For someone that doesn't have seasonal allergies, I'm sure getting beaten up by seasonal allergies this year. According to the lovely tests that were run a couple of years ago I am only allergic to cockroaches and dust mites.
Instead of having real allergies to pollen, mold, etc that could be treated with shots, I have seasonal rhinitis. This is fancy doctor talk to say, "You're not allergic, you just have allergic reactions to air born junk." I was pretty miserable yesterday, and had to take a bit of a nap in the middle of the day. This morning I was even worse, and I took a benedryl which of course knocked me out. I think I woke up around 8:30am, had a snack and took the medicine. I went to have a lie down around 10:30 and slept until 1:30 in the afternoon. The only reason that I even got up then was because I was starving.
I purchased some Claritin type stuff this afternoon. In high school I took Claritin D when I had symptoms, so hopefully this stuff will work well too. I got the over the counter variety of Claritin, in the store brand. I just couldn't bring myself to pay $1 per pill for the name brand, when the store brand was $7 for 30. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, because I really need some relief that doesn't involve sleep walking through my entire day.
