After so many cold, damp and grey winter months it has been wonderful to be able to spend the past couple of weeks sitting outside in the garden, enjoying the warmth and sunshine, watching nature "spring"into life again.
Unfortunately, this has a downside for me as a lifelong hay fever sufferer. I thought that I would be lucky enough to have got away with it so far, being early in the season, but no. Last night I was awoken at 1:30 with the first symptoms. Sneezing, constant runny nose, scratchy throat, puffy, itchy eyes. I think I finally fell asleep around 4 a.m.
Despite taking an antihistamine every day, all year round, sometimes over exposure to the allergens provokes the symptoms with a vengeance and I have to resort to a nasal spray as well to combat the reaction.
You would think I should have learnt my lesson by now.
From today I shall be admiring the garden from inside the house.
Sorry about that because certainly here over towards the North Sea this is the warmest day we have had.ReplyDelete
We have had unseasonably warm weather so far. I don't know how long it can last though.Delete
What a shame JayCee. Would wearing a mask help to reduce pollen intake when you are outside? This April's weather has generally been gorgeous and somehow ironic give the nightmare the world is going through.ReplyDelete
I shall try it out. At least I won't look out of place wearing one!Delete
It's probably tree pollen at this time of year JayCee. Kenalog injection is very good. Don't know if NHS still do it? Doctor Northsider😊.ReplyDelete
Thanks Doc! Haven't heard of that before. I'll look it up.Delete
Oh that’s a shame ..... I also have allergies but don’t really know from what ! I take an antihistamine everyday just to be on the safe side. To look on the positive side, the weather will change from Monday ! XXXXReplyDelete
I seem to be allergic to lots of things! My brother and sister have never had allergies so it's just me, the lucky one 😉Delete
