Season Journey Chapter II (Season 9)

Chapter II of the Season Journey for Season 9 didn’t take me as long as I expected. But, I was still way behind where I thought I’d be.  As I mentioned in the blog I put together about Chapter I, my game time was split between Season 9 and the new Darkening of Tristram event.

This is not a complaint.  It’s nice to have so much to do in Diablo III – and to be very interested in doing all of it!

Spring Pollen Season – Day Seventy-Four

I was still awake in the wee hours of the morning, so I checked the pollen count for today.  I was pretty tired, but I swear it told me that the pollen count would be 6.0 today.  The five day forecast indicated that the pollen would be lower than 7.0 for five days straight.  I went to sleep feeling optimistic.

Hours later, after I woke up, I checked the pollen count again.  It clearly said that today was 7.2. The five day forecast no longer indicated days of nice, safe, pollen counts.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Seventy-Three

The pollen count was 7.3 today.  I’m not itching, but I am blowing my nose a lot more than typical. When will this pollen season end?  Nobody knows.

There are a lot of people who are healthy, and who one day get a bad cold or the flu.  I have no doubt this makes them absolutely miserable.  A few days later, they are back to normal and have made a full recovery (energy level and all).

I’ve been sick from allergies for seventy-three days.  There have been … maybe five days… where the pollen count was lower than six (and safe for me).  This is horrific.  I’m tired of struggling all the time just to do basic things like go to the grocery store.

…And I just sneezed twice in a row immediately after typing the previous sentence.

Pokémon GO: My Pokédex

The tagline of all of the Pokémon games is: “Gotta catch ’em all!” I’m working on that – even though I doubt I’ll have the opportunity to catch the Pokémon that are not available in the United States.  It is unlikely that I’ll be able to afford to travel.  There is the potential that Niantic will allow trading of Pokémon – but I’m not counting on that happening.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Seventy-Two

Today, the pollen count was 8.  My original plan for today was to go outside and buy some clothes.  I hate shopping, and tend to hold off doing it until I’ve literally worn holes in items and need to replace them.  Walking around the store, and trying on a bunch of clothing until something fits, takes more energy for me than it does for healthy people.

I am still anemic, and simply do not have the energy to carry out that plan.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Seventy-One

Today, the pollen count was 7.8 and it was very windy outside.  I woke up sick and already experiencing allergy symptoms – itching eyes.  I am still feeling very anemic.

Put that all together, and it means I have almost no energy with which to be productive.  By “productive”, I mean “doing something that makes money.” This is the definition I hold myself to after decades of being poor.  Obviously, there are plenty of things that can be defined as “productive” that don’t result in money.  But, money pays the bills – so there’s where my head goes.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Seventy

Today, the pollen count is 7.5.  It’s not great.  Ideally, I need the pollen count to be 6 or less for about two weeks – and then I can recover.

I woke up anemic today, which is annoying, but not painful.  It adds to my exhaustion, and I already have low energy (due to fighting allergens for 70 days and also due to fibromyalgia). Anemia makes me very spacey and unfocused in a way that is completely different from what Benadryl does to me or what “fibro fog” feels like.

Spring Pollen Season – Day Sixty-Nine

Today, the pollen count is 8.0. Spring Pollen Season refuses to end. My sinuses have been burning and hurting for the past three or four days, and nothing I take does anything to change that.

When I experience pain, it is most often due to my rheumatoid arthritis and/or fibromyalgia. I tend to forget that allergy reactions can be very painful, too. Sometimes, I forget how bad my sinus pain is – until it suddenly reminds me.

I need Spring Pollen Season to end. It’s making it very difficult for me to get any paid work done. I’m sleeping so much that it feels like all I do is sleep and work and sleep and work.

Notes About Things in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt – Season 1

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is a Netflix Original TV series that is about a woman who is rescued from a doomsday cult. Kimmy is trying to make a new life. The show is goofy and weird.

I put together some notes about things that stuck in my mind after watching each episode.

Warning: There are spoilers.
