    Woo-hoo, my persistent clicking paid off!

    The little man and I have both been hit hard by the extreme allergies this season. According to weather.com "the pollen forecast for your area is high". No shite.

    Oh, my b-day is June 25th...the day after the Magnetic Fields show, which I actually have tickets to. Yay!

    I have had X-TREEM allergies every single year of my life, and when I say X-TREEM, I am not exaggerating.

    However: this year I actually went to an allergist. I opted for a combination of Zyrtec (which works great, but prepare for three weeks of crushing depression), FloNase (a steroid -- but my muscles seem to be the same size. Damn.) and Zaditor for my eyes. I had literally not one single allergy outbreak all spring. It was absolutely great -- well, apart from the crushing depression, but its more depressing wandering around with bright red watery eyes and sneezing crazily.

    The best thing: I went off all the meds last week, and I haven't had an allergy outbreak since! And normally this is the worst time of the year for me. Weird.

    Hmmm, sounds like Jon's on to something (and *on* something). Just a minute ago I was on the phone with my doc's office. Been trying to navigate the byzantine corridors of prior authorization for the Zyrtec (ooh, yay, crushing depression here we come!) but I should also get hooked up with summadat Zaditor. Don't have the FloNase, but I've got Nasonex. Is it just me, or does this all seem a little ludicrous? I think the lot of us should head to San Francisco, where I hear the pollen count is much lower. Sigh.

    If we are doing birthdays then mine is May 16th....

    HOORAY!

    Also, the allergies have hit me hard. I usually don't start until mid-May, and then I am blessed with the watery, drippy spigots until July. However this year the pollen fairy visted in mid-April. Thank you pollen fairy. I hope your wings rot, and you die alone...painfully alone. I find that Zyrtec™ is the only medicine that seems to knock out my symptoms completely. I never knew about the depression thing though. Damn, that would explain a lot. I have Flonase, too, but haven't used it yet. I expect that my nose will be able to lift small farm animals by the time I am done with it.

    Welcome to Allegy Chat!
    I know not of this Zyrtec™. I was just saying to Lorika yesterday that when the allergies strike hard, Claritin doesn't do jack diddly. I've had the nasal steroid spray before, which is a confusing concept. Are there nose muscle magazines? NoseFlex?

    [Is I is or Is I ain't, gonna blog? Somewhere inbetween.]

    Claritin is a freaking JOKE, and don't even talk to me about the other over the counter meds -- Benadryl = sleeping pills, and Sudafed = crack.

    Actually, Sudafed is kinda fun for that reason -- I always feel like I'm on coke and I wanna talk and work and talk some more and listen to music and wow and run around and holy crap...and then I crash. HARD.

    Yeah, man, call your authorized medical service provider and get yourself some o' that Zyrtec™. Hey -- depression is good for art, anyway, right?
