The cedar pollen is about to get the best of me. I don’t know why I had expected it earlier and was optimistic that either we weren’t going to have it this year or I was no longer allergic but it’s here now with a vengeance and I cannot stop sneezing. Even when Vince goes outside and comes backing . . I start sneezing. I’ve used Flonase, Zyrtec, Allegra. Texas Cedar Fever drops. I usually use Zyrtec but after a couple of weeks of it not helping, I switched to Allegra, and it isn’t helping either. There seems to be no relief this year.
Vince and I were talking this morning . . how do you pick a location to live and know there’s not going to be some seasonal allergy that sends you over the edge? In Louisiana and Kentucky, I had seasonal allergies in the Fall but by then, I was ready to stay inside more. Here, I’m so wanting to be outside in the spring and this cedar pollen seems never ending this year.
I’ve reminded Vince several times that I didn’t seem to have allergies in Missouri but that also could be because we lived in town and it may have been different if we had lived out in the country. We know two people who lived near where we live who sold their places and moved to town because of cedar pollen allergies and they’re fine in town. I suppose I’ll take a couple of months of allergies before I could live in town.
For now, I’ll just keep sneezing my head off, rubbing my itchy eyes and blowing my nose non-stop!
