Dave!As summer comes to a close I've been having a tough time of it. Just like every other change of seasons, my allergies go into overdrive and my days are spent with a runny nose, watery eyes, mucus drainage, and miserable fits of coughing. There are things I can do to alleviate the insanity, but there's nothing that can really stop it. But, oh well, I'll get over it eventually, right?



Every year it's taking longer and longer for me to recover. Ten years ago, it took days for me to adjust to the seasons. Now it takes weeks.

This getting old thing really sucks.

    Dave – this would be it’s third mention in the comments of your blog – have you given the neti pot a go yet?

    I get the same hay fever you do, pop the pills and shoot the Beconaise into my brain (or so it feels when you get it right) – sometimes that works and sometimes a quick go of the neti pot gives 80% relief for several hours without the all over side affects of the pills. It’s at least another weapon in the arsenal…

  2. I also get seasonal allergies, often light allergies in the spring and heavier in the fall. I’ve noticed it gets worse when they start harvesting what little corn grows around here. It wasn’t so bad when I lived in Iowa, but I assume I was just used to it.

    In the past, eating local honey everyday helped me adjust.

    I feel like I have the worst dry/itchy eyes this time of year. All I do is walk around squeezing my eyes shut trying to get them to not be a-holes.

    I hope your allergies let up soon.

    The age thing is frustrating for me when it comes to allergies. I seem to suffer the most during these season changes, especially when the temps change drastically (as they do here in Utah right after Labor Day).
