I hate allergies

It's been a rough day already and we are just past lunch time.  I woke up, did half my workout because Shaun T made some of them way tooooo long.  I went on about my shower and was blow drying my hair when I noticed I couldn't see half my face. If you've read long you know I get these crazy aura migraines.  I had one so bad a couple of years ago I ended up rear ending a car going 70 miles and hour down the interstate.  Everything turned out fine and I have only had a couple of very minor issues since then.  I get these once maybe twice a year, but I just had my 2nd one in a month.  Kind of scary!

This one wasn't that bad.  If I looked at a clock I could see every number except the 9, 10, and 11 to give you an idea of what I mean.  It just wasn't there.  I went back to bed for a while to hide in the dark and hope it went away quickly so I could get myself to work.  An hour later I got up and my vision was back but this really messes up how clear my mind feels.  It kind of feels like I am on the verge of major pain that can come upon me at any moment.  When this happens I just try to slow down.  I try not to concentrate on too much and make sure I have eaten some food. 

I don't know what the cause is but it is extremely frustrating.  When you are a busy mom you hardly have time to be sick or down or not functioning.  People need you!  Thankfully, Dale understands these to a point and takes over my tasks without complaint. 

I haven't been too stressed lately.  The only thing I can think of and I even dreamt of it is that my allergies have gotten the best of me.  I hardly have a night where I can breath clearly.  I have that fun nasal congestion.  I think of the Mucinex character with his finger up my nose every time I say nasal congestion now, anyone else?  It is very descriptive of how it feels.  So, crazy me is starting to really be convinced that there is something in our house that I am allergic to.  If I stay there all day like on the weekends my nose is raw from wiping it all day.  During the week I am that way in the morning, but once I get outside and to work it subsides pretty well. 

So, I'm taking the next steps to get rid of suffering from allergies EVERY.EFFIN.DAY.OF.MY.LIFE!!!  I'm going to get an estimate on a home inspection to test the quality of our air.  Maybe if that doesn't give me any answers I will turn to the shots.  That is going to be such a pain, but I would rather put myself through that than suffer for God knows how long with not being able to breath and dripping snot every where I go. 

Aren't you glad you read today?  If you have any advice or if you have ever done a home air quality test, please offer some advice.  I have never done any of that before so I don't even know what to expect.
