    I have to say it's kicking my butt. Hopefully it won't last long though.:crying:

    Nothing here at all yet. I'm surprised, it usually starts by late March. But we've had tons of rain the past few weeks. I'm just waiting for the day it will suddenly turn warm and sunny and all the plants will explode in my face.

    I'm in Florida, and at 32 y/o I've never been affected in this or any other region of the country.

    This year, I want to tear my eyes out of my skull.

    I thought it was particularly bad this year but didn't know it was a record.

    We had some rain earlier this week and that washed things down some so it's not quite as bad now.

    I'm dying here. The other weekend I was on Zyrtec, benadryl, inhaler, steroids, and no sleep since I could barely breathe. It's been better this week. Just zyrtec and benadryl.

    Snooting and blowing here. All the cars in my area have a green or yellow coating on them. It doesn't help to wash.

    I washed and waxed my black car and the next morning it has a solid coat of pollen.

    My eyes are so bloodshot that I will probably be taken to the DUI center to be tested if I ever get pulled over. I'm 23 and every spring and summer my eyes are bloodshot. Nothing else is wrong with me, and it doesn't bother me at all. It won't help that I don't have the best balance.

    Try and imagine a 20 year old kid at a new duty station talking to higher ranking people for ther first time. Lets just say that I had to take the "10%" drug test every single month. Of course I passed every time and it became a funny joke.:rofl:

    Didn't even notice it. Pollen = just dust to me. At least it smells good.

    You all have my sympathy.

    Its really bad around here. Doesn't really affect me but pisses me off when I go out and my truck is yellow instead of white.

    I don't have a problem with it. Or poison ivy. Or dogs.

    However, I have plenty of friends and family members that have problems with all three.

    Lots and lots of pine pollen in my area. I had to double my usual dose of antihistime.

    That's what happens when there's a lack of bees. I never see bees anymore. I'm glad I moved back to the Northeast because my allergies were horrible in New Mexico. The windy season doesn't help either.

    Doc gave me Nasonex sample inhalers it does clear my sinuses but my nose still runs. I can live with it.

    Eyes just burn. Last week my poor beagle couldn't stop sneezing.
