it embarrases her how people points out her sniffling and runny nose. she is known as sick girl at her job. several co-workers have bought her boxes of klennex or cough drops.
I know this feeling. I usually work in cubicle and no one can really see me reaching for the kleenex, but whenever I know that I'll be in a more open setting (at a meeting or going out to lunch/dinner with someone), I have to medicate myself....usually with sudafed or a sudafed + allergy med combo. It works, but it leaves me feeling jittery and cold so I don't like taking it too frequently.
I think I'm going to try the elimination diet (thanks to those that mentioned it). I'd already resolved to cut back on dairy, but I'll see if cutting it & gluten out completely helps any.
