Allergies suck

It didn't used to be like this. You have to wonder if this is a byproduct of the environmental crisis. I mean, at least consider it, right?

My husband literally carries a bag of pills around with him. We have had to pull over just so he can gag out the car door. I know, gross, but that's the point. And this year my 14-year-old daughter started. She already has the Dermatographism that I have. Her skin is as sensitive as mine and she can break out in a heartbeat. Now she has what her dad has. She missed so much school this year. And now we have her on weekly shots. I can only hope.

So today I wake up feeling like I did when I used to smoke. Like after a party or going out and smoking about a pack of smokes. Ugh. And my nose and mouth hurt. My skin hurts. So loratadine for me today. I hate to whine. Hey, I do, too! But I feel miserable today.

I'm sitting here sniffing too--though not as badly as you are I'm sure. Spring is great but the pollen? Not so much.

Have you tried a chiropracter? My mom goes to one that specializes in allergies. She was taking a baggy full of pills, taking shots and using inhalers.

She is down to only one pill and has an emergency inhaler if she gets into something that triggers an episode.

Alkaseltzer Gold also works miracles!!!
