I seriously feel as though I have lost a week of my life.
I can't tell you how long it's been since I've had such problems with allergies. This time, I managed to launch myself into a nice full blown sinus infection with throat glands the size of baseballs. And I'm sad to say that even though my throat felt like the 7th layer of hell, I was still smoking... What is wrong with me? I'm really going to need to stop that sometime soon.
I usually manage to avoid these problems at this type of year by using a product called "Sinus Support Compound" by a company called Herbal & Alchemist, and by taking the occasional shot of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water with a few shakes of cayenne pepper thrown in for good measure. Maybe I wasn't as diligent as I should have been because WOW did I ever suffer. I'm still not at 100%, but Tylenol, Sudafed, and a few gargles of warm salt/cayenne water have helped a lot.
I'm finally feeling a bit more like myself - I had been walking around in this fog and it was driving me crazy!
