Yes, you read that right. This allergy is definitely killing me right now. I am so annoyed with these non-stop sneezing and cough and itchy eyes and red eyes and itching in the body and lack of energy and fucking fever to make it worse.
But what allergy is this? And why have I never mentioned it before in my 1.6 years of blogging?
This allergy is known by different names like seasonal allergy or pollen allergy or hay fever or seasonal allergic rhinitis ( that sounds like a dinosaur, but sadly it’s not extinct).
Basically, plants and trees conspire together that-Hey, let’s fertilize each other and they start spreading pollen everywhere. This is their way of reproduction and due to this powdery stuff, innocent (and handsome) bystanders like me have to endure.
Well, this is an idiotic pollen allergy that I have right now. All the trees and plants are against me, and I’m their wanted man, and they want me dead.
Fucking season is changing, and I never cared about it, until it started affecting me. For some people trees shedding their leaves is lovely and romantic…. They are like aww look at the leaves falling and it’s so cute (Cheesy AF). Even kids and animals like it, as they just want to play with the tower of fallen leaves.
Only 2 categories of people hate this. The first is me, who’s suffering from this shitty allergy and the second is everyone who has to clean all those damn fallen leaves.
I never considered mentioning this allergy here before as it was manageable. I mean 50–100 sneezes are nothing in front of what I’m experiencing this time. This time it’s affecting my blogging life because I don’t feel like writing anything due to exasperation. I had a blog planned for women’s day, but that ain’t happening.
Also, I feel less efficient. I am getting tired very easily at the gym and this reduced my overall output. I couldn’t even go to the ground for running (which I absolutely miss).
I’ve seen and read many videos and blogs, that say do this, do that. But trust me those are some lies and those never work. I mean, in one blog I read, to avoid trees and plants and stay indoors all the time. But, how the fuck is that even realistic? I mean, if this last for a whole year, does that mean that I stay indoors forever? Even during the pandemic, we used to go outside.
And funny thing is, I have a whole army of plants and trees around me, and I cannot avoid that.
What I personally do
is wearing a mask and using eye drops for red eyes. I have no solution for the headaches because I don’t want to take unwanted medicines.
The mask helped me a bit outdoors, but masks have limits and they cannot protect forever. I am also using nasal drops this time. That helped me a bit. Homeopathy treatment is a bit helpful as well. My sister is a doctor and her treatment is helping me to survive. My father suggested me Pranayama, but that’s like inviting sneezing, so I am avoiding that for now.
I’ve seen some people get some respite when they leave a certain food. But, I don’t want to stop eating anything, so no thanks.
That’s it for now!!
I’ll be back with a proper health blog next time (When? That I don’t know). If you want to read a health blog right now, then check out FGW and there you will find tons of high-quality blogs, written by your next favorite blogger.
And until then Keep shining
