When I have a severe allergy attack, as I have for the past few weeks, I feel like the mucus builds up in my sinuses, behind my eyes, in my temples, more and more goopy gunk builds up in there, the pressure mounts, and it starts to seep into my brain. The little spaces between the brain cells get jammed with mucus, and it slows the electric flow of thoughts, it creates a fog in my mind, a gray haze of mucus that makes me zone out. Then when I eat spicy soup, and sit in a steam bath for a while, and then get a huge long sneeze, I feel like I can pull the snot all the way in one long strand from deep inside my head, and my thoughts suddenly clear and start to move faster.
