Hello and welcome to Monday! Mondays, my blog plan for the summer is to share some bits of information about myself to let you get to know the writer behind the blog. If you’ve read any of my past posts, you know that I’m an introvert and so this isn’t easy for me but I’m trying…
One thing I’ve been challenged with my entire life is allergies. I am allergic to a bunch of things including pollen, furry pets, grass, hay and even water. If you don’t have any allergies, I am super jealous of you! And if you do, I can empathize.
As a child, it showed itself on my skin. I was always scratching. Not realizing I was making it worse for myself, I didn’t hold back and my skin at times became extremely red and blotchy.
Now, I actually take two 24 hour anti-histamines per day (they only last 12 hours for me). On the really bad days, I need eye drops and an additional anti-inflammatory, like Naproxen. If I don’t take care of this, I suffer. For some reason, it seems to me that my allergy season is getting longer. In a bad year, I suffer from February to July. But, I am learning to avoid the things that cause me a problem.
How about you…do you have allergies? How do you cope during allergy season?
Don’t let Mondays and allergies get you down! Have a wonderful day 🙂
