Spring Fever

...of the Hay kind, I'm afraid. The cold I had last week must have ended eventually, but I didn't notice because it morphed into hay fever, some of the worst I've ever had. I have to be very careful with anti-allergy medications because of my high blood pressure. I've found some that has an antihistamine without the decongestant (the latter being what's contraindicated for HBP), and it might help a little, but for now I'm suffering from itchy, watery eyes and a raw throat from the coughing and congestion. Even here in the office, I'm doing as much communication my e-mail as in person because I can barely talk. If this lasts through BayCon, I won't be good company at all.
