Anyone who knows me well is aware that I suffer from a wide variety of allergies. I have a tendency to try and put my suffering into a poem. I wrote this poem on a Tumblr blog that no longer exists.

I read “Vicious Cycle” on episode 067 of Words of Jen.

My allergies make me too sick to concentrate on work.

My allergy medicines take away symptoms, but makes me sleepy.

Being sleepy makes it even harder to concentrate on work.

Lack of ability to concentrate, while sleepy, makes me take a nap.

Naps make me sleep for hours and hours.

Sleeping for hours and hours makes me behind on my work.

Falling behind makes me stay up all night trying to catch up on work.

Staying up all night means that I am awake when the sun comes up.

The sun coming up means the flowers start spewing pollen into the air.

Pollen causes my allergies to flare up.

My allergies make me too sick to concentrate on work.
