Oof. I’m a mess. I can’t tell if what’s going on here is allergies, or if I’m actually sick, but I feel like crap. I woke up yesterday with some congestion in my left ear. Then later in the morning I spent time with an adorable dog to whom I am also quite allergic. I knew that going in, so I was hopped up on Claritin and Sudafed as a precaution. The rest of the day was gradual decline as my sinuses got more and more swollen. I made it through last night thanks to a double dose of Benadryl. (Apologies to my wife, because Benadryl makes me snore.)
More Sudafed this morning. It helps with the sinuses, and keeps the unpleasant sensation in my ear under control. Thankfully I don’t have much I have to do today beyond laundry and a little house-cleaning.
And maybe a nap.
