OMG! Hell yeah...Last week and this weekend I thought I was going to die! Plus I am pregnant and can't take anything! I have been living off that saline nose spray/wash.

Isn't it the freakin' weekend yet???

I've been good, but our dog went nuts scratching herself about 3 weeks ago. We finally broke down and had her tested. She has allergies to trees and grass "stuff". I've got to give her shots now.

how about it all summer was great and i said to someone how well i was and the next day bam. years back i heard about how they spray stuff in the air to pacify people i wonder if there could be something to that since we all had the same thing happen at the same time.

i want to drink, but only to kill a certain few brain cells and i don't care how many i have to take out to get to them.

Ok, I don't feel so bad if other people are going through the same thing. I could not figure it out!!! Allergies are the suck, but sometimes the meds are worse.

OMG...oh, yeah. Mine have gotten so bad in the last week or so that I was getting awful sore throats and thought I was coming down with something...but, nope...just awful allergies. Allegra and Veramist are my friends. Actually, Veramist (it's a nose spray) is quite good and you only need to use it once a day. Helps a LOT with the nasal congestion/itchy watery eyes.

Yeah, they came out of nowhere for me too. A couple other people at the office got hit as well. Thank goodness that Zytec is over the counter now.

Every 4 hours around the clock I'm popping Benadryl. I'm allergic to everything outside (corn,ragweed,trees,etc) for about a month in the spring and fall.
Just another reason I miss southern california; I wasn't allergic to anything out there b/c nothing grew unless it was watered/irragated.
