    And complain LOUDLY!!!! My allergies are acting up like there is no tomorrow and it is driving me BATTY!!!! I sneeze, I blow, I wipe, I sneeze again. I have no clue if I am getting a cold or this is too much pollen in the air.

    Quite frankly, I do not have time for this business. GO!!!

    Sorry you're suffering. I guess you use antihistamine?

    Benedryl hasn't been working as good as it usually does and today the wind is blowing about 45 mph. UGH!

    Ugg. I'm so sorry you are having to deal with the pollen. It seems especially nasty this year. Hopefully we will blow through spring quickly and it will all die done.

    The only thing that allows me to breathe is nose spray, and I KNOW that stuff is not good for a body. I am really not sure WHY the pollen is so high this year since there has been ZERO rain.

    Salt water instead- saline spray, also salt water gargle to keep the mucus from growing bacteria.

    Get yourself a neti pot. Nasal irrigation (a lot better than it sounds!) You use a saline solution (that you make) and the pot does a better job of getting high up into the sinus cavities than the spray.
