My allergies are practically doing me in. For the last few weeks, I have been increasingly sneezing, wheezing, coughing, and teary eyed and nothing seems to help. I had gone to an allergy doctor last year and she prescribed Allegra, which is now available over the counter. But I swear the over the count stuff is NOT the same, despite what the advertising lingo says. The new stuff does nothing; absolutely nothing. This morning, I tried the Flonase that I found in my cupboard. It said use before bed, but I was desperate.
I noticed this morning that my car had a film of pollen on the roof when I went out. At first I thought it was frost and then remembered it was not cold and it is not winter. It was pollen! I love the spring flowers and the increased gardening that I am doing. But I hate these allergies, at least until I can find something that will work. I called my doctor yesterday and have yet to receive a call back. Most frustrating. So in the meantime me and my red-rimmed eyes and drippy nose wait for relief. I hope an answer comes soon.
