The Case of the October Blahs.

I swear I’ve written like 4 blog posts in the last couple of days… I just haven’t really had the courage to post them. I’ve kind of been in a rut that I’m trying very hard to get out of. My allergies are killing me, my food allergies are getting worse and I can’t run without my knees killing me. These things are just holding me back a lot. Another thing that’s getting to me is that I want to be more invested in my health… But it’s hard. I think I may just have to come to terms with things, bite the bullet and cut back and cut down starting Monday. I need to ring my allergy office for more testing, set up physical therapy for my knees, probably see a therapist, find a way to work out without having so much strain on my knees (any suggestions?) and try to cut gluten and dairy out of my diet to see if it makes me feel any better. I just hate being the cause of my own complaints and if I can find something that will change these things; why don’t I go for it?
I know it seems like I’m focussing on my negativities, but the things that are negative are effecting the positive things in my life and I’m sick of it. I think keeping this blog is a step towards a better me. It makes me feel together. Part of a community of support. Not only that, but it also makes me feel stronger and releases my woes through creativity. 
Do any of you have allergies? Food-wise I’m allergic to wheat, tomatoes, apples, shrimp, carrots and potatoes… Air-wise I’m allergic to pretty much everything in Arizona. I could really use some advice if you guys who suffer from food or seasonal allergies have got any… So I open up the floor to your opinions!
