people who know me in real life know that this is my least favorite time of year. while the rest of the country celebrates the budding flowers, i feel like dying. i should go to an allergist, but they are expensive and extremely time consuming (i can't go sit and get myself tested/get shots often when i have these babies to care for...). So I'm on three different allergy meds and they barely make life livable. I'm always wondering why my body so violently reacts to tiny, pretty little buds:
even the buds on this tree at my daughter's school, in the middle of the city, try to kill me. Ugh. The whole inside and outside of my head itches for two months straight. And our part of the country, apparently, has the highest levels of all types of pollen. awesome.
I'm moving to the tundra.
but before I move...
do any of you have any crazy suggestions? I've tried so much... (don't mention a netti pot.... doesn't go over so well...). Medicines, showers every 10 minutes (almost), staying inside, exercising inside, drinking lots of water, etc, etc....
am i missing something life-changing?
