    forsythia, (consitently year-after-year), but in that it lasts for about a MONTH afterwards makes it pretty clear it can't be the forsythia.

    My best is on the trees that produce the pollen that turns all of our cars that powder-puff yellow every morning thereabouts.

    Since I live in the mountains, it seems to go on for an extra-long time.

    But the only really effective treatment (and cost-effective, too) is Sudafed, and I take Claritin-D 12 in the morning and then nothing at night so I can sleep.  Wish they had a lower dose, though.

    Oh, and antihistamines don't work right on me (fortunately Claritin does nothing) -- they make me hyper, especially BENADRY.

    Happy little moron, Lucky little man.

      I live in the Colorado mountains, and I'm allergic to juniper. Misery for months! I have a HEPA filter in the car, and one in the house, but my wife complains bitterly about being housebound for months in the beautiful spring weather.

      I'll try Sudafed.

        for a day or two after you stop taking it it can be .. depressing.

        This is just the tip of the iceberg of the Meth effect.  The stuff is powerful and it doesn't surprise me in the least that it is being abused.

        I can't fault the diarist for wanting to do something about it.

        Happy little moron, Lucky little man.
