I have the world's worst allergies, and I have ever since I was a little girl. I've tried pretty much everything - from Netipots to nasal spray, Allegra to Zyrtec, aloe tissues to tissues with lotion. It's been a struggle, but I've learned my own little routine that helps me cope.
I found these CollegeHumor comics that had me dying laughing earlier today because of just HOW TRUE they are to us seasonal allergy sufferers. If these sounds like you, shout me out!
Ah, dust - taking the joy out of thrift store shopping, old book reading, and helping your grandmother clean out the attic since the beginning of man.
Got a cat? Guess that means you'll have a friend with a six-hour flu on your hands now too. Cats are our kryptonite, but WE CAN'T. STAY. AWAY.
What do you mean you're not into mouth breathers?
WHY IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE ALLERGY MEDICINE THE ONE THAT TURNS YOU INTO A 16-HOUR ZOMBIE? IT'S NOT FAIR.
And then, of course, the only time we don't have seasonal allergies is during winter flu season. Our sinuses probably hate us.
NO! THE SUN IS SHINING! FLOWERS ARE BLOOMING! POLLEN IS EVERYWHERE! [Insert heavy wheezing here.]

Do any of you have nasty seasonal allergies? What are you allergic to the most?

All I'm saying is when people don't warn me that they have a cat before I come over their house, it's like I'm stepping into a 48-hour state of pneumonia.

Dust, pollen, weather are some which makes me sick. Because of Benadryl effect i used to sleep in class . I found a remedy to put this under control. Instead of taking those drugs , you can buy a steam inhaler, put a few drops of equalyptus oil and inhale the steam deep into your nose. This would give instant relief from all types of allergies. @danidee
dont forget allergies to food and other people
yup... asthma attack every time the season decides to change! Pollen,dust,heat,rain,cats to name a few...
Waaaa! I can super relate to this card. I really dont have allergies but last week i got a flu and went to the clinic for a check up coz i need to be healed asap for i will be out for a vacation. Then the doctor told me that i have allergies! I was like o_0 why now? And where the heck did i ever got this?! Haha. It was really a worse experience. The gif you posted is exactly what i experienced. I even folded a tissue and hung it on my nosetrils. Lol. I just bought antihistamine and i am relieved but in still careful on the culprits. 馃槣
I developed an allergy to cats in primary school only after my own cat got run over. Weird, sad but true. However, almost as weirdly I undeveloped hay fever as I got older. I am also unofficially but definitely allergic to mornings. ;-)
