It's Been a Long Week

This has been my week. Add to it runny nose and itchy red eyes. I really hate allergies. However I stopped taking my allergy meds on Sept. 6, 2016. Why, you might ask? Because I have an appointment with my allergist tomorrow Sept. 13, 2016 and have to have the allergy meds out of my system.

As a result, I'm not sleeping well. I find myself napping in the middle of the day and exhausted by bedtime. I've gone through a box of Kleenex and most of my hankies.

I will have a water bottle and a Zyrtec in my car to take as soon as I leave the allergist in the morning. At least when I take it, I am not miserable.

To add to this, I had my mouth prepped for a crown this morning. Now the numbness is gone, my mouth just aches. So between the two sleeping should be interesting tonight.

I empathize with anyone having allergies. I would not wish them on anyone. They seem to have gotten worse as I've aged. Aging can stop now.

I know there is an end to this and it is in sight. Twelve hours from now I will be sitting in the allergist's office. Thirteen hours from now I will have taken an allergy med. Within an hour I should be feeling some relief.



  1. Allergies are miserable! Mine have increased every year since I turned 40! It's always one more air-borne thing or food that is giving me the itch, wheeze or sneeze, or all three@! This season has been particularly bad because we've had so much rain in West Texas that the weeds are three feet high and flourishing. Achoo! Dental work isn't much fun either. The good news is that by the time you are reading this comment you should be starting to feel better again. I used to take Zyrtec faithfully, but it gave me to much of a morning hangover. Now I take Allegra Allergy and I like it much better, it doesn't make me groggy.

  2. Zyrtec no longer has the component which makes you sleep. Ugh. It is that I truly needed. But I have taken two and am already feeling better. Will go back to one a day as soon as I can.

I have moved from my home in South Carolina back to Michigan. It is currently under contract. Sorry no photo of my current residence. ...
