Man, this time of year is horrible for me. Every morning I wake up and my eyes are red and tearing. They itch like crazy, too, and rubbing them only makes it worse. I'm sneezing all the time and my nose hurts from rubbing it with tissues all the time. The real kicker is, the only OTC drugs that do me any good make me super-drowsy. It's a no-win situation. I can't wait for fall. If you've got really bad allergies, are you taking prescription meds, or OTC? By the way, if there are any people without allergies that would like to chime in, please feel free to do so. I wouldn't want to make anyone feel left out or excluded.
