I hope you’re feeling better soon! My ragweed allergy has been bothersome, but at least it isn’t horrible. I just take Benedryl before I go to bed, keep a supply of Puffs handy, and it isn’t a big problem. (Unless I happen to have a cracked rib or something - my sneezes can be heard from 2 floors away!)
Not that I want people to get sick, but I’ll have a better chance to get substitute teaching opportunities if the regular teachers are sick, so I’m a wee bit glad that cold & flu season is getting here.
