Allergy season is here again, though for some it never left.  Both my kids have horrible seasonal allergies.  I guess they inherited it from me and my husband, but mostly from me.  All day today I've been dealing with a major headache despite taking my Allegra.  The allergies just drain you and hit hardest at the beginning of the season when you're not quite sure what you're dealing with.  Is it a cold, a migraine, or am I just nuts?  Then eventually you realize and start taking your meds regularly and also get used to the misery.

I really feel bad for our kids though.  They don't know how to deal with misery, nor should they have to.  They also gain a lot more exposure to the allergens because they still want to go out to play despite the evil lurking outdoors.  As a parent, I don't want to lock them inside either because that would cause other issues like Vitamin D deficiency, Obesity and general slothfulness.  I wouldn't want to be guilty of that now.  Therefore, I let them go out, run around in the grass, take in the 'fresh air' and come back congested.  Then every night I dutifully dope them up on Zyrtec, Singulair and Nasonex and hope for the best.  We make it through the season okay but about once a season there is a morphing into an ear or sinus infection and then we have to deal with antibiotics.  My little one is still a mystery to his allergist since he is constantly sniffling or clearing his throat despite the meds.  It's a lot of fun to go to the movie theater with him while he's doing that!

I know our health issues could be a lot worse so I'm not complaining.....scratch that, since I am complaining.  But I do recognize that it's not the end of the world, it just means that it is the end of the summer.  Time to stock up on my Allegra and Kleenex and do what I can for my sniffly boys.  Hope my fellow allergy sufferers are faring well!
