Dear Friends with Allergies,
In all the years before Connecticut, I only had a vague idea of what this whole ‘allergy’ thing was all about. Slightly stuffy nose? yeah. Occasional sneezes? sure.
I had no idea.
First the eyes. For those of you in industry, it can be as bad as welders flash. Unbearably dry itching death. Like someone cleaned your contact lenses with a fine sand before you had a chance to use them. Who knew pollen could be so irritating? not this guy. that is certain.
The description ‘runny nose’ doesn’t do this ailment justice. When the armies of pollen come out to fight you can’t use tissues fast enough to stop the floodwaters.
The Sneezes are persistent. Not constant for me, but still notably annoying.
Ears. I don’t think this is common: I get a perpetual sound of wind in my right ear. It’s very subtle… unless I’m trying to sleep. Then there’s a freight train on my pillow.
Hopefully this rain will crush the allergen front and soon we’ll be living in healthy allergy free bliss once again.
