Allergies... yuck


Probably one of the more unpleasant things about living in New York is allergy season. It is so bad this year in New York that people who claim to have never experienced allergies are suffering from them this week. For me, they are at their worst because they are happening all at the same time. First of all, I am congested and sneezing. Not pleasant, but manageable. Yesterday I awoke to find my eyes itchy and swollen, and they were shedding tears, non-stop, for about 2 hours. That was pretty bad- but made worse by the fact that I had a film project to shoot. Thank Dog for makeup. The worst of the lot is that, in the midst of all that, I am having my first asthma attack since before I moved to NYC. I used to suffer from asthma horribly when I was a child, but it has subsided since hitting my late 20s and had all but disappeared since moving to NYC. I had to pull out my rescue inhaler, which is 2 years expired, and luckily it works for about 6 hours before having to use it again. If I don’t get better in a few days I am going to have to head to the doctor to take care of this. I hate going to doctors (I usually end up being stuck with needles, which is an immense phobia for me.) Hopefully ti subsides in a few days.

All of that misery, and it isn’t even warm yet! C’mon, powers that be, it’s MAY already. You teased us with 70 degree weather 2 weeks ago, and now we have been plunged back to the high 40s, low 50s again. It is supposed to be in the low 60s for the next week, and hopefully that sticks. We could really use some sunshine.

Yikes. That was a whole lot of negativity. Hang on... let me pull out some humor.

Ok- here’s a funny conversation I overheard on the subway yesterday:

Mom (to her 6 year old twin boys): Well, Linda and Tom are divorced, so I don’t know if they will both be there or not.

Son #1: They’re not coming?

Mom: Well, they might be. But remember? They are divorced, so I don’t know if they are coming together.

Son #2: Mom, are you and Dad gonna get divorced?

Mom: (looks over at me, looks back and says quickly): Of course not, honey.

I don’t know why that made me laugh, it just did.

Happy Spring to you, and in case of sneezing- bless you.
