I am not feeling so well today, but I decided I would press on and attend church anyway.... until my husband collapsed on the bed and said he was feeling pretty horrible too. I knew there was no way the two of us, feeling equally crummy, would be able to attend. Since I was feeling icky, I was depending on my husband to do most of the "work", meaning... holding the baby during and after the service, feeding the baby, making sure the kids were taken care of.
We were really looking forward to today because we have not been to our church for two weeks (one week we were out of town and attended our old church in Louisiana, last week we didn't feel so hot either, and now this makes three weeks).
I have to admit, I'm pretty bummed, but I am thankful that we can always fellowship together as a family. (And we'll end up eating the rice dressing my husband made for the potluck fellowship meal as our own dinner... with plenty of leftovers.) Plus, there are some wonderful sermons online that I've been wanting to listen to.
Summer is one of my least favorite season because of the heat, but it is the only season in which my allergies are tamed. I ease by fall, but once winter comes around, I have to keep on track with my sinus/allergy medications or else I will not be of much use.
Spring is the worst of all, although it is the most beautiful season.
Now I'm not only dealing with my allergies, but with a gurgling stomach (which had me up several times in the middle of the night) and asthma issues as well. (Although allergies and asthma seem to go hand-in-hand anyway, it has been even worse lately.)
And, when you're already having problems breathing (due to a stopped-up nose), then it doesn't exactly help the asthma issue!
I feel like I can never get enough air!
I am currently taking Aleve-D (a medication kept behind the pharmacy counter which you can get without a prescription), and at night I add one Tylenol PM to that to help me sleep. If any of you have allergy/sinus issues, please let me know what works for you!
