Well as you know, the flowers are comming out, trees are blossoming, and pollen is everywhere. Do you have allergies? how bad? are they seasonal? is this year bad for you so far? I got hit yesterday with my wonderful seasonal allergies, major sinus drainage, coughing, achyness, and all sorts of fun stuff. I have consistantly had my seasonal allergies completely destroy me, I have had throat inflamation to the point where I cannot speak when I was 10, and that is when it all started, every year right after spring truly begins, I get hay fever and sinus related sicknesses, what about you guys. I would say this year is moderate, but still nowhere near being fun. Do you have allergies? how bad? are they seasonal? is this year bad for you so far?

I don't have many allergies. I am lucky because most of my family has pollen related problems. My sister and brother are very bad asthmatics and I know this can be a frightening time of the year for them. I have another friend who has asthma and needs a nebulizer, but I think her main problem is mould allergy, so warmer weather is probably a good thing for her. I guess there are a lot of remedies on the market to help people, aren't there?

My allergies were so bad that I had to go to an allergist. But my worst allergies are to foods. I did have problems with airborne & animals, but after a years worth of shots I've had much less problems with these things. Not to say that I didn't wake up with a hidious headache on Sunday that didn't abate until I threw up!

I seem to have some sort of an allergy this year! Normally, I don't but I have been coughing away all week and something must be doing it. The house is spotless and no new animals so something nearby must be blloming and causing it but I have no idea what!

I used to have allergies so bad when I was a child that I had to give myself allergy shots. It wasn't fun.. but I have grown out of that. I do still have allergies, this year it hasn't started yet that much... which is surprising. My oldest daughter is going to a allergy clinic at the beginning of May to see if she needs the shot.
