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.
