Spring and Allergy Season, Two Things I Wish Didn’t Go Together!

Don’t they look pretty? These lovely shapes are the bane of my existence. ImageI, and several thousand others, suffer from seasonal allergies—in spring it’s tree pollen, and it moves on through summer and flowers and grasses, culminating in fall with ragweed and more pollen. You’d think winter would give me a break, but mold is everywhere—even on snow, and I have to contend with that too.

 If you suffer from allergies, you know the symptoms—pain in the roof of your mouth because your sinuses are so infected they’re pushing their way through, blocked sinuses, complete with runny nose and sinus pain, and my perennial favorite, the itchy, watery eyes, that make you look like you haven’t slept in months. Thanks to my own allergy hell, I get to add asthma to my long list of things I could do without—that’s right, I hack and cough my way through April into May.

 I have all kinds of medication that supposedly deals with the symptoms, but I don’t want to deal with them I want a cure! Why can’t the billions of dollars focused on researching why guppies mate and eat their young be diverted into figuring out how to eliminate histamines? It would be nice to be able to go out on a warm spring day and breathe deeply without the side effects. Oh, well. Like everything else, this too will pass. The meds will kick in and start to work, and I’ll be almost as good as new. Until they do, I’ll sit inside and blog, with the windows closed, and pray for June.

 Don’t forget to comment and leave your email to win one of my books.

Finally retired after more than 30 years as a teacher! Now, I get to spend my time gardening, enjoying my grandchildren, and writing. I finally completed the number one item in my bucket list and Crimson Romance published my first novel, Fire Angel, in April 2013. Since then I have published 24 manuscripts to date and don't plan to quit writing for a long time yet.

  1. I like these hops since I get introduced to a lot of authors I have yet to read. Thanks for the hop.
    Your books sound really good.

  2. I feel your pain! I found out I had allergies after I went to the dentist for what I thought were cavities. He told me there was nothing wrong with my mouth, that it was allergies. I was in excruciating pain – my teeth were killing me. When I saw my doctor, he gave me a prescription and no more pain in my mouth. I’ve since learn to deal with the sniffling (which I don’t think will ever go away) but I can eat again!


  3. Yeah, allergies majorly suck! Blah. =( I hope you don’t suffer too badly this season.

    Thank you for this giveaway! =)

    I hope you have a great week!

  4. Thanks to all who visited me on this hop. Donna, Shannon, Kris, Tammy, Brandi and the Book Lady have won prizes. To the others who commented. Please leave your email next time. I can’t reach you without it.

  5. Sorry to hear that your publisher has closed.

    I feel your pain. Pollen is the worst thing about spring. I have to wash down my porch daily.

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway. I love finding new authors to read. Fingers crossed to win.

    Happy Spring!
