It's that time of year.

You know what I mean, flowers are blooming and birds are singing. And I keep sneezing so violently that I won't be surprised to one of my lungs or an eyeball pop out of my body. Usually, I do not seem to be affected by pollen allergies, but this year for some reason it is really getting to me. Of course the fact that you can write your name in the pollen covering my back patio might have something to do with it. I took Trent to a doctor and asked about allergy medication for him. The doctor said that really Zertec is the best stuff and it has just been made for over the counter sales. So I got some for him and me. The bad news about that is that it seems to make me extremely drowsy. And it really didn't seem to make that much difference. So I can't decide which is worse the illness or the cure. Yikes I hope it gets better soon.

Zyrtec D (prescription form) has been the only thing that works for me. OTC Claritin does absolutely nothing. I hope that they haven't ruined Zyrtec the same way.

Let me know if you find something that works! I am going crazy too! Benadryl seems to work pretty good, but makes me drowsy and I swear allergies and the medicine makes me gain 10 pounds! ugh
