Itchy eyes!

Welcome back!

I'm sitting here scratching at my eyes - they're itchy due to all the pollen in the air. We've had some rain here today and I had hoped that would help reduce the pollen floating around. It did during the day - I wasn't scratching my eyes and my nose wasn't as stuffy...but tonight is slightly different. While the nose is fairly dry, the eyes are making up for it! Yikes! It seems that the night is almost as bad as the day - I wonder if pollen is being sprayed at night? I dunno.

According to and, the alergy alert for my immediate area is HIGH. Great! Itchy eyes galore. does say that Thursday - Saturday should be medium - whew!

Speaking of, I was going to direct you to my home page and let you check the alergy alert for your area - but they declined my request to add their Alergy Alert script to my Web site. Why, you ask? Well, it's quite simple - they claim I don't have a Web the link above and tell me if I have a Web site or not! :)

Of course, it is possible that there was a glitch when they went to verify my Web site's existence, but...I DO have a Web site (and a blog, too!).

I'm trying not to take any OTC medications right now - it's mostly at the "feels like a cold" stage - if the allergice reactions get any worse as the spring wears on, I'll check into something at my local CVS.

Do you have allergies? Are they servere or mild? Seasonal or other? Are you on prescription or over the counter medicine? Share your thoughts with us before you surf away!

  1. well I am not interested in your dollar promotion but I too have allergies, I used to have to give myself shots for them but now I just deal with them to the best of my abilities. (Pollen is also a known enemy of mine)

  2. Cherish,

    Thanks for your comments! Why did you stop taking the shots? How are you dealing with your allergies now - over the counter stuff or have you changed where you live or how you go about your day somehow? Do you find night time to be better or worse than daytime? I've heard not to open your windows at night -- I guess the pollen is still out there floating around. :)

    I'm still trying to avoid taking anything and hope that the worst will be over soon - we're getting some rain that seems to help a bit, too. My eyes were itchy/burning the other night though - had to keep reminding myself not to scratch them lest I do more damage to them! The worst is the runny nose/congestion - yuck.

    Anyone else want to share? :)
