I think this is the first time I have EVER said this, but I hope we have a cold winter this year!  I hate being cold and growing up in Florida I would much rather be sweating than shivering.  But, this summer my allergies are way off the charts and I am tired of it!  I’m sure many of you are saying “yep I know what you mean!”

Because we didn’t have at least two consecutive weeks of below 29 degrees last winter (according to meteorologist David Wire) pollens and allergens were not killed off.  Many experts warned us that the allergy season would be bad this year because of a non-freezing winter.  But, coupled with the intense temperatures and desert-like conditions, my eyes have especially fallen victim.

Every morning when I wake up, my eyes are nearly pasted shut!  And I want to scratch out my eyeballs almost daily!  I use Zyrtec, over the counter allergy meds and allergy eye drops several times a day.  But still, goopy eyes!  Sounds appealing I know! Ha.

So, my wish for this winter is that it’s a cold one that properly kills off all those pesky allergens and that all of us have a more quiet allergy season next year.  Until then, I suppose I will just keep scratching!

    I hear ya Patrece, I am absolutely miserable! And some people dont really see the evidence but I hurt all over, head wants to explode, scratchy, itchy, dry throat, dry cough, feel like a lump in my throat that I always gotta swallow, this is by far the worst year I have ever experienced and these are not even seasonal allergies. All that sounds bad just to experience everyday, but when I have an independent allergy attack…well Im sure you understand my agony too…
