It seems like every week I find something new to bitch about. I guess you could say it's a gift. Well, this week I'd like to delve into the fun topic of seasonal allergies. I'm certain there are a number of readers out there who can relate to the incredible misery that is this annual affliction.

Thinking back to when I was just a wee tot, and even through my teen years, I don't ever remember being affected by any kind of allergy, be it food, insect or seasonal. But now that I'm older, it seems my face has a vendetta against me.

In addition to having a severe allergy to pollen, I find that whatever crap that you stir up while mowing the lawn also doesn't agree with my mouth and nose holes. No joke, I'll mow the lawn and then wheeze for a solid two hours. And no, not wheezing because Fatty McFatterson just pushed the mower around for a couple hours, but legit because my lungs decided to spend the afternoon hacking grass and pollen bits out of my body.

If you suffer from allergies, whether seasonal or otherwise, please know you are not alone. There are millions of us just like you. Millions of us who secretly hope that January would hurry up and arrive. There's not much pollen in the month of January you know.

In all seriousness, thank you for reading this far- you must not have much going on today. And also, I want to know what you do for your seasonal allergies. The only heavy-duty OTC that works fairly well for me is Allegra, but even then it only slightly masks my symptoms.

At this point, I'll literally try anything. Some new drug whether it's OTC or RX, or even home remedies. Give me some weird recipe that your great-grandmother used to concoct in her lady shed using weird organic ingredients- I don't care. I just need this misery to stop. Even just for five minutes. If all else fails, I'm going to live in a bubble. For real.
