"You Are getting Sleepier..."

God I am so tired. I feel sick I'm so tired. I'm feeling, not just tired...depressed, apathetic, and amotivated. All I want to do is hide out under the covers.

I get up in the morning, without much trouble, though my puppy is waking me at night. I am trying to just get out of bed in the a.m when he want out, which is 7:30 or so. I am okay for a few hours and then, where I used to wait for 4pm to show up so I could have a nap, now I am waiting for 2 or 3 pm. I just feel like collapsing then.

Yesterday it was 1:30 by the time I got home from my drawing class and took my puppy for a walk. On the walk I thought he got stung by a wasp on his foot, so we came in from the field. We both fell asleep for about an hour and then I woke to him rubbing his face. I looked at him and his eyes were so swollen they were almost shut. I started to panic because I have two sisters who swell up and go into anaphylactic shock if stung by a bee; meaning they keep epipens (adrenaline? needles) with them at all times.



(Here is the poor swollen guy)

Images of my puppy suffocating were going through my mind. I called the vet and they said to give him Benadryl (which I actually had, because my other dog had reactions to bees) I just needed to know how much to give a puppy. After the Benadryl the swelling slowed down and stopped and in a 6 or 7 hours it went down to almost normal. It freaked me out though and I put him in bed with me so I could feel him breathing. When he stopped swelling we both slept until almost 5pm.
