I'm sick. Yesterday, Jason & I headed to my Grandma's for her annual Christmas dinner. Along the way, I started sneezing uncontrollably. Of course, I knew it had to be my arch nemesis, Mountain Cedar.
You see, Mountain Cedar and I have had a long battle. Each year since I have moved here, MC has made my winters miserable. MC causes much sneezing, nose blowing and brings many tears. I have tried many weapons in my 11-year battle including, but not limited to: Kleenex, hot showers, Zyrtec, Claritin, Allegra, Benadryl & Flonase. Currently, I'm fighting MC with Nasonex and Astelin.
Clearly, the effectiveness has worn off this year so I found myself in CVS yesterday begging the pharmacist to tell me what else will work. All I could take was Benadryl, which made me look like a drunk at the party, dozing off on the couch after dinner.
So again I find myself wishing that I lived farther south where MC cannot reach me. I don't think there is much more hope for me except to try immunotherapy (shots). But, if that works, I'm going for it. Anyone have success stories? I would love to put the Puffs down......
