Every year is the same. I’m happily taking care of my kids, writing, cleaning, cooking, and subbing. The last week of February rolls by and the plants cast their spell. Abracadabra! I inexplicably don’t like anything, I need to sleep all the time, and nothing is fun or easy. Welcome to allergy season!
So far in my search for the antidote I fixed up the house, got allergy shots, eat a gluten-free diet, do saltwater rinses, and take allergy medicine around the clock. Every change has helped. Still, I’m just not myself for 6 months. Maybe I need to move north where the pollen season is shorter. I wonder where I should live.
