I think (or, more to the point, I hope) that it’s not a bug at all, but allergies that have me snorting and gasping and feeling generally unwell. I’m a walking snot factory at the moment (lovely, huh?) and am finding that all the time I spend hanging upside down in yoga practices (this being a Yoga National Guard weekend) doesn’t help matters in the least.
I’m certainly functional and haven’t yet approached miserable; I’m more annoyed than anything else. I’m trying to tough it out during the day time – I neti in the morning and am trying to stay well-hydrated all day, and I’m doing my best to ignore the goopy nose and wildly itchy ears (MAN! If I didn’t know how dangerous it is to stick things in one’s ears, I’d be rooting around in there with anything that would fit! The itchy is insane!). I’ll take something for the symptoms at night, both because lying down exacerbates the effects and because most allergy medicines make me stupid and unfit for anything but sleep.
The funny bit is that we’re not even in full-blown allergy season yet. Yes, things are starting to bloom (and, it would seem, that I’m sensitive to whatever is blooming now) but the REAL pollen attack is still several weeks off. Just you wait; I’ll take a picture of my black car all done up in a yellowish-green dust so you can see for yourself. It amazes me every year. I don’t think I’m allergic to whatever that pollen is, though, so my hope is that I’ll dry up whenever whatever it is that’s sprouting now finishes its run.
Happy Saturday, Everyone!
