Question for anyone reading this. Have you ever been sick for 30 days/ an entire month? I figure this is not very common, even among people with allergies.
The instant the sun came up I started sneezing, having a runny nose, having a severely unhappy digestive system, and bad joint pain.
The cumulative effects of the pollen – for the past month – are becoming devastating.
All I can do now is take allergy medication (probably Benadryl), and sleep in a closed room with an air cleaner.
If I was working a “real job”, I’m certain I would have been fired long before now for having to take so many sick days in a row. I’m struggling to get my “not quite a real job” done as it is.
I’m frustrated because there is nothing I can do to stop this misery. I cannot start to get better (less symptomatic) until the pollen count drops to 6.5 or below for at least two weeks straight.
When I get this bad, I wish the reason I’m so sick is because of something I did. Because if I did the thing, and it made me this sick – then I could simply not do the thing – and not be sick.
But, it’s Mother Nature doing the thing – and no one can make her stop doing the thing.
