Dear Allergy Sufferers:

I know who you are and how you feel. I am dead serious when I say that I have wanted the super power of hibernation for many years now so that I can sleep through spring , or more specifically, oak pollen season. I have NEVER met anyone who rivals the suffering I’ve had. Ok, maybe one lady came close…. but she has now moved to an oak tree free region half way across the globe, and is no longer sneezing her head off. I have thought many times of packing up my things and moving there with her because the quality of my life had diminished so greatly during this season, that I was downright miserable from mid January to mid April. There were an unending amount of tissues and medicine in my pockets, purse, kitchen, bedroom and car. I needed help, and I couldn’t find it.
