I Hate Allergies

I have chronic sinusitis...and I really thought I was going to get away without an outbreak this summer. Apparently I was wrong. Two days ago I woke up with a screaming sore throat. Last night we visited my parents and by the time I got out of their house I couldn't breathe...cat dander. :/

We came home and I took a benadryl and that was that...eleven hours of sleep. Although not uninterrupted sleep, it was nice. Apparently it still wasn't enough, all day long I kept having dizzy spells and profuse amounts of mucous leaving my nostrils. So, I really debated if I wanted to go out for a run tonight. The hubby thought it might be a good idea. At first it seemed like pure torture, but after a while it was okay. By the time we made it back I could actually breathe.

Then we took our showers and poof, I'm right back to the "elephant filled headache" and snotty face. Ugh...is it fall yet? How do you all deal? Do you force yourself to get out and walk/run or do you sit at home?

Still, I guess it wasn't too bad considering I managed a 16 minute pace.

Ugh. So sorry you're feeling crappy! And I'm super impressed that you went out... I probably would've taken a "rest" day ;) Kudos to you girl!!
