real Alice

Just a quick one before I take cough medicine & pass out again (yes, my cough has gotten much worse).....

Guys, I *KNOW* it's hard, but please try to remember to use "Alice" for my name on LJ, instead of my real name. Like I said, I know it's hard to always remember, but please try to be careful. I realize it's a bit silly, since I have my face out there, but it's a lot easier to say someone looks like me as a coincidence, than to say, "Oh it's a coincidence that that person has my face AND name"....it's just a silly protective thing. You guys are really great about this for the most part, & I really appreciate it. No apologies or any comments necessary, I just need to do this "reminder" post every once in a while, as I add new friends.....

Thanks! :-)

I took a spoonful of cough syrup with codeine last night (& the night before). I wonder if I am allergic to codeine. It makes me really itchy. I just itch all night, & it makes my throat hurt. But it does what it's supposed to do, knock me out. It quiets my cough so I can get some sleep. I mean, this chit knocks me flat on my ass. About 30 minutes after taking it, I start getting really drowsy. I usually sleep for a solid 12 hours or so. I don't like taking narcotics, even when it's prescribed, so I gave myself 3 days with it. Hopefully, I am on the road to recover by tomorrow. Sickness sucks, & drugs suck.

Ugh. I am soooo groggy. I wanted to take a nap, but couldn't sleep. I have to sit through hours of traffic & more hours of rehearsal, feeling this way. Bummer. I wish I could just blow rehearsal off, but I can't, & I need the money. Oh well. I will muddle through somehow. I always do.

I am SOOOO freaking out right now!!!!! Holy crap!!!!! I have a GIANT hive on my left thigh right now! Came out of no where! My leg started to itch a bit, I scratched at it a little....felt weird, so I lifted my pant leg....HOLY CRAP! What a sight! No kidding! This hive covers 3/4s of the top of my quad, & my quads are huge, so that's saying a lot. I really don't get hives, either, & the ONE time I got them before, it was individual bumps on my stomach. This is one GIANT one (no kidding, I took pictures & am gonna post them, this is so huge!), on my thigh, it itches like mad, & just has me freaking out! It's the scariest looking thing, & truly came out of no where. My friend, erinbir, the nurse, said no more codeine, since it looks like I might be having an allergic reaction. But I have taken cough syrup with codeine a million times when sick, & never had THIS reaction. Yes, it was making me itch, but nothing like this. And WHY just my thigh? Why one giant hive? This is just flat-out creepy. I am going to take a Benedryl & hope that takes care of it (while knocking me out for over 12 hours, dangit, & I wanted to get some stuff done tomorrow), cause my only other option is to go to the ER or doc tomorrow, & I don't have the money for that. Not at all.

OK....back to freaking out.....holy cow.....

Check this chit out!


I took a bunch, it's amazing, but this is one of the best.....what's going on???
