The Disadvantage of Spring

I blogged about the beautiful flowers of spring on Monday and Tuesday.  It is the most beautiful time of year in Alabama, but there is one major disadvantage.  POLLEN!  Pollen is the worst culprit and along with spring weather in which Mother Nature acts as if she has multiple personality disorder, you have a bitch of a season for you sinuses.  The weather has been going from the 30s to the 80s back and forth.

I woke up yesterday morning not understanding why I was in such a pissy mood, then the headache and sinus pressure began, and I fully understood the reason.  My nose began to burn, my head felt like it would explode, and I found my temper to be getting shorter and shorter.  I never feel that a sinus headache is a reason to miss work, so off I go to teach again today.  I doubt my mood will get any better today than yesterday.  I will do my best though to keep my temper in check and not take it out too much on the students.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
