Maybe it had something to do with all the random bouts of snow we've been getting. You know, killing flowers, catching all the pollen or something.
See? Living in Canada has its benefits!
And I was looking forward to getting through May with no problems at all. But it always starts slowly.
First your eyes feel a bit itchy, along with the roof of your mouth. Maybe you ate something you were allergic to. Either way something doesn't feel right.
And then you sneeze and your face is just covered in a spray of liquid. And you'd wipe your face off except you're still sneezing and you're just making a huge mess all over the place.
Make it stop!
So right now I'm having the worst pollen allergies I've had in a long time. As in, if I don't have tissue paper with me when it hits, my nose is going to look like a disgusting waterfall in a minute. Really not fun when you're trying to brush your teeth or when you're eating lunch with your girlfriend.
Yes... This will make the food more appetizing...
I'm really considering changing anti-histamine brands. Normally I use Reactine, it has served me well over the years and acted quickly.
Right now, I'm questioning if it even works on some days. Sometimes I'll take 1 and hours later I'm still dribbling like some 12 year old who can't wipe his nose properly. And when it does work, it's certainly much later than the advertised 20 minutes.
At least it's cheaper from the other stuff I've seen. Guess you get what you pay for.
Maybe I'll do what my Aunt does and take the anti-histamine before she sleeps. Maybe I need to switch brands.
Maybe I need to stay in the basement and never leave the house again until all the plants are dead.
