Bleehhh. It's allergy season, so I'm going through my yearly round of "I can't breathe and consequently I can't sleep, and the lack of sleep/breathing is making me really depressed and anxious". At least I've figured out that this is a yearly thing my body does, which means that this too shall pass, and one day I shall be able to breathe through my nose and sleep though the night without the aid of multiple pharmaceuticals.

Speaking of multiple pharmaceuticals...I asked my mom to pick my up some Sudafed at the drug store the other day: specifically, the good kind of Sudafed, the kind you have to show an ID to buy because so many people around here apparently enjoy a little meth-producing as a side career. She came back from the pharmacy clutching a bulging bag full of my Sudafed and Midol, along with her (multiple, heavy-duty) migraine medications.

"I think they think I'm some kind of drug lord!" she whispered to me anxiously, as she passed me my share of the loot. She's probably not altogether wrong. Our family get SO MANY prescriptions, it's kind of embarrassing. They actually know us by name and sight at the pharmacy, and this is not a small little neighborhood drugstore. It's one of a big, impersonal chain. Still, I can go into the pharmacy, and any one of the five or so pharmacists on duty will be like, "LOL YOU AGAIN. Here, let me get your stuff for you!" Awkward.

...I don't remember where I was going with this little anecdote, probably because I'm super drugged up. Um.

Wait, no, I remember! I was going to say that, given my current zombie-like state, I've been slow responding to comments and emails and whatnot. I've been particularly slow in finishing up my [ profile] help_japan fics, and I'm super sorry about that. Jeez. Please forgive me, [ profile] wk_recomend and [ profile] mainekosama! I promise I haven't forgotten about you! I'm workin' on it, I swear!

...I think there was something else I was meaning to mention here, but I've forgotten it. lol allergy meds. I think I better do what they say and avoid operating heavy machinery for a while...

Isn't it crazy? I mean, how much meth can you get out of a single box of Sudafed, anyway? (Enough to make it desirable, obviously, I mean, but still.)

I know what you mean about pharmacists knowing who you are. *facepalm*

But don't feel bad about being slow with help_japan fics! I'm still not done with mine either. (I plead moderating the community and finals, but, you know, I think allergy-med-induced-daze is a pretty good reason, too!)

My mother said she had to show two forms of ID. TWO. And she had to sign her name in a register! All for a dinky little 20-count box of Sudafed! It's nuts.

I remember the olden days when you could just pick up a couple boxes off the shelf and pay for them without the DEA descending on the checkout counter. Ah, nostalgia...

Oh, good! I'm glad I'm not the only one who hasn't quite finished up her h_j stuff! I think you have a better excuse than I do, since I'm sure modding the comm must be tons of work. Plus finals! But yes, allergy-med-daze is quite effective at inhibiting productivity...

Two forms of ID. Okay, yeah, that's nuts. I haven't had to buy Sudafed for a while, clearly.

I feel really bad about not having finished my fic yet -- especially since when I do sit down to write fic, it's not what I want to write anymore.

So sometimes I cheat and work on something else for a few minutes for the fun of it.

Seriously, though? You are totally fine. Take your time :D (and if it makes you feel better, I've not yet finished my auction fic for my winner yet, either XD;; )

But more importantly, I hope the allergies pass quickly so you can breathe again *hugs* and feel better!

I know it must be bothersome for you, but I loved your story about the pharmacy - I'm like that with my city library ;). I hope the meds work!

Please don't worry about the writing, I can wait a long time (not that I am at that point and not for some time). A year, two, several, whatever you need (I think we are both still -somehow on my part :p- young enough to have plenty of time ;)).
