Reading this post about how it’s a Federal offense to buy too much cold medicine has me bummed out. You see, this impacts things like Benedryl, which we’ve been permitted by our doctor to give to my daughter from time to time when she can’t sleep. She often has a racing mind and can’t find her own way down to sleep, and sometimes, Benedryl helps.
The law is meant to combat people making crystal meth. Instead, it impacts me trying to help my daughter find occasional peace before bed.
Not really sure what I want to say here, but man, I sure don’t like when laws have unintended consequences. Oh, and I’m writing this at 3:51 AM in my time zone. I wish I could get a little sleep, too.
