cold, allergies, cold, allergies?

I'm not sure WHAT it is, but I just know that I'm feeling awful! I used to get a really bad case of hay-fever every Spring when I was younger, but for the last few years I seemed to have escaped it. I've also been really fortunate this year, and avoided any major colds! Usually I can count on one in the Fall and one in the Spring. Well just yesterday, I woke up and my throat felt awful. It hurt to swallow, to breathe; the only time it didn't hurt was when I was drinking or eating. I took Claritin yesterday morning, and it seemed to clear up my throat a little bit, but I still felt all congested and my eyes were bothering me. My eyes always hurt with allergies so that's what led me to take Claritin.
Last night my head was feeling awful, and throbbing, so I took a tylenol cold and slept like a baby. I had such a good sleep, but unfortunately my alarm clock came too early today. I woke up still feeling stuffed and really brain-"foggy." But, my throat felt better! So it's like the allergies progressed into a cold? I have NO idea. So this morning I took a Tylenol Cold Daytime and a 24 Hour Claritin... I hope that's not too unhealthy.
I'm trying to enjoy my sick day (hah!), wearing my favourite sweatpants, long sleeve T, and oversized cardigan sweater. It's not a pretty sight, but that coupled with green tea + honey, and The Office DVD made for a pretty entertaining morning. I'm hoping I can chase this thing (cold? allergies?) away soon, because I have a three shoots coming up, one Saturday, one Sunday and one Thursday. I was out scouting locations this past weekend, and found some great spots.
