That'll teach me...

One minute I'm waxing lyrical about the joys of Spring, the next minute I'm in Hell...

Last year I had NO hayfever symptoms for the first time in 20 years, and I honestly thought I'd 'outgrown' it. But this weekend I've been in abject misery...

The sneezing, the coughing, the leaking eyes and nose, the pounding head, the burning sensation all over my body are just about bearable, but the knock-on effect on my diabetes, my balance, my day-to-day challenges - is simply TOO much!

So all those plans to write letters, send wee parcels, visit a friend's debut art exhibition have gone by-the-bye :(

I'm ever-hopeful I will soon figure out all my medication doses, but in the meantime I sit in misery afraid to stand up as it starts my head spinning...


  1. So sorry you're under the weather! I have also been remiss with packages to certain friends, due to being under it myself. Will remedy that soon!

  2. Claire, although I am sorry you are suffering I am also so happy to see you blogging again! I've missed you! xx

  3. Hope you feel better soon my dear!

  4. spring - such a beautiful time of the year spoilt by those horrid allergies and hay fever! Hope youre back to feeling better very soon!


Your comments mean a lot. They show I'm not alone. Thank you!
