Well, spring is here in the great state of Michigan, which can only mean one thing for the Dirty Earthworm: every morning when I wake up, I will sneeze uncontrolably for two hours or more because it’s ALLERGY SEASON!
Oh, sure, the weather is great and I love the sun and the breeze and the driving around without having to turn the heat on, but I HATE HATE HATE having allergies. I can’t go outside for more than an hour without my eyes itching and drying out and my throat tickling and my nose becoming the mucus equivalent of a waterfall. My sinuses have decided to work in shifts; one can work while the other naps or eats lunch or whatever the hell it’s doing.
Granted, some days (like today) are worse than others. Hell, some days I don’t even notice anything. But shit … it’s days like today that make me wish I had a removable nose. Sure, I’d look pretty weird walking around without a nose, but it would be a damn sight better than sneezing every 15 seconds.
There isn’t really much I can do about it, either. I can’t take any OTC allergy medication, because it will knock me out, regardless if it is the “daytime” or “nighttime” formula. I can’t get a prescription for anything, because I have no insurance (but that will hopefully be changing here shortly), and apparently I can’t even post a pit thread about it, because doing so has just made me start sneezing again.
I am utterly fucked.
