Today was Day 22 of the 2017 Fall pollen season. All I want to do is sleep, but I got up and finished some writing work anyway. This is not my cat. I found the photo on Pixabay and felt it was a good image to use to explain how exhausted I am right now. Pollen has a cumulative effect (at least, it does for me). So, the longer pollen season goes – the worse I feel.
The pollen count today was an irritating 8.6. My sinuses hurt, but this isn’t new. So far there is no sign that I have a sinus infection.
I did not have to go outside for any reason at all today – so I didn’t leave the house. This allowed me to sleep in and try and recover from not only Fall pollen season 2017, but also the recent doctor and dentist visits.
Overall, I would not recommend back-to-back appointments where a medical professional does things to your body that make it hurt and/or bleed during a pollen season. It is impossible to know for certain what the pollen count will be for more than a few days ahead, so I took my chances when I scheduled those appointments.
