As a seasonal change, I like Winter. It can be refreshing on a nice day, and devilishly cold on those darker days.
What gets me down is my allergies. These didn’t manifest until last year, and I forgot all about them. The fungal spores from decomposing leaves is wreaking havoc with my health. Fortunately I’m a little in front of the eight ball with anti-histamine. The extent of that seemed to not reach my eyes.
They are red, sore and itchy. As someone who wears glasses, not wearing them does give me some relief – though I don’t know why. My work has me working on computers day long, for which I need glasses to see. Its frustrating.
Fortunately these past few days has been part of an extended weekend so I’m getting some recovery time in. Its slow going. A variety of eye drops certainly helps. Sleep when it isn’t alluding me, does wonders.
One more day to recover and then back to it. I wholly expect to not be 100%. Fortunately I work in a supportive team and have a variety of tools to augment my work until the symptoms clear up. The kids pitch in at home by making sure toys and such are clear of walkways. Without my glasses I can’t see clearly beyond my arms length.
The cats are learning too, be wary of me in this state. Though when I sit down to rest up, they quickly avail themselves by hopping up for a cuddle to get warm.
