This has not been a very healthy season for us. First it was my pink eye, then it was asthma and acid reflux, then eczema, and now Hubbs has contracted my bad luck and developed his own eye allergies.
Is there excess pollenation happening this spring?! Was there an abundance of leftover snow mould from the spring thaw?! Why are our bodies going haywire?!?
Though I've now recovered, in most part, from my ailments, I am still dealing with weird eye symptoms that are particularly bad during the evenings. Dry eye, perhaps. Or allergies. Or eye fatigue. I'm not sure which of these it is anymore. But for Hubbs, his suffering has (unfortunately) only begun. The poor guy is sneezing, running at the schnoz, and his eyes are itchy and red and teary. I wish he could be spared the ugliness of spring allergies. I wish both of us had good, symptom-free eyes and healthy bodies.
If only I had decided to go into Med instead of education! :( For someone as seemingly frail as I am, I should really surround myself with doctors who can diagnose me and prescribe me something on a near - weekly basis.
I hope Toronto doesn't trigger something worse for Hubbs and I! Yikers.
