Spring Pollen Season – Day Thirty-Seven

Today’s pollen count was 7.2, which isn’t good for me but is heading in the right direction. I need about two weeks straight of the pollen count being 6 or lower before I can get better.

It rained a little bit today, on and off, which also provided intermittent help.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Thirty-Six

The pollen count is 7.4, which isn’t good for me. It’s better than the nine previous days (where the pollen count was between 9.0 and 10.4).

I remain nocturnal, trying to get work done before the sun comes up and the plants spew pollen into the air – again.

Everything hurts.  I’m at the point now where this pollen season has been going on for so long that it’s beginning to feel like my new “normal”.  This is a depressing observation.

It is literally too dangerous for me to go outside.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Thirty

Question for anyone reading this.  Have you ever been sick for 30 days/ an entire month?  I figure this is not very common, even among people with allergies.

The instant the sun came up I started sneezing, having a runny nose, having a severely unhappy digestive system, and bad joint pain.

The cumulative effects of the pollen – for the past month – are becoming devastating.
