I have an excess of mucus. There is mucus everywhere. Maximum mucosocity has been achieved.

If I don't take anything, I can sit very still and wipe my nose a lot. Eventually, the sinus drip will return and I will probably get another sore throat, but I can think, read, understand the television playing in the background.

If I take a Sudafed, I am free to run! Jump! Play! Breathe! But I feel like a muddle-headed zombie.

It's a 24-hour Sudafed. Decisions, decisions.
