In which the self-discovery continues.
This belly-button gazing session was brought about by my weekly red-eyes and runny nose situation that would occur about halfway through the day at one of the clinics I am rotating through. After about the third week, I started bringing Visine for my itchy eyes and just racked it up to the dry air in the hospital.
This past week was the worst on me! By 10am I was a drippy, fuzzy-eyed mess. As I was sitting dabbing my eyes while trying to salvage the last of my brave mascara clumping to my lashes, I looked over and saw one of the clinicians coats that hang in the workroom. I think the coat was black, but it was hard to tell through the layer of CAT HAIR felted onto the surface.
Am I even that allergic to cats? I had trouble when I was kid, but I've managed a few hours at a time at friends' houses that have cats. As soon as I left clinic, the urge to rip my eyeballs out of my skull and roll them around in the gravel dissipated. So, wow, I guess I'm really allergic to cats!
This got me thinking about other things I don't know about myself or things that just came to light recently...Like I never knew I'd be really into Korean melodramas or rose tea. I know being allergic to cats is pretty much the most boring thing ever, but are there things that you are figuring out or discovering about yourself lately?
