Rubber Ball Come Bouncing Back to Me
My allergies kicked in big time yesterday. My nose is like a red leather ball that has seen better days. Although I took the drugs that usually give me relief, they did not even touch this attack. My nose is stopped up (When I was a kid I thought it was "stomped up" which may be more appropriate) and yet I have drainage down my throat and trickling out of the one nostril that can get air. My lips are swollen and chapped, and strangely enough when I touch them, I can barely feel them. My head is heavy and my ears are going to explode. If I could scratch my teeth with my tongue, I would. I did not sleep much last night. I would go back to bed, but when I recline, my nose completely shuts down. I would like to be blogging something more happy and exciting, but this is overwhelming. If you need me for anything, just follow the trail of nasty, used Kleenexes. Pray for me.
