    k so it's april now, which is my favorite month of the year because it's the month I was born in, however, every april the pollen comes out and I have SEVERE allergies to pollen, last year in my area we had record breaking pollen counts and it actually gave me hay fever, my eyes itch and water and swell up, nose gets stuffy and/or runs, constant sneezing/coughing, headaches...:frusty: all this even while being on my two prescription allergy meds which are very good, if I forget to take it I see a HUGE increase in the severity of my symptoms, currently taking xyzal 5mg tab once a day, and pataday eye drops given to me by my optometrist

    anyone else in my boat? lol

    mine have been kicking up a little bit, bu just like a little sniff and my eyes bugging me, but it might be cause of cold and old contacts, but eat honey from bees in your area, helps a little bit, but it has to be from your area, preferably from your town

    eating local honey? that's interesting I've never heard of that before, one of my best girl friends is a bee keeper and she keeps huge jars of honey around so I might need to try that, thanks :thumbsup:

    I have allergies too. Claritan D does wonders for me though. I know it's not the best med out there but works for me, and goes to show you how mild my allergies are. I definitely feel it if I don't take claritan though. I'll wake Up sneezing and all itchy. Once summer gets closer (which is the worst time for me), I try and take on every 24 hrs on the dot, helps keep me normal.

    thanks bro I appreciate it, kinda stock looking except for the lift and tails but I'm going to add the clear headlights in a couple days and flowmaster exhaust soon but that'll probably be about it, I'm not into big exterior mods like brush guards and all that

    I used to get them bad when I was a kid, but they've been slowly going away lately. A generic allergy pill a day in the spring and fall is all it takes to keep things under control usually. Living in the desert also helps lol

    if you're gay for that then I'm gay cause I knew it was sexual but didn't know EXACTLY what the reference was so I was just like...yep, sure! lol

    that must be nice lol mine seem to be getting worse every year, could be the pollen getting worse but still, I don't ever remember feeling this bad every year when I was a kid

    i got allergy tested.. of the 27 shots they gave me... im allergic to 24 of the things. ever grass around here, highly allergic to cottonwood and ragweed... all kinds of other crap.


    I do these allergy drops that go under your tongue and build your immune system for those allergens. so far it has helped... ALOT! for 2 months straight I used to look like i was super depressed. eyes watering like crazy, nose dropping constantly, felt like crap every day. Haven't had much issues yet... i haven't even taken allergy meds either this year.
