So, maybe it was a bad idea to quit taking my allergy medicine in the middle of pollen season. Before my surgery I was so careful to not get sick. I washed my hands as if I had OCD. I faithfully took a homeopathic cold medicine. To vitamins and Claritin, I was faithful. A couple of weeks after the surgery was over and everything seemed to be healing well, I decided to stop taking the Claritin. Whaaaaaaa????????
A couple of days later, when I was in the throes of coughing, hacking, teary eyes, and fatigue, I started taking the Claritin again. So far, it hasn't helped much.
M went to Long Island to do a century ride and so I am home alone. My plan was to get lots of snips done. Mostly I have just lain on the sofa, however. The most I could muster up to do was to draw some sketches of me in various states of exhaustion.
Oh, I did ride my bike three blocks and back....with a surgical face mask on so as not to breathe in any more pollen than I had to. Cute.
