Mother Nature Must Be Angry with Me!

I love Mother Earth but she has been so mean to me for 3 weeks now! She keeps the pollen coming! Flowers and trees are pretty but doesn't she ever think about the poor souls who can't handle the allergens in the air? And then she adds the wind! Thanks MOM!

I thought we made trade-you stop polluting me with grass pollen and I stop polluting with you plastics and pesticides. What happen? She is not keeping up her end of the bargain!

I haven't been "normal" for 3 weeks and in the last week I have been suffering the worst. I am severely allergic to grass pollens and they grow, literally, like weeds where I live. I have taken everything OTC and they have stopped working. I have to lock myself up in the house and have missed my son's baseball games.

Stuffy nose, watery eyes, itchy throat and too much sneezing. I have always lived with pollen allergies but I haven't had severe symptoms like these for 7 years. I have on my team Benedryl, Sudafed, Visine AC, Saline Nasal Spray, Claritin, 4 Way Nasal Spray, Afrin, 4 boxes of Kleenex (Sorry, I won't use rags or hankies for this job. There is just too much snot.), and a shower every night.

I am looking to my organic and natural friends in the blogosphere to help me. What works? Is there anything natural that I can try to help alleviate my allergy symptoms? I tried to search but I didn't find much. I heard accupuncture helps. I have never done it but I am willing to try.

So thanks mom. But this only hurts you because I can't hang my clothes out to dry. Ha Ha!
