Are other people starting to have their sinuses or asthma or what else attacking up?

I find summer very hard because you want to be out and walk, garden,sit and read.
The pollen and the humidity at times make it worse than the winter

I don't want to be out. I'm allergic to bee and wasp stings. When I'm out, I spend my time dodging insects and walking away from them. It's very stressfull. I stay indoor, wishing for winter to come back.

I hear you !!!!!!!!!!!
When I was 13 I stepped on a bumble bee and my foot swelled, I through up and had anaphylatic reaction, some of which I do not recall as I passed out.
Since then I also avoid bee, wasps, ants, spiders.
My sons told me years ago do not wave your arms Mum, they will come after you!!
I try to walk away calmly, not have any sweet drinks, no blue clothes.
Be careful even by evergreen plants, I learned that a few years ago.

Yeah, I know. It's hard not to run away when you see one hovewring around your head or around your body.

I did a lot of reasearch on it and you know what I found out? That if you wear deodorant, you'll attrack them. On the other hand, sweat also attracks them. So damn if you do, damn if you don't. So I stay indoor as much as I can.

I never heard the blue clothes thing. I heard nothing dark, no jeans, no black and nothing that looks like a flower. So basically, white.

Without sounding like a commercial - I am struggling to decide which allergy medication to trust. I really don't have a choice but to take something for seasonal allergies- but I'm quite nervous about some of the studies done with many of the pseudoephidrine-based medications due to their links to strokes and cardiac problems.

Any suggestions?

I share your concern, I once had a reaction with my heart a quite a few years ago.
I really understand your concerns though.
I basically use nasal and eye drops and have for years.
Then I have my one set of pills for really bad days,
I have nasal surgery to remove polpys about 15 years ago. It helped alot.
Good luck
