Rain and allergy season

I love spring and summer but the allergy season is really hard on me this year. I havent had  a bad allergy problem in about 6 or 7 years. In spring when the pine trees send out pollen if I am out side too long I get all the typical allergy symptoms. Then if I dont head it off quick enough I end with bronchitis and sometimes pneumonia. Well it got me this year. When I left to go visit my aunt I was congested and miserable but went any way. I didnt have anything contagious just symptoms. I ended up having to get a prescription for antibiotics and cough syrup. Both of which help a lot but after I got home I guess I was tired and run down and have been just miserable today. Needless to say I havent done anything here on the place. Just went into town and took care of some business and legal matters. It has been really cool here today so I didnt need to open the green house. The sun should be out on Wednesday. If we dont get too much rain tomorrow may be I will feel a little better and get some of my herbs transplanted. I also have the Rugosa roses and some herbs that my friend gave me that still need to be planted somewhere. The ground should be nice and soft to dig in after the rain we have had. But for now I think I will just take it easy and try to get to feeling better. Till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

I am having the Same problem! My dr gave me a refill rx on an inhaler I hadn't been using until this month. now I'm coughing, sneezing, itchy eyed, and sometimes skin--but the worst thing is I'm out of breath so much! Its difficult to get the spring garden chores done here in new place with that goin' on.

So just know how you feel. My dr wants me to have allergy tests/ shots. I kind of poo-poo'd it, but well... gosh. I dunno I would like to be able to breathe! Might have to consider it. Hope you feel better. Its a beautiful time of year if you can breathe. :)

Hey Mary, hope you are breathing better. I can relate to the being out of breath. I walked to the greenhouse in the lower part of the yard and was winded when I got back to the house. I have slept off and on all day. THe chicken noodle soup for supper sure hit the spot tho. If ya have a hard time breathing when ya lay down try drinking a cup of chicken soup as hot as you can stand jus before bed. This works for me so I can get a few hours of restful sleep. Get better soon, I enjoy reading your blog. Now if I only had half your energy. lol
