Allergies Suck Ass

Its April 25th and today I woke up with only sneezing one time. Within the past month I have been sneezing non-stop when I wake up from my daily slumber. I asked my doctor a few weeks ago if I could get a refill on my allergy medicine and I got no response. To tell you the truth though, I have never been diagnosed with allergies nor do I even know what I am allergic to. Is having allergies something you get diagnosed with anyways? These are the question I ask myself as the age of 30 looms over me like a rain cloud waiting to burst.

I live in the Ohio Valley so that’s one red flag. Like I said I’m not sure what I’m allergic to but I am assuming its pollen. But here’s the kicker, from a quick Google search I have discovered that my allergic reaction can be from one of 3 types of different pollen! Do I sound illiterate now? The lack of research I have done for myself is belittling. Oh let me not forget that I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to cats and dust. Dust is a given, I have always sneezed from that but the cat allergies were new. I can remember it like it was yesterday, I was hanging out with my Buddy Eric as his house smoking some pot and his roommates cat came downstairs to greet us. “Hey Pepe,” Eric says as he reaches down to pet him. As soon has he ruffles his fur right beneath me I instantly started sneezing. I looked at Eric and said “I think I may be allergic,” which caused Eric to dramatically say “SHOO!” to the cat, lol.

All in all, I’ve been sneezing a lot here lately and my nose runs constantly. I’ve found some 24hr allergy medicine that is similar to what my Doctor gave me a year ago and I think that is helping. I just started taking it so we’ll get some real results here in a few days. Other than that I think I’m going to jot some ideas for my next blog post which will be about manga that I have been reading. I’ve been wanting to talk about manga for a while on my blog and I think right now would be the perfect time. Until then…

Allergies Or…?

On Monday it felt pretty warm so I decided I would go to the skatepark and pick up where I left off the last time I was there. 5-0 kickflip out is a hard trick and trying to master it on a fairly warm evening was difficult. For the most part, I have the 5-0, which is rather a simple trick but the hard part came when I would try and kickflip out of it. Sadly it didn’t happen but during the process I began to feel weird. My spit started to get heavy and I started spitting everywhere.

Once I got back in the car I was still feeling okay but my throat surely wasn’t having it. I had to ride back home with the window rolled down so I could keep spitty nasty loogies (LOL). Besides that, when I got home I still felt okay, even cracked open a bottle of Cloud N9ne and sipped on it as I made my way to work. Slowly though, I began to feel the struggles of Allergies creep up on me. Allergies are annoying. The only problem is that I never know whether it’s a cold or allergies. Like right now I feel great minus my sinuses and the cough but I can go run around the block 3 times if I wanted too.

If I had to blame anyone it would be my mother but I love her too much to be like “DAMMIT MOM! IT’S YOUR FAULT!” Besides, she would look at me and probably curse me out in her native language, leaving me dumbfounded as to what she said.
