My head is much better (thanks so much for all the sympathy) but now a sinus infection and a cough have made me sick as a dog and I can only muster up enough energy to post this photo of the cat from down the street.
Why the cat? Well, I know he's gorgeous and all that, but what I'm really looking for are some recommendations on allergy medications from people living in Germany.
You see, next week I'll be visiting Jen in Darmstadt. I understand that she has myriad cats, and seeing as Mother Nature has graced me with a wicked cat allergy, I want to be prepared instead of being reduced to a sniffling, sneezing, itchy mess. That's no fun.
I am Paul. Fear me. I have the power
to make you sneeze on command...
I'm familiar with Lorano (loratadine), which I've taken before in Canada under the name of Claritin, but I'd like to know if anyone has had a good experience in Germany with any other kind of antihistamine.
That's all for now. If you need me, I'll be the one snuggled up to a big bowl of boiling water with a towel over my head.
Oh, just one more thing - were you aware that when Germans sneeze it's "hatschi!" instead of "achoo!"? Fascinating, no?
