I rested which was actually nice. I felt guilty sure, but I did it anyways. My family caught the stomach bug, and I was sick for a week so I started binge watching the X Files. My parents think it`s funny that I am enamored with a show they used to watch. They also think I`m weird, because now I quote it all the time. I am basically Mulder.
I have no social life, and I don`t care enough to do anything about it. I have people I could call, but I prefer binge watching shows and eating pickles.
After that flu was over with I had about three days of health, before I started getting a cold. My immune system is crap, but that is nothing new. I have had health issues all my life, when I was younger I got horrible migraines and stomach aches, turned out to be caused by food allergies. I am allergic to dairy, wheat, peanuts, and the whole human race. Erhm I mean pollen.
The food ones aren`t horrible, so I have gone on various diets, but always went back to eating everything. This year I didn`t bounce back like I used to, I got super run down. I felt horrible, I had one of those moments, where I knew I had to change this. So long story short, I am now on a somewhat Paleo diet, I allow myself my few vices sugar in the form of pop, chips, and sour patch kids. Mostly I have been eating pretty healthy, and feeling better for it.
I`m like Gansey guys!! ( kudos to whoever gets that reference)
It would be nice to say I grew out of this allergy, but I seem to have one almost every year. I reacted badly to our Christmas Tree one year, and ended up with a scaly rash up both arms and my face. Nothing like spending Christmas in the E.R. I usually have to take steroids to deal with the hives.
You might be wandering why I am suddenly bring all of this up, it`s not to complain. I am so used to my allergies now, that they are just a part of life to me now. It`s just to help explain what`s going with me at the present. My dad and I went kayaking on the lake, it was lots of fun and I hope to do it again this summer, but a lot of water splashed on me and I was wearing pants, simply because I had no shorts, and now I have those itchy hives all over my legs.
Thanks for hanging in there!
