    I suppose because for us it was a very wet summer and everything bloomed twice... But this has been the most miserable summer of my life.
    I was wondering what you all do that helps you feel better.

    I go to an allergist, I have been on shots for 14 years, antihistamines, sinus rinse... and yet... blah. Sometimes I just want to walk away from it all and move to the moon, but I would have issues with the moon dust.[​IMG]
    I read about oregano oil and salt in a steamy bowl of water and breathing it in. It helps, and now I want to know what you do that helps.

    I just take over the counter meds. I know what you're saying about this years allergies being "over the top". Its hit down here as well! Seems the whole family, with the exception of my hubby, has them!! [​IMG]
     
  3. I always get really bad sinus infections and this helps allot, it's called a neti pot.

    Oh do I know what you mean haha

    My dad is actually a Chiropractor and he has me on a vitamin called Natural D-Hist, (here's a link to it http://www.naturalhealthyconcepts.c...lecular.html?gclid=COTJtbi_8rICFelFMgodFDsAEw) This stuff helps so much! I take it every day before I go outside and then at lunch. I don't normally take it at Dinner though because once i'm inside all is well.

    Like Mythbusters said the Neti Pot is also a very good natural way to it.

    Thank you for the suggestions. I use the neti pot, but when my sinuses are inflamed it just makes the sinus pressure worse. I hate taking decongestants because they have their own set of problems that they cause me, but when I am twirling and spinning so bad I can not walk straight, I take them.
    I will see if our local heath food store has the natural d-hist.

    We have had a stalled front hanging over us for a couple weeks and I feel like my head is going to pop. Weather head. I used to think that is what people meant when they said they 'were under the weather.'
    But I googled it and it means 'depressed' or 'drunk'. It feels like a bad hangover, so maybe it morphed to mean drunk. And after two weeks I also can understand how it came to mean depressed.
    I am disappointed that I can not move to Missouri and leave my allergies in Fla. I guess they are everywhere. sigh.

    I know how you feel, my 'fall' allergies have not yet kicked in but I know they'll probably be here soon.

    I don't even live in the country, I live in the city and my allergies still get pretty bad but everytime I set foot in the country part of Illinois it never turns out well I end up spending half the day inside feeling sick because it get so bad. As the days go on and i'm outside (always making sure to take that natural D-Hist before I go out) they tend not to be so bad but during the time they're harvesting the corn, forget it i'm done.

    Oh yea, I Forgot about corn. Pollen and harvest time, well, I guess I can forget about middle America for running away from home. I am thinking Iceland might be alright. But I am not sure I can handle ice all the time.

    I don't know if I could handle that cold weather. Maybe England? It gets cold there but it's always raining the air would be nice and clear haha
