having made a conscious decision not to blog about anything religion related, for reasons revealed to some of you(ooh sounds ominous!) or anything teaching related unless its password protected (and even i have forgotten my password), i find i am left with very little to talk about, which goes some way to explaining the lack of posting. wanting desperately to get something down though, before the mad rush that is the start of term, incidentally coinciding with the beginning of ramadan, i was desperately thinking of a topic to write about and thought i may as well talk about my allergic reaction on here (as i have complained to everyone i know and they are now sick of it)
i had an allergic reaction to something..and that’s it actually. it’s gone now, which is either a miracle or the antihistamines (i prefer to think it was a miracle!) but it got me thinking about how much i take my health for granted. there are people that have to endure far worse pain on a daily basis and somehow manage to get on with it without complaining and the itchy rash had me bed ridden for a week. when you are ill, you have little time to think about anything other than how to get rid of the pain, which is why other problems seem trivial. i’m going to try and remember how i felt this week next time i’m complaining about something bad which has happened, because in reality i should be grateful for my good health!
i still don’t know what i’m allergic too though.
