To Tell... or Not to Tell

Posted Sep 12 2008 12:03pm
I overdosed on Zyrtec (allergy meds), and that's not a good thing. I'm so incredibly sleepy, it's unbelieveable. I feel like I'm in a fog -- Oiy. I felt my allergies coming on strong last night when the cool winds came in, so I figured, "I'll take 2 -- I'm going to bed anyway." Well, I'm paying for it today! Stupid me. I don't normally do that kind of thing with perscription drugs - but after feeling so miserable with the Strep, I didn't want to feel sh*tty again!

To totally shift gears without a clutch, I don't want to be a farse, but I also don't feel like sharing the fact I'm having surgery with the whole world -- well, the world at the office anyway. I just don't want to deal with potential negative energy I might receive from someone before going under the knife. Does that make sense?

I want happy thoughts, flowers and sunshine! :) I can come up with enough bad scenarios in my own mind!

I'm certainly confident with my decision, but I don't want to waste one breath trying to convince someone that what I'm doing is acceptable, despite associated risks.

The bottom line is, it's my choice. It's my body.

Therefore I've asked the few people at work who do know, to keep it on the QT. After the surgery, when I come back to work, I will share.
