Week 21: Allergies: How to endure them without suffering overmuch?
Wow, what a topic. Allergies I know all about, but how not to suffer over much, If you know how please share. I am highly allergic to just about everything and living in the mid-south, the pollen capitol of the world, I do suffer. Plus I love animals and cannot for the life of me imagine being without my dog and cats, I truly pay for it.
My dog and a couple of the cats like to sleep with us or during the day nap on our bed. I found the best way to not feel like I am boiling in acid at night from the allergies is to change the bedding comforter and all about every other day. I also have to make my side of the bed when I get up and I cover it with a throw for the animals to lay on instead of directly on my pillow or covers. That helps a little. At night I live off of my allergy meds ( Allegra) and Benedryl both spring and fall.
When I got allergy tested about 13 years ago and found out all I was allergic to ( a big waste of money since what do you do about grass, dust, trees, pollen? Pet dander is about the only semi-controllable one and getting rid of your pets is like getting rid of your kids. Plus I am also allergic to cow and horse dander and living in a farming community its in the air. We did get rid of the living room carpet and put down laminate floors. Eventually, we will the bedroom as well. I have to dust a lost, sweep and mop a lot, and wash throws, curtains, and anything that collects dust a lot.
These are the only tips I have. If you have any I am glad to hear them.
Let’s go see how the others endure the allergy season.
