Tylenol- Not For Small Children

i took 2 extra strength tylenol PM last night to get rid of my headache and sore throat and maybe to help me breathe a little better. it says take 2 for kids 12+ and adults. i never seem to remember how the last time i’ve taken something it’s made me a little bit weird feeling because of the dosage being too much for me. so about an hour later i feel drunk off my ass or high as a kite, couldn’t figure out which. the good part was, i felt better. the bad part was, i couldn’t concentrate or make any sense on the phone. i was talking on AIM and managed to have like 4 serious conversations with 4 different people and they actually made sense… but when i got 3 phone calls before i fell asleep, they all asked me what the hell was wrong because the words just would not come out. i’d forget everything i said 5 seconds beforehand. not cool at all.

i woke up at 7 this morning and my mom came in yelling at me to get out of bed and go to work and i quickly informed her of the dilemma. by this time the tylenol had worn off so i had another headache and scratchy throat. she gave me some pill and i’m not sure what it was, but i’m feelin woozy again like last night. i really, really hope it doesn’t get that bad again. sigh… no work for me today. at least the pill made me feel better, maybe for good this time? who knows.
