June was not an easy month for me. I have a tendency to write haiku of frustration on Twitter when something is annoying me. In June, once again, most of my haiku were about my bad health. I keep struggling, and there doesn’t seem to be anything I can do to change that.

I’ve always been sick with severe allergies, but 2015 has been the worst year so far. I’m not ready to accept this very limited state of being as my “new normal”, and my haiku reflect it.

Falling asleep now
Much to do later today
Not all will get done

Sinus infection
At least, I think it is one
Doctor’s appointment
June 5, 2015

And as it happens
Already had appointment
Unrelated thing

Sinus infection
Was confirmed by my doctor

Going back to sleep
Until whenever I wake
Sick of being sick

Pollen count not high
Ones I’m bad allergic to
Lots of those today

Random floral scent
Is coming in my window
Sun isn’t up yet
June 16, 2015

Big bad allergies
Feel like a truck has hit me
Recovering now

Bag full of lemons
From tree outside my window
Covered in pollen
June 18, 2015

Suddenly having
A lack of motivation
Oh, right…Benadryl
