Stinging

Peoria, Arizona
October 14, 2017 9:53am CST
I love autumn, it is my favorite season, it is beautiful, amazing holidays, and it starts to get cooler here. But the terrible thing about it, is my freaking allergies, dude! At the moment my nose is stinging like crazy, my forehead is throbbing, my eyes are leaking, and I don't even know what my throat is doing, it just feels icky. And everyone is going to suggest, "Oh get medicine!" I have said it once, I have said it a million times, I don't have medicine, I can't afford the medicine I need and generic or cheap stuff doesn't work for me! Trust me, I have lived with my body for 22 years now, I think I know what works and what doesn't. Until then, I am thinking water and just shoving a box of tissues in my face. It will pass in a bit. I might turn off my cooler so it doesn't bring in any outside air and just turn a fan on.

that's a good thing then, you know what you should do, you're going to have a lot of savings instead of giving it to medicines and doctors.

I have more allergies in Spring than in fall. I discovered that my nose does not like paper tissues (they have a sort of dust) And I do better when alone with common toilet paper (no aroma or funny things like that).

I get them year round. I had the same problem with the tissues. The lotion ones help since they are are just creamy and no dust.

Sorry to hear about your allergies. In the last years it seems like I developed them as well, but they aren't too strong, nose and eyes start running but after some time they stop, so nothing a tissue can't solve. I don't like to depend on meds anyway.

My allergies used to be really bad as a kid. They calmed down but still get super agitated at times.

It is still so warm here, but I would like to keep the electricity down and my allergies down as best as I can.
