For the last week or so I've felt even lazier than normal, and that's saying a lot, I didn't feel like doing anything so I've been sitting around most of the time. And to make it worse I didn't feel very well, not sick or anything like that, just not really good.
This morning I took a walk around the area for half hour or so and came back not only feeling worse but sneezing like a man..... That was... Sneezing too much. After going through half a box of Kleenex it suddenly occurred to me that my allergies have come back with a vengeance.
I've had allergy problems before and they kind of come and go depending on where I'm at and what kind of plants are in the area. they will make me feel lethargic and if it's bad enough I will feel achy like I'm getting the flu. but allergies have been just a minor annoyance since I've been full timing. But I think all the plants that are blooming around here right now are starting to be a problem.
When I was here that first month I felt just fine but none of the trees and bushes around here were blooming. But now it seems like they're all blooming and it's got me feeling kind of puny.
I went to Walmart and got some over-the-counter Aleve allergy medicine and hopefully that will help. Past experience has taught me that nothing will make it completely go away, even the expensive prescription stuff I've taken in the past, but hopefully it will make me feel better than I do now.
Not to be confused with the Ahh-Choo tree this is Blackbush which competes with the Ahh-Choo tree to see how many people it can make sneeze. The bush is a source of amphetamine which among other things suppresses your appetite. I would chew on a limb to see if it works but unfortunately they have thorns all over them.
I would hate to run away from a bunch of flowers screaming like a little girl, But if I don't start feeling better pretty quick I may have to pack up and move to a different location where the plants are more friendly. Since it's pretty much springtime it might be hard to locate a place where flowers aren't busting out all over. There are two places that come to mind and both are in New Mexico. One is named City of Rocks state Park, and the other is, White Sands National Monument. Maybe being surrounded by rocks or sand would solve my sneezing problems.
