I’m gearing up for another trip down to New Orleans, to take care of the stuff I didn’t finish last time. I’d hoped to drive down today, but I’ve got a sore throat. It’s pretty mild — just a scratchy, tickly feeling — but it won’t go away. It’s been about 48 hours now. I slept most of the day yesterday, and drank lots of fluids. I’ve been gargling with salt water every chance I get. It hasn’t gotten worse, but it hasn’t gotten better either.

Other than the scratchy throat, I don’t have any other symptoms, or so I thought until I tried to run some errands today. I felt very disoriented, almost dizzy, in the grocery store. Low blood sugar, or slightly feverish?

I hesitate to go down to the Big Sleazy if I’m not feeling 100%. From my last trip I know how quickly I became exhausted, working in the heat with no AC. I guess I’m going to continue to rest up and wait until I feel better.

I feel frustrated and helpless, but I’ve gotten used to feeling that way over the past month.

    The allergies here in southern IN are HORRENDOUS this fall. I’ve had similar symptons for about a month now. Keep up those fluids, and hang on. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m excited for a frost to make this crap get out of the air.
