Allergies

My throat is sore. My lungs hurt from coughing. My nose burns from wiping it. My head hurts from concentrating so hard on breathing.

Nonetheless, on my way home from the doctor's office, my hazy thought pattern kept bringing me back to how much I had to be thankful for. The thick coat of pollen covering my car is a reminder of why I feel this way and that it's only temporary. Things could be better, but they could also be much, much worse.

I have allergies. I am blessed.

Our pediatrician said St. Louis is one of the worst places to live if you have allergies.

Were your allergies bad in college?

If not, thought I should give you a heads up before you come down - I don't want you to be miserable!!!

You know, I don't really remember.

Though, the one summer I stayed down there I lived in Music House and it was so full of dust and mold and mildew that I was probably bad no matter what. Then again, I was taking meds regularly for it.
