I’m sick.

I’m sick. Again. The last 13 months have been back and forth with colds, allergies, sinus infections, and the stomach flu. Every other month is laced with antibiotics and cold medicine. It is muddling my head. I can’t even hear or read properly today. One track mind hearing and seeing some version of what was said or written!

Really, I don’t know why I haven’t seen it until now. The universe is telling me to GO BACK TO BED. So, yea, low-key night, and limited Internet is definitely in the works.

If I misheard something you said today, please forgive me. It’s this cold-thing. And, don’t worry, I won’t send out anymore emails lest I cause confusion where it isn’t intended.

Girls & Alllergies

Allergies, asthma, and immunicology – a fascinating thing, which strikes me more as I deal with my own allergy autoimmune issues. And, now there is are a series of gender studies that suggest girls are more prone to these issues later in life. NPR reported yesterday on our socialization and how it affects sanitization.

Disease prevention increased with the simple introduction of hand washing. But, now, we are faced with considering that our world is too clean. Cities used to be too dirty, and now they might be too clean (save for vehicle and industrial pollution). It’s an interesting conundrum we face, as a society.
