Finally, the pollen, or whatever it is I am allergic to, has worked its magic and I can sleep and otherwise ride out this annoyance. Because now I CAN sleep.
Thank you, allergens.
I went to bed about 830 PM. last night, woke up around 1:00 AM, stayed awake for a couple hours, then back to bed. I awoke again around 7:30, have been awake since, but am now ready for more sleep.
