Thanks to all of you who responded to my first blog at the end of November. Thought I would drop you all a line to let you know how things are going. Last week was terribly cold where I live and we had our first snowfall of the winter. As you will remember I suffer with cold uitcaria and so have been popping antihistamines like they are going out of fashion. I work in a school and even when leaving my office for the main school building I look like I am on an expedition to the North Pole - am not looking forward to the cold weather that all are forecasting in the next few weeks - I wish we could hibernate!
Have now come out with a cold and feel pretty lousy. My nose drips like a tap and is red and chapped (very attractive). Have managed to keep in work though, although nearly fell asleep when my class were doing a test at the end of last week!
Am also being troubled with really dry skin in my scalp and around my hair line - have booked to see Dr about this - so see what he recommends.
I hope that I can get through the week without needing to take time off work - it's always so hectic before christmas - I could do with the world stopping for a few hours so that I can catch up with myself.
What would people recommend with the cold - rest up or battle through?
Hope you are all starting to feel increasingly festive,
