Allergic to Work?
Friday, July 12, 2013
I sneeze. A lot. It seems as though two years ago out of the blue I developed terrible allergies. I can't remember the last time I didn't have a stuffy/runny nose. It's an ongoing "joke" that as soon as I come in to work in the morning, co-workers just say "God Bless you for the whole day"....as it is easier than saying bless you 100 times throughout the day. We have also joked that I must, in fact, be allergic to work.
Well, it turns out....I really AM allergic to work! I was off of work for two weeks for surgery, and in that time I only sneezed once. (Thankfully, cuz sneezing after abdominal surgery HURTS!) The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. Around two years ago (notice the timing, eh?) I was transferred from one clinic to another as my main work site. There must be something here that bugs my allergies.
So, I can legitimately say..."I am allergic to work." Ha!
(On a side note, I used to be able to legitimately say I was allergic to exercise. Until I figured out how to clear up my two year case of hives, I would break out TERRIBLY in hives, all over, whenever I'd exercise. Life sure is funny!)
