I finally decided that the reason I have been so tired is in part due to seasonal allergies. There is something
Where we live there are "micro climates" and though I work less than 5 miles from home, I am much more stuffy and sneezy at work. At home I love to leave the doors open to let fresh jasmine scented air circulate through the house, but I stopped doing that on the worst days in order to keep the pollens outside.
I read that allergies are worse around the country due to climate change - it has caused Spring to start earlier and the warm seasons to last longer into the fall. This is most true in the northern states which in the past had shorter Spring and Summer seasons. Tree pollens start in Spring and then we move into grass and weed pollens as the season goes on. So it's a tree that is causing my misery.
I read that eating yogurt is supposed to help allergies. I eat some every day - so perhaps it could be worse? I am hoping that the usual time frame of May for whatever it is that bothers me will stay true this year and that allergy season is pretty much over for me.
I look forward to having more energy, better sleep and using fewer tissues.
