I’m on Day Two of trying to replace my allergy medicines with the generic version of Claritin. It’s not going well. In fact, I’m quitting that plan. I picked up refills for both prescriptions on my way home from work today. Yesterday was okay, but today I woke up really dry. That went away by breakfast, and I spent the rest of the day sniffling and blowing my nose. The sneezing started after lunch. I feel fine if you don’t count the congestion and stuffy nose. I mean, I’m not sick. But I don’t want to just deal with this until the over-the-counter stuff kicks in or whatever. Not right now. I was overly aware of how much noise sniffling and blowing and sneezing makes when your office is a cubicle farm. Unfortunately, I really do need to find something else that works. On our new insurance, one of my allergy medicines went up $10 a month, and the other one went up $50. I need to find an alternative to paying almost a hundred bucks a month just for allergy medicine.
In other news, my niece is brilliant!
