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…
