Today was Day 38 of the 2017 Fall pollen season. I’m still having difficulty eating because of the temporary cap that is in my mouth and all of the dental work that required.
I peeled the four potatoes that Shawn and I bought at the grocery store yesterday. He made them into mashed potatoes for me. For the first time in what feels like a very long time, I was able to eat and feel full.
The pollen count today was 6.4, which is heading in the right direction. As I’ve mention in previous pollen season blogs, I need the pollen count to go below 6 for at least a week or two before I will start to feel better.
The pollen forecast at pollen.com shows that the count is going down. This will be my last daily 2017 Fall pollen season blog post. I’ll do one more in about a week – if the pollen count behaves.
Earlier this year, I wrote a series of blogs about the 2017 Spring pollen season. I ended the series with a post that showed a week’s worth of “good” pollen counts. It seems fitting to end the 2017 Fall pollen season blogs the same way.
I desperately need to have the ability to recover. Between the allergens, the cooler weather, and the dental work I recently had done, I’m more exhausted than usual. Adults should not require as many naps as I need to take. With luck, the pollen will calm down soon, and I will get some semblance of a “normal” life back again.
