{April 11, 2015}   If you loved me, you’d put me out of my misery

Please, somebody just shoot me and put me out of my misery!

Growing up, I didn’t have allergies other than smoke and when I move to Georgia I still didn’t have allergies. But they say if you don’t have allergies, when you move to Georgia just wait…you will, and it’s true.

Several years before I moved to Colorado, I began to develop allergies  and as soon as the Spring began, my eyes get wet and dry, my nose runs and I can’t stop sneezing.

Spring became unbearable, until I found a great homeopathic remedy and then it wasn’t so bad, I would take the pill every 2 hours, let it dissolve on my tongue just as the instructions said. The instructions said and “let one dissolve on your tongue every 2 hours” and every 2 hours I would start sneezing so I became quite enamored with this particular allergy relief.

One of the things I was so excited about moving to Colorado was the fact that my allergies would not affect me or that it would not be as bad, at least that’s what I was hoping, and let me tell you when I moved to Colorado in the first year I sneezed maybe 3 times… because I had to sneeze and I was fine with that.

I remember coming to Atlanta last April to visit and my allergies kicked in very quickly. When I got here on Thursday I wasn’t here even 12 hours and my allergies started to kick in. Since then I have not stopped sneezing, my eyes are itchy, I have rubbed my right eye to the point where I almost have a bruise, and I’m miserable. I can’t take over the counter allergy medications because they make me drowsy, & I haven’t had the opportunity to go down to Little Five Points to pick up the herbal remedy and I’m not going to have the opportunity before I leave on Monday morning.

That means for the next day I have to deal with this because Buffalo hasn’t welcomed Spring yet so my allergies do not affect me in Buffalo…whoever thought I would be excited to go back to Buffalo where it still cold and winteresq!

Are my friends and family in Atlanta worth all this?  You bet your sweet bippie!

To give you an idea of the pollen count,  http://m.ajc.com/news/news/atlanta-weather-pollen-count-hits-season-high/nkqTt/. Just look at Facebook and if you have friends from Georgia,  the are bound to be done funny memes.

I am done with my pity party…I am going to close my eyes and dream about rain.  Ha ha
