September allergies, and a few ways to fight them

September should be renamed Symptomber, amiright!? I’ve got sneezes, throat itchy, watery eyes, and a nose that should try out as an NFL running back. It runs and it can’t stop, won’t stop. All this due to seasonal allergies that seem to take me down every Symptomber.

I made it to the middle of the month, but the end of last week my defenses broke down. Well, actually my defenses ramped up (if I understand how histamines work) but we don’t gotta get all technical now, do we?

Typically I just try to endure. No medicine. No solutions. Just stubborn patience. My admirable tenacity never really seems to help, though, go figure. So yesterday, I said enough is enough of this bull crap! I researched and discovered I must be allergic to ragweed. Ragweed pollen count in middle Tennessee is currently high according to
Plus, are you seeing what I’m seeing? Thursday and Friday might kick all of our rear-ends! This will put my new Honeywell air purifier to the test, and I say…




OK, that’s my stubborn pride rearing it’s competitive head yet again. If I don’t figure out a way to cope with this, I might sneeze myself to death Thursday or Friday. That is possible you know? Just Google it.

So yeah, I have a new true-HEPA air purifier. I bought it last night and I’m using it all day today. Along with cleaning the house some, washing sheets, washing beagles, Zyrtec, and generally staying indoors, I’m hoping the next hours and days are better than the last few hours and days. I’ll post more once I know more. Until then, wish me luck as Sneezageddon gets here Thursday.
