How can something so beautiful be so frustrating? That what goes through my mind when I see all those blooming trees that seem to be everywhere right now. Seriously, I don't think I've ever seen so many trees in bloom than I have this year.
"It's just because you're so affected by them right now," my wife said today and I know she's right. Things got so bad today that after dropping the kids off at their writing class, she had to take over the driving duties because I had to keep closing my eyes so often. I was becoming a driving hazard.
Sure, there are medications I can take, but I personally don't like taking them. They make me more tired than I already am, and I have to keep taking them. Truth be told, I don't know how well they work for me. I've found some natural oils that seem to help. I don't feel so bad about taking those.
Everyone seems to love spring. I'd love it a lot more if it didn't affect me so much. But about the time I just can't take it anymore, things calm down and life returns to normal. I know I'll have another bout of allergies in the fall--those don't see to be so bad.
So, here's to the agony and the allergies! It's really a small price to pay for all the beauty, not to mention the beneficial aspects of all those blossoms. I guess it's just my cross to bear.
