Feeling Sorry for Myself.. Waaaaaa

I'm trying to focus enough to write today, cause I am totally incapacitated by allergies!
What the heck is doing this to me I don't know. I'm going to start sounding like one of those customers that gives the litany of disgusting symptoms I don't want to hear about -- post nasal drip that causes a sore throat and that tingly, itchy sensation in your nose and on the roof of your mouth. My usually reliable Allegra isn't working. Zyrtec isn't working. I take Benadryl at night and in the morning I feel like I had 12 martinis. I'm now going to move into the hard-core cold medications and keep piling on till something works.

Cripes, I'm actually woozy. Okay all you allergy customers, I'll join you (just for today) on the WAHHHH--mbulance........

My ENT gave me a new med called "Xyzal" Great stuff. Makes me pretty drowsy, so I take it at night.

Have you tried the Finger-brand nasal suppositories?

Hope you feel better soon. I have a stash of sudafed and loratidine in my desk for these times.

Hey Dr. Grumpy, I thought those finger brand nasal suppositories were taken off the market due to risk of nose bleed, lol. Your FDA hard at work!

Have you tried allergy shots? I did as a kid, and they wore off after 25 years. I'm now getting shots again and they work great! I'm off my asthma meds and off the allergy meds. I have only taken allergy meds once this year.
