Ack! Pollen!

pollenlevels.png With the return of the awesome weather this week, we were also greeted with the return of the tree pollens that make my life an exercise in continual misery. The last few days, I feel as if there’s been a grenade of snot detonated inside my sinuses, and no amount of Zyrtec, Claritin and Ricola Cough Drops can make up for the differential. My blue car is now a light green car, thanks to all the pollen, and the rain we’re supposed to get can’t get here soon enough.

In the meanwhile, I’ll be hiding indoors, looking out at the beautiful weather, and considering amputating my own head.

    That would probably be the most gross thing I’ve read this week, if I didn’t feel exactly the same way.

    Thank you for articulating what i’ve been feeling all week! Why can’t I just shut up and enjoy the weather like the rest of DC?

    I’ve had terrible sinuses for ages and have used just about everything, sprays, netti pots, meds, homemade stuff, etc and found nasal washes to work the best. I’ve tried a few, but found a brand called SaltAire Sinus in particular to be my favorite as it has a built-in pump, so I’m not dumping into my nose, but rather shooting up into it. The angle makes a huge difference in clearing sinuses, plus it’s so much easier to use. I recommend to anyone with sinus problems.
