Allergies: Fatigue and Misery are Two of the Better Symptoms!


The plan was, and has been all along, to find stuff in my old journals to post in my blog midweek, and to post something more recent on the weekends.  Since I've been posting about the movies from last year I liked the most, or was the most disappointed by, that means I've been writing some more recent stuff in my journal from January that I haven't posted yet, like this entry from January 17th where I talk a little bit about what ails me (and since then, I've gotten even worse, just getting over a horrible cold compounded by severe allergies that turned into an raging ear infection):
From, this
is not my eye: Sometimes, mine look worse!

There are times I don’t feel well.  I don’t know if I’m tired, or depressed, or just suffering from allergies, or maybe all three, but today is one of those days.  I feel like crying.  My eyes are puffy, I can’t get my hair right, the shirt I was going to wear is too small, I broke the button off my slacks trying to button it over this gut, the new shirt I put on I don’t particularly like, and I had to iron it because the collar looked horrible.  The ironing board is full of clothes so I had to try to iron around them or move them.  I had to kill a spider right by the computer just now.  I have a bad headache and my eyes are still puffy and watery and I have to go to work in less than an hour.  My eyes look terrible.  I look terrible!  I feel terrible.  I just got back from Bellco because my CD is maturing.  The woman I talked to now wants me to speak with a specialist about consolidating all my accounts, but I’m not sure if that’s what I want to do, or if I want to do it through Bellco.  Financial advisors that are affiliated with one bank have an agenda for that bank, don’t they?
     I’ve just felt unreal today.  I will try to cheer up before I head out the door again, but this morning all seems like a dream.  Mom went bowling and then up the hill with Rose, and I got up and watched the first episode of season 3 of SYFY’s Being Human before having my troubles described above.  (I still like the show, but it seems to be getting too dark, with all that really creepy stuff going on - Aiden in a coffin, then used as a blood bank, and all those other diseased vampires, and that gross witch, and Josh and Nora having to dig up two old corpses to bring Sally back from limbo).
     I’m starting to feel a little hungry, and I’ve got to do my exercises before I go and check the mail, so I better get crackin’!  But I still have this horrible headache!

     And after retrieving the mail and eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, I can now pretty much determine that most of it is from these dreadful sinuses and allergies.  Thank God I’m seeing an allergist on Monday!
