Sick (of) With Allergies

3 years ago

For the last 5-6 days, I've been experiencing a foggy head and dizziness, along with stomach sickness.  No, I'm not pregnant.  That question has been asked numerous times.  

I first believed that it was something I had eaten, turkey.  Yes, I know, I did cheat and eat some turkey last week.  That's only because I had purchased it for my godson.  After he had gone home, I realized there was lots of turkey left, and didn't want it to go to waste.
  
But I began to realize that I would start feeling sick once I had gone outside.  I tried taking allergy meds, and there was no relief.  My brother checked the allergens and found the mold to be considerably high.  So, I guess that's what's been affecting me.

The problem is that this is forcing me to be in the house.  I can't become a prisoner in my own home due to allergies!!  I have work to do, students to tutor!!  I can't have a foggy, dizzy head when I need my brain to do math calculations!!  I can't be nauseous all the time when it is essential that I eat daily!!  I don't want to miss out on all these beautiful summer days because of ALLERGIES!!

These last 5 years, most of my doctor visits have been due to allergies.  Well, I guess it's time to visit the doctor again.  Get the allergy test done to clearly identify my aggressors (dreading being pricked).  Get some meds that will alleviate the symptoms.   Just get a break from these allergies.  :(
