"The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is, that one often comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't."
-- Henry Ward Beecher

These allergies are still trying to kill me!
I am so ready to be rid of these allergy symptoms! On the bright side, if you have stock in Kleenex I probably made you some money this week!
People keep telling me to buy local honey. I know about the honey trick though it has mostly been debunked. I can't afford honey these days, especially the good local stuff! I've had allergy testing. Normally, very little bothers me, at least not enough to bother with allergy shots or to predict when I need to bolster allergy prevention.
I'm mildly allergic to grasses and I have a vasomotor rhinitis which can flare up if I get inundated with particulates. We just have a super high pollen count this year thanks to rain followed by sun and lots of wind spreading it!
A note from future Lorelei...
Today you wistfully wished the CAYA Amazon tribe safe travels as they went down to The Goddess Temple of Orange County for a visit.
It really stuck in your craw that there were what seemed like so many exclusive cliques within CAYA. You didn't want to be an Amazon because you did not feel comfortable about their biological female exclusivity and there were other things you couldn't quite put your finger on. You also thought the whole Goddess Temple HP's Queen thing seemed ego driven and ripe for abuse, very different from what you were trying to do with The Empress Dammit.
Still, you wanted to be included and you weren't allowed to join in. But that's how cults work. Your gut was so very right. I know it hurt, but....good on you!
