Last night I had an allergy induced asthma attack in the middle of my spyn class. I started coughing thirty minutes into class after the instructor opened the windows. At first I thought it was just a little cough but it got worse and I couldn't stop. So finally, I left the room and walked around the lobby. Nevertheless, I continued coughing more and it still wouldn't stop. My friend finished her workout early and she sat with me for a bit. Apparently I lost all color in my face (that's what happens WHEN YOU CAN'T BREATHE) for a while. Eventually, the coughing stopped and I felt a bit better. Claritin helped get my itchy feeling in check too.
Allergies are seriously unattractive They cause hives, itchy, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, gasping, and red eyes. NICE. And it seems like the ultimate dorky thing to have. Nope! Can't exercise because I'll probably start wheezing! Oh that redness on my legs? I accidentally sat bare legged on the grass. And yes, I am allergic to grass. Obviously, there are many more serious ailments and I should be lucky that my only health concerns are allergies and crazy. But still, I can bitch about it, especially when it involves the inability of my lungs to inhale and exhale air in an efficient manner.
The rest of the evening involved watching So You Think You Can Dance. Brett, the young man with Down's Syndrome, made me teary when he made that speech and the audience cheered for him. I love shit like that, but don't tell. I want to keep my sarcastic image intact. And besides watching television, I figured since my workout was a waste, I would eat a large quantity of chocolate covered pretzels. So. Good. And such a weakness of mine. At least I didn't overindulge by dipping them in peanut butter. At that point, you would have to cut me out of my house because I wouldn't be able to fit through any doors!
This afternoon I get to do some real sophisticate legal type stuff. Let's hope I don't swear or ask an inane question or have a sudden random outburst. It's been known to happen...
