DUDE. All of you people constantly bitching about allergies? I’m sorry for possibly rolling my eyes are your complaints and never completely appreciating your pain. I finally experiences full fledge “Allergies” this weekend complete with 100 sneezes in 2.5 seconds, swollen eyes, and tear-inducing headaches. I had this type of reaction when I was a kid from indoor allergies, but for the last 12 years, I’ve only had problems with itchy/watery eyes in early Spring. I was not so lucky this weekend. Nope. I was miserable. The 100 sneezes in 2.5 seconds comment? NOT AN EXAGGERATION. I actually think my headache from last night was a tension headache resulting from the non-stop sneezing I had been doing for the hours before.
But from evil? We can always find good. And that good is: Benadryl. My mother-in-law blessed me with the gift of Benadryl last night and all sneezing stopped! Eyes no longer watery! Throat no longer scratchy! Of course I was incredibly lethargic but still – no sneezing! I love you, Benadryl. You are my new BFF.
Needless to say, I’m actually a little glad Monday is here.
I can’t believe I just said that.
