Major allergy attack!

I’m in the midst of the worst allergy attack that I can ever remember. Eyes and nose were itching like crazy, all the way home on the train. It was all I could do to avoid tearing my eyes out! As soon I got in the house, I downed a couple of Benedryl. That was 10 minutes ago. So far, no relief, but I’m hoping for some soon. This is insane!

And the funny thing is, according to the weather reports, it’s a very mild allergy day today. But this is definitely not my cold because it involves way too much itching to be a cold.
