Apparently it was 'just' hay fever -- no Montezuma or its opposite effect, no temp. But the chills made up for it, often becoming violent. Vertigo, causing me to bump into doorjambs and almost pitch forward into furniture. No sinus problems or chest involvement, making it difficult to figure out just what to medicate. Just a little rain in the middle of all this caused the symptoms to receed somewhat, giving me the clue that it was hay fever caused by the moderate pollen count plus the enthusiastic mowing (without grass bag) of the spacious community lawn. Once the rain quit, the symptoms came back with a roar, but antihistimine really helped everything but the vertigo. At any rate, a week of this is just way too much. It would be nice if we could have a light sprinkle every other day until the pollen subsides. Someone please take note...


  1. oh dear! I hope you don't go through all of May like this too!

  2. My goodness! I know that's awful. I felt like that when I first moved here. I now just get the sexy drag queen voice and runny nose. Feel better. Drink lots of hot tea!
    God Bless

  3. Oh I am sorry you are going through this too - it is so common now, but that doesn't make it any easier. Allergies are the pits. Hope you feel better soon!
