Itchy, watery  eyes, coughing, sneezing, congestion, itchy nose.

Yes, allergies. They are back. And with great force. 

According to recent reports, this is predicted to be the worst allergy season in years. That could explain why many previous non-allergy sufferers seem to be springing up with allergies. And there were already 35 million of us!

We apparently owe it to the cold, long winter we had already been hating on. Because the winter was so long temperatures soared quicker than usual. This caused all spring flowers, trees and weeds to grow very quickly and at a fast rate.

Then add in all the rain and flooding, even more of a rapid rate of growth. That rain also brought plenty of mold spores for the allergen sufferers to enjoy. So it seems that the normal allergy season was supposed to start this week but according to my itchy eyes and sneezing, it started weeks ago and doesn't show signs of letting up anytime soon. 

I don't know about you but everyday I can't wait to pop that pill that at least makes my allergies bearable. This year it doesn't even seem able to eliminate the symptoms completely. But I guess I'm not the only one.

It also makes me wonder if the reason so many people are feeling the brunt of the allergies is because when you get the allergies pills or sprays you are directed to start taking them 2 weeks before allergy season starts. Since that started early many people weren't prepared for the onset of attacks. Hmmm. Something to think about there. 

New allergy sufferers, welcome to the other side. And old allergy sufferers, pills and nose sprays up! And repeat in a few hours.

-If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome-.
