Apparently, with all the sneezing, wheezing and whatnot, my coworkers thought I was sick. Sadly, this is just how I am at this time of year (how appropriate -- I sneezed while typing this). My allergies are on crack at this point.
I didn't think I felt shitty, but when my coworker said something, I started thinking about it.
Okay -- I don't feel sick. But I do feel kind of shitty. I'm sneezing a lot. I'm congested. I'm coughing. I've been using my inhaler a bit more than normal lately. My eyes are itchy. I've got headaches -- either due to sinus congestion, general dryness in my sinuses or because I've been using the shit out of my Flonase (plus, the tension headaches totally unrelated to my allergies). Apparently, I have a bit of a wheeze in my voice. My nose is dry, flaky and kind of raw. Oh, and all of this makes me feel extra tired. Sometimes it's just the allergy-related fatigue, but other times it is the drug-affected sleep (thanks, Benadryl!) or the drug-affected non-sleep (thanks maybe not so much, Sudafed).
But I'm not sick. This is my normal for this time of year. It sucks and as much as I hate to do it, I'm looking forward to the first good freeze. I'm totally open to unseasonably warm weather after the vegetation has been sufficiently frozen, however.
