At the start of this year, my allergies got a lot worse: I was taking a bunch of Claritin, and still I felt tired most days. But then I got a recommendation to start washing out my nose and I started feeling normal again.

Partway through the summer, though, it got worse again. I should probably talk about this with my doctor, but what with my back and leg and back problems, I feel like I've spent enough time in medical institutions recently.

Still: I'm tired of being tired. Which made it worse / weirder that I had a hard time getting to sleep last night; I'm not sure if it was a slight fever from my flu shot, or if my brain just has too much to process right now.

(Maybe it's a sign that my hypomania is coming back! That was certainly an interesting experience, though one that, on balance, I would rather not repeat...)
