This is getting very boring. An URTI first, now allergies/hay fever.
I woke up at 3am this morning feeling generally a bit off and with my left eye doing the Mr Magoo act again. Yesterday I'd been sneezing alot and had very itchy eyes..so today..another sick day and another visit to the doctor.
This time it was to a younger doctor who had to be educated into what medication I could or could not take; her first suggestion coming up with a "Forbidden in Sport" warning. Finally she found an antihistamine I could take and then she wanted me to try Ventolin for the wheezy cough I still have...I couldn't be bothered in going through the whole "I can't take this" bit again but I'm sure others will correct me if I'm wrong as I'm sure I'd have to have a specialist's ok for Ventolin usage plus a lab test showing that I have asthma.
That over, I wandered off to the chemist only to be asked if I had a Senior's card. Dammit. From the highs of worrying about being tested for performance enhancing drugs to the lows of being one of the invisible grey haired wrinklies!!!
I had two options give in to the sudden homicidal urge that threatened to surface or exercise admirable self control and ignore the insult. I chose the latter...smiled weakly, paid up and left.....
I'm thinking of auditioning for "Grumpy Old Women"
Racing the Masters State Track champs this weekend? I don't think so....
