miss misery

one of the great joys of life is that no matter how old you get, you’re constantly changing and learning.

except… not so fucking joyful when you change from a previously *non-hayfever sufferer* to a massive hayfever sufferer. and not so joyful when you learn that hayfever feels like someone has stuffed your sinus cavities full of big wads of that pink fiberglass insulation.

oh my god, i’ve never known such misery existed. itchy, painful, congested, drippy, puffy, pressure.

that is all.

    I get it too. It’s grim. And antihistamines give me headaches, so I have to ration them. I read up about natural antihistamines – basically fresh fruit and veg, so I’m stuffing myself with salad.

    Gute Besserung, dear Jen.

    Benadryl with a Diet Coke chaser. Only thing that works for me.

    yeah, right now loratadine isn’t cutting it. though i guess you’re supposed to start taking them *before* it gets bad.
