Sneezing Into Spring

Spring_mountain_meadowSpring! A season of rebirth, of new beginnings, of enjoying the outdoors and sunshine. So delightful for almost everyone!

And so miserable for those of us who suffer allergies!

As glad as I am to say goodbye to Winter, the onset of seasonal allergies has a way of making me wish for another hard freeze. Given the number of allergens to which I’m prone, I should of rights be a desert-dweller, but living in the middle of lush grasses and trees of every sort and flowery meadows, well, I just have to suck it up … and in fact, I do.

Because Winter held on for so long this year, I totally forgot I could alleviate some of my suffering with early palliative doses of local bee pollen. That has helped me in the past! But this year, it never even crossed my mind until I was in the throes of misery a couple days back. Argghh! Winter lulled me into oblivion and then Spring pounced.

I’m certain there must be plenty of folks who feel my pain and can identify with the struggle I’ve described below. So let’s commiserate together … and I’ll grab the box of tissues! Ah-choo!
