I keep telling myself that, but I'm not listening to me.
I'm taking my last, regular law school exam on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. Not sure WHY I cannot seem to put my rear in gear, but it's just not cool!
What is also not cool is that I think there is some truth to this press release and my home is providing anecdotal evidence to support the research. Both M1 and M2 take Singulair during the traditional, seasonal allergy months. The weird thing is, I'm noticing this behavior in M2 WAY more than M1. Not that M1 isn't moody, but she's 9...and has a flair for the dramatic. It isn't that the behavior isn't there, it's just not so far outside the realm of "normal" to have caught my attention.
Prior to allergy season kicking in (and us renewing our use of Singulair), M2 had been consistently cuddly, polite, and even keeled--even though she is still a firecracker. She had not had a tantrum of any kind in awhile.
Over the past week or so, I've noticed an increase in her activity level--almost hyper (nothing new)--as well as her aggressiveness. Last night, all hell broke loose. She went berserk in a manner akin to some of the raging she did before I realized she is very sensitive to oral steroids. I distinctly remember telling the staff at the hospital that when, at 2 1/2, she had her tonsils removed. She was dosed up anyway and in a matter of moments, I found myself on the receiving end of several stabs from a piece of heavy-duty plastic cutlery I had been eating with--M2 snatched it from my hands and went wild.
After last night, I decided to call the doctor and see what our options are for the girls. M1 appears to be holding her own, but M2 seems to be having issues. Maybe there is something else they can use to keep her respiratory problems in check during allergy season? Back to the drawing board, I suppose.
In other non-studying news, I'm having my hair done today...thank God. It's time. My roots are ridiculous!!
