I know what you’re thinking: it’s only January. Yet, my hayfever has suddenly and quite vehemently reared its ugly head. I’m dizzy, have a sore throat, get headaches and worst of all: I can barely breathe at times.
Unfortunately for me, my meds don’t seem to be working and I have thus felt sick on and off for the past week. I don’t feel sick enough to stay in bed and hide under the covers for the next year or so, but it’s definitely bothering me. On Sunday I felt ready to fall over any minute, last week I couldn’t get over a sore throat and yesterday I had trouble raising my voice enough when teaching. After 2 hours I had lost my voice and was completely knackered.
Never have I ever experienced hayfever this bad. Let alone in January. However, it seems like this country has decided to skip winter and dive straight from fall (which didn’t start until November mind you) into spring. Birds are singing and building nests and the trees in my street are starting to get new leaves. And since that is happening, my hayfever is happening again too. Luckily for me, I have to see my allergy doctor on Thursday for my monthly shot so I can ask them what’s up and whether I can get some more prescriptions so I can get myself through this.
Do you have any allergies that have gotten worse because of this strange weather?
