The first warm weekend of the year I noticed that my breathing improved dramatically -- as in, I went from feeling like I couldn't take a deep enough breath and felt like my sinuses were packed with spooge, to feeling like I was twenty pounds lighter and could breath in FOREVER. The weather quickly turned cooler, and I began to have issues again.
Yesterday we finally began to warm up after a few weeks of unseasonably cool weather, and this morning... you guessed it.
Apparently I'm allergic to something that either dies when the temps rise to around 75 degrees, or the "off-shore flow" that tends to warm things up around the bay area isn't picking up the same crap coming over the central valley and East Bay hills as it does coming over the bay by way of the peninsula. My gut is leaning toward the former.
Of course, the real question is: What the hell IS it? Mold? Some plant that shuts down the pollen factory when it's dry and warm?
Ah well -- I'm going to enjoy having echo chambers instead of over-stuffed trunks for sinuses.
* Which refers to my third post in a month (so far) -- maybe I'm getting back into the swing of posting? Who knows. I do wonder how cool it would be if the new iPhone came had an LJ client that automatically pegged your exact location as a latitude/longitude link to Google maps when you posted from random locations, and allowed you to insert a photo taken automatically upon submission. How cool would THAT be?
Gah... I'm SUCH a geek.
