There’s a lot more to having an allergy than just the suffering. It disrupts your way of life and whilst there are a number of worse things in life, it’s still a goddam nuisance!
1- “Seasonal” is a very loose term.
There are four seasons in a year and the chances are, you could be suffering in every one of them. So “daily” might be a better word to describe some.
2- Your sore nose.
A red nose isn’t just for Christmas. You’ll most likely be blowing it all the time and it ain’t pleasant.
3- You can’t leave the house.
You want to go out and play or maybe even go to work, but you know what’s out there is coming for you and going to get you.
4- You pray for rain.
When it rains, you’ll actually be able to go outside!
5- Non-allergy sufferers are annoying.
They constantly tell you how glad they are not to have your “affliction”.
6- Remembering to take your pill
You may need to take one or several a day, but you might also leave them in the house and forget to take them with you.
7- You struggle at work
When the only stuff that can keep you going makes you feel sleepy, it’s not a great feeling
8- They stop you enjoying life
Sometimes you have to put everything on hold for them and it doesn’t seem fair.
9- If you’re an animal lover, it’s heartbreaking
You want to pat the dog or stroke the cat but you can’t and the animals wonder why.
10- Sinus headaches
They’re bad enough on their own but when they turn into infections, you really don’t want anyone else around to witness your mood.
