allergies!!??

so growing up in southern california i never had allergy problems. but now that i live in cape may, nj where the seasons change and there is a lot more wild flowers and trees it seems like every season change i have had horrible allergies. on sunday we went to a camp ground near our house and i could see the pollen falling from the trees...and i sneezed about 100 times. i really could do with out the runny nose, itchy and watery eyes and for some reason my face is really dry and my lips are super chapped. yep i am a mess. i took 2 benadryl tablets last night and i thought i slept through the night but david said i got up to pee and he asked if i was ok and all i said was i took 2 benadryl. i feel better now but still groggy...maybe i should have only taken 1 benadryl. oh well atleast i didnt wake up 100 times to blow my nose. ok sorry if i grossed anyone out but hey this is real life stuff.

I feel your pain! Welcome to my world... stinks, doesn't it? Sorry you feel yucky. At least none of us have it as bad as Jeannie. I think she has the worst allergies of anyone I know!

Mel, You know what, you're probabaly in for more!! I heard from several doctors that as you "age" your hormone balance changes and you can contract different allergies at any stage in your life! I have too!

I have had allergies since I was like 2 years old. Now my kids have them. Except I can't take any of the OTC allergy meds because they pretty much knock me out. A few times I got sent home from school because my mom gave me one of those pills and I was totally incoherent.
