Diagnosed with a sinus infection this morning.
Skipped the rest of my classes so I could catch up on sleep and I feel loads better with antibiotics and some good old apple cider vinegar.
I have an air purifier next to my bed to collect nasty things in the air.
This is my life.
Allergies are literally ruining my life.
The past few months especially has been a living hell with relentless itching, sneezing, congestion.. the works.
I’ve literally been waking up to a graveyard of sad, used tissues next to me while I battle it out in between sleeping.
I’m so frustrated and desperate for a solution. It feels like 6+ years of diligent immunotherapy and getting 1-2 shots every week for those years suddenly has reversed all its benefits and I feel like I did in high school again.
Doctor put me on a 2nd five-day course of steroids but even that can’t continue for long because the side effects are really bad.
At this point I’m willing to do anything for some more permanent relief. I just don’t know what my options are. Get checked out by an ENT? Try acupuncture? Fuck the environment for producing such shitty allergens, and fuck my immune system for its overzealous production of antihistamines and its inability to respond to treatment.
