>These Are My Good Friends….Have You Met Them?


Over the weekend, I decided to sweep the carport. Shamefully, it had been some time since this had been done….needless to say, the accumulation of dead leaves, dust, pollen, etc., was not just a little bit.

I should state that I used to take allergy shots for trees, dust, and mold. (I stopped taking them when I kept reacting to the meds…) Goody for me-I have year round issues! I tend to get horrendous sinus headaches/migraines….but fortunately, I have found a pretty good system with Zyrtec…1/2 a tablet every 3 days…and it doesn’t dry me out too much.

In the mean time, if I get a sinus headache, I can usually knock it out with an Excedrin and a DayQuil…and a healthy (hahaha) dose of caffeine…

So anyway, I began sweeping off the carport…before 10 strokes of the broom, I was completely stopped up, my eyes were pouring water, and I couldn’t stop sneezing. I stubbornly finished the job….and now….even with Zyrtec, Excedrin, and DayQuil…I feel pretty crappy. My throat is scratchy, I’m losing my voice, I can feel all sorts of sinus pressure, my chest feels slightly heavy…and I want to go lay down…ugh!!!

I. Will. Not. Forget. To. Sweep. The. Carport. Again.

Lesson. Learned.

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.
