Let’s Get Healthy: Day Thirty-seven (AKA Why Do We Have Sinuses Again?) #romancefit
Time on Treadmill: 30 minutes.
Desire to pour Drano into my sinuses: Rising.
Oh, Texas. I really don’t know why you don’t post a sign on your borders that reads, “Welcome to Texas — here are your adult onset allergies.” I never needed antihistamines on a regular basis until I moved here, and climate change has made all of that even worse because it’s humid as hell down here now. Needless to say, the plants absolutely love this and are pumping out tons of pollen in celebration.
To make matters worse, it’s affecting the cats. Poor Jessie and Jaz keep sneezing, a number of them keep throwing up big puddles of mucus, and JJ (AKA Mr Sensitive to EVERY Allergen) is overgrooming again which means I get to stick half a Chlor-trimeton down his throat every day to give him some relief. I can live with aching sinuses and feeling like crap, but I don’t want to see the furkids dealing with this, as well.
Oh, and dealing with this while working in a hot garage? So much fun. I wear a mask because I deal with a lot of particulate matter and fumes from heating metal, but I still tend to come in with a sore throat and aching ears. But at least I have pretty jewelry as a reward, so that’s something. Now if people would only buy it…
