The dark side of that Sudafed, at least for me personally, is that after it wears off in about 4 hours, I usually wake up and am wired, I'm guessing because Sudafed has caffeine or some other stimulant in it. I woke up this morning and it was about 3 in the morning.
I tossed and turned for a while and then got up for some water. I happened to turn on the TV, which is never advisable at 3 AM. Weird things are usually on. I mean, who wants to watch a Lou Dobbs rerun in the middle of the night? Creepy...
Anyway, the news was on and it sent me back to bed in a hurry. In the glow of a 3:15 newscast, the European stock market had basically been shut down temporarily to avoid a further panic and the Asian markets had completely tanked.
So I went back to bed, in the hopes of having a better nightmare.
