I’m living my life in a fog

filled with despair.

Tears running down my face

eyes blurry

tissues at my side.

    Fight fire with fire. I take essential oils as a supplement and I no longer need my Zurtek. Let me know if you would like to learn more.

      This was truly a joke/humor post because I’m not a poet (no kidding). But I thought it would be a funny way to express how my life is pollen today. After I see my grandson’s tee-ball game I’m taking a Benadryl and a nap. I look like a basset hound.

      • Hey, anybody can be a poet if they write poetry. This was better than some ‘serious’ poems I’ve read. (And possibly some I’ve written…)

        Thanks! My husband burst out laughing when he read it. Of course I think he’s lost count of how many times I’ve sneezed today. And I’m sure it’s very annoying. At least I’m not teaching today. Although the students would get a kick out of me not being able to get through a sentence.

    So sorry to hear you’re miserable. 😦 Have you seen an allergist? You shouldn’t have to suffer like this! My husband has year-long allergies and hasn’t been able to taste much for a few years now because of chronic congestion, but at least his meds (and shots) keep his other symptoms at bay. Hope you get some relief!

      Thanks. That was truly meant to be a joke, although I’m not exaggerating the symptoms. Just exaggerated my despair lol. Benadryl works wonders, but not if I want to function. So after seeing my grandsons today I’m going to come home, take a Benadryl and have a nap. If you wrote a book about murder by allergies I would buy it right now.


  4. I can relate, baby. Apparently I was a “mouth breather” last night. Woke up dryer than King Tut’s mummy. Sinuses are so bad right now. Can’t be pollen in the air since it’s been raining here for 3 weeks. Used to be only seasonal, but in the last few years I have nick-named myself Cotton Ball Head. That’s what my nose must be stuffed with. Yes, Benadryl works, but the trade-off is a Zombie-like trance state that renders my usually effervescent personality into that of a doorknob. So, I feel your pain, like Thoreau said, “If misery loves company, misery has company enough.”

  5. I have a similar reaction to certain hairsprays which is why we ditched all aerosol sprays years ago.

  7. LOL! Pollen, that was good. Yeah, probably not so funny for those suffering through it though.

  8. I hope you live through this yearly ordeal, my friend suffers too and cries with the pollen.

  9. Ah yes, the joys of pollen. Oh, and the Flonase does work. I use it daily.

    You had me worried until the last line! But then I just felt empathy, because I am shedding the same kind of tears.

    Me too, I was concerned about your mental state until I saw the last line. You scamp.
