Tis the season…

I have been miserably hibernating for the last 5 days, victim to early spring’s war on the immune system. Without fail, every single year. It starts off innocently enough. The weather warms unseasonably, we bask in the warm sunshine with a gentle breeze rolling across our shoulders. The birds start chirping optimistically, and the slightest hints of greens, yellows, and pinks start creeping into view. We brave the outside more, breathing it all in.

And then, our bodies betray us.

What starts off innocently enough as a sniffle, a slight tickle in the throat quickly develops into a full blown case of allergies. And then, after two days of sniffing, the mucus settles in and before you know it you’re in the midst of a full blown sinus infection. I have used more tissues and over the counter drugs in the last week than I have in the last six months. I have somehow narrowly escaped the full blown misery throughout all of the other weak spots throughout the past few months (early fall, and mid-winter in particular) but not this time.

I have no energy, no patience, and more snot than I care to think about. Here’s hoping I continue to feel a little better today because tomorrow it’s back to work again, which means non-stop talking all day long. There’s nothing worse than talking when your ears won’t pop, the whole world sounds distance, and each sound you manage to shove through your vocal chords strikes your brain like a pick-axe.

Hope you’re all beating the early spring sinus woes!
