today I am thankful for cold medicine. Some congestive-bronchial situation is wreaking havoc on my immune system, but with the help of NyQuil and DayQuil I was knocked out last night and functioning today.
I'm also thankful for the good graces of God that kept me from crashing while I drove to work this morning, because I am pretty sure I was still feeling the effects of the NyQuil. Yikes. Powerful stuff.
