Cedar Is Evil

I don't know for sure that it's cedar trying to kill me, but allergies are running rampant. I could go to sleep now and not wake until tomorrow morning. Except for the coughing. On top of all this, I have a wake to go to for a co-worker's husband. I can't not go. Even if I just stay 15 minutes, I have to make the effort. So I'm off to nap until the wake.

I'm so sorry you're feeling under the weather! The kids have had endless colds (since before Christmas). I swear, we're keeping Triaminic in business all by ourselves!

I hope the wake wasn't too stressful, and that your family is hanging in there, too.

I am a very, very lucky person with no allergies. Meanwhile everyone around me is going crazy with the cedar. Hope you find some relief soon!

I started getting allergies when I moved to California. I've got no idea what I'm allergic to. Only that Disneyland in the spring is a very bad idea for me.

Sorry you're having such a miserable time. But I'm sure your friend will appreciate your attendance.

And hey, my word verification is "syneses". Creepy.

Try Zyrtec - it rocks! But, of course, I'm coughing today, too, but at least I can breathe - for the most part.

Good luck! Hope you feel better!

Kerry, I'm doing my best to keep Robitussin and Halls in business too!

Avery, excuse me while I say...I hate you!

Lori, I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to something during every season. I used to have allergy shots once a week, which didn't really help. I had a couple different scratch tests, but haven't had one since I was in my early 20s. Cedar though is vicious.

Susye, I liked Zyrtec when I got it as a prescription, but the over the counter one I tried recently made me very sleepy. Although, at this point I'd be okay with sleepy just as long as I didn't have to blow my nose every 10 seconds.
