I’ve been writing beautiful things about Spring, and all of them are true! The only complaint I have is the seasonal allergies it brings with it. I’ve never had such severe allergies as the one I’m having this year. Well, there was the rashes I got a couple of winters ago ( cold urticaria, or allergy to cold weather – yes, after a year of follow-up consultations with an Allergy doctor, I am allergic to cold weather), which I think triggered a cascade of other allergic symptoms that become apparent every Fall-to-Winter transition and early Spring. Since then, I’ve been taking an allergy tablet a day – I haven’t been very good at it the past two weeks, and I’m sure this just worsened my reaction to pollen. I am just bummed that I had to run on the treadmill instead of outside because my eyes are super-irritated. I had to buy antihistamine drops to soothe the inflammation – my eyes are puffy I look like I’ve been crying all night. I’m just glad this is just for a few days (I am hoping it will subside this weekend, I need to do my long run outside!).
