O hai.

So I sneeze. A lot. Like, all the time. Multiple times a day. Often, I sneeze several times in a row. This happens when I don't have a cold, and I doubt it is allergies, as I don't have any of the other symptoms and this has been happening for pretty much as far back as I can remember, all year round, indoors, outdoors, here in Texas, when I've traveled to other places, you name it. Unless I'm allergic to myself, I don't know what I could be allergic to that is so... persistent. I only recently noticed how much I sneeze, when my boyfriend mentioned it to me.

I was talking to a girl at work last night about it (After I sneezed like, four times in a row and she asked if I was coming down with something. YEAH, GUESS HOW OFTEN I HEAR THAT QUESTION.) and she mentioned something she'd heard about called Achoo Syndrome. Yeah, no kidding, that's what it's called. I looked it up, and apparently it's a genetic syndrome where you involuntarily sneeze when you see a bright light. I don't think that's it, though. I don't need to have a bright light to sneeze my ass off.

Any idea if persistent sneezing is some sort of syndrome or... medical thing? I plan to ask my doctor next time I see her, out of curiosity more than anything, since sneezing a lot certainly isn't going to kill me... or is it?

So, Dr. Eljay, am I going to die?
