While I thought I was getting better last week, it turns out I was only to get much worse. And if I wasn’t sure I had allergies, I have definitely confirmed it with the missing symptom: itchy, watery eyes. It all reached a climax Friday night, when for the first time in my life, I woke up feeling like I had to claw my eyes out. Literally, the entire night, my eyes were itching SO bad, and I just kept ripping at them with my fingers. Being in a semi-drugged half-sleep state, I didn’t realize what was going on, yet somehow I was quite terrified that I was going to scratch out my eyeballs. So instinctively, I kind of sleep-walked to the bathroom, turned on the faucet, waited for hot water, and wetted a washcloth and lay it over my eyes, which did soothe them and keep them from itching for a while. But then it just got cold and wet, and I woke up in a cold wet sopping mess.

Anyhow, the health clinic is only open M-F, so I am going in first thing Monday morning to get an appt for prescription allergy medication. I’ve had enough of this, and the generic Sam’s Club allergy pills are not working.

So being sick + school starting are the primary reasons I haven’t written much…in case you were wondering.
