So that “cold” lasted over 2 weeks and never really left my sinuses. (Mine usually land in my chest at the first available opportunity and stay there for weeks,) I didn’t feel overly sick. I had a scratchy throat from drainage and my nose ran none stop, but that was it.
I got away with explaining to my customers I was blowing my nose because of allergies. And as time went on I began to believe it. I knew allergies were really bad this year. I knew people who didn’t have allergies had them this year. So it made sense it could be allergies. I also noticed that I was worse at work, which is out in the country part of town where shit is growing (I pass a cornfield among other things on my way to work, or did when corn was in season) and live in the, not so country part of town. So more evidence that it could be allergies.
Everyone assured me once we had the first freeze, I would magically be better. So I had that to look forward to. But in the back of my mind, I had a little voice telling me it could just as easily be a mild cold brought on by stress and weather change. Only time would tell.
So the other day I was magically mostly better. And I knew it had been cold the night before so I was kind of curious if it had froze. Sure enough, I asked Pat and it had. So welcome to seasonal allergies, I guess.
On the other hand, I still have to blow my nose on occasion so I’m not 100% so it really could have been a cold.
I’m so confused.
Anyone with allergies know if I should be 100%, or just 95% better after the first freeze?
