Soon, it was here a sneeze / there a sneeze / everywhere a sneeze, sneeze. The back of my throat started itching. Not just a little bit, but the kind of itch where you would gladly shove a screwdriver down your throat if it would give you one single moment of relief. Now, for the crowning glory, my sinuses feel like they are full of concrete block.
Allergy season is upon us.
Fortunately, some frantic searching in the medicine cabinet resulted in an almost full package of OTC allergy meds. Un-fortunately, they don't last long. So while I had a blissful hour of only blowing my nose every 10 minutes instead of every 2 minutes (and even fell asleep for a bit), the meds have now worn off and I must wait patiently for another dose to kick in.
I am not a naturally patient person.
