The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So for the past few months, I've had what feels like at least 1 sinus infection per month. It's becoming ri-goddamn-diculous.
I thought that it may be mold in my apartment, as it looked like I had some around the window (there's a lot of moisture builtup around that area due to Japanese building practices) and cleaned it up as best as I could, since the window goes higher than I can reach.
Even so, I still get sick. The only other difference between now and last year is ... my girlfriend. I don't know if it matters much, but she has cats back home (obviously not here in Japan). Now, I've never really had allergies, but my mom was horribly allergic to cats for years, as well as having pretty bad seasonal allergies. She had to get allergy shots, but now she's totally fine and may have a little hayfever, if anything at all. I've never really had much in terms of allergies, but I hear that they can kind of come and go sometimes. So, I'm wondering if my girlfriend had brought pillows or something from home, could any cat hair still be there that would be giving me these as allergic reactions? She noticed that if I stayed at her place, I got sick a few days later. She usually stays at my place on weekends, but I still get kind of sick either way. It doesn't seem to be consistant, really, which is bloody annoying.
Any suggestions for treatment besides a doctor? I'm not opposed to going, but it would be nice if there was something that meant I didn't have to deal with a Japanese doctor again.
Oh! And, maybe this is part of the reason this time, is that Sunday I went to play soccer and frisbee with friends, even though it was a little chilly out at a park. I ended up just running around in a t-shirt and jeans for a lot of it, but maybe the cold still got to me somehow? I'm just kind of at a loss, as for my entire life I only get sick about twice a year - October/November and February/March, and it's usually just a sinus infection or small head cold.
