Today, the pollen count is 8.3.

Yesterday, a relative gave us some stuff that was in bags. The relative is very kind, but lives in a house that has a lot of allergens in it. They couldn’t possibly know that the scent on the bag (from the scented stuff in the house) would make me sick. But it did. It took me hours to figure out that the scented bag was making me sick.

So, I took half a Benadryl before going to sleep.

I woke up sick anyway, in part because of pollen, and also because of “allergy hangover” from the scented bag.

Went grocery shopping anyway, and even had the energy to play Pokémon GO for about 15 minutes with my husband.

…And then, I needed a three hour nap. This is due to exposure to pollen (because I went outside) and due to fibromyalgia (because I walked around).

But, before I went to sleep, I got a tiny bit of paid work done.

I’m tired of being tired.
