It's past 2:30 in the morning where I am, but it looks like I might not get any sleep tonight. Earlier this evening my throat started feeling scratchy, not really in a ''sick'' way, more like an ''allergies'' way. Took a Zyrtec, no help, drank some hot lemon tea, not a whole lot of help either. So I took ibuprofen, which has helped with the pain some, and tried a cold drink instead, but I'm still too nervous to go to sleep, lest I feel even worse when I wake up. I've had my fair share of horrible sore throats before.
