I’m grumpy. Fair warning. If you hate reading rants you are dismissed. See you next time.
Exercise has been difficult this week. Monday was a typical Monday, meaning, exercise would be a bummer on any Monday. Then on Tuesday I had a doctor appointment. Got there to find out that I’d left home most of what I was supposed to bring. My Kindle, my blood pressure records that I FAITHFULLY write down twice/day, can’t remember what else right now. Anyhoo, my doctor had to take maternity leave due to complications. I should be concerned for her, but no, it’s ALL ABOUT ME AND MY INCONVENIENCES.
I liked the interim doc ok. The whole reason for the appointment was to see how the Singulair has been working for me. The verdict on that deal is NOT AT ALL. My sinuses are awful.
New doc wanted to prescribe Zyrtec, but I know from past experience that Zyrtec makes me take a nap everyday. And since I already am taking a nap everyday because I can’t get a decent night’s sleep (due to my sleep apnea) there’s no need to try the Zytec.
So he prescribed Allegra. I’ve never tried Allegra before. The doc said the only next step, if the Allegra isn’t the answer, is to get allergy shots. Can you say “NO WAY”? Drive in to town every other day for who knows how long? Not happening. So, I’m giving the Allegra the old college try, even though I dropped out of college, but that’s beside the point.
Now, Allegra is making me so tired I don’t even feel up to checking my email, much less exercising, or eating, or showering, or going anywhere, or watching tv, or reading a book, or pushing the easy chair back enough to kick out the foot rest. EXTREMELY TIRED.
I’m forcing myself. I feel like my adrenal glands are on vacation.
I did my exercise yesterday and today. 2 miles each day. That’s 4 miles of walking with NO ENERGY. Think how good I’ll feel if I quit taking the Allegra that’s supposed to make me feel good. Too tired to think that thru. Or type the whole word “through”. (forcing myself)
I think I’ll have to start keeping bees so I can have some SERIOUSLY LOCAL honey. That would do my allergies a world of good.
While I’ve been typing this I’ve been pondering my pitiful predicament (sorry, we watched Mr. Popper’s Penguins yesterday), and pondering is the kinder, gentler method of thinking, isn’t it? Anyway, I’m just gonna ditch the Allegra and start using the neti pot, and then I’ll have the energy to research bee keeping. It’s something John and I have long wanted to do.
Ok, that’s all the grumpy I got for now. Hasta la vista, baby!
