Allergy Answer

My allergies are flaring up again! So I wondered what was blooming that was causing me this misery. My hairdresser said "thistle". I didn't know I was allergic to that but okay. The Atlanta Allergy Clinic says "grass, hickory, and English Plantain". What the heck is "English Plantain" you ask. Well, I wondered that too. Here it is:



Now we know. If you see this strange plant beware!!

I don't know but my family; well, Melvin and Kelsey especially, are having a fit right now with whatever. I feel for you. I guess I'm one of the fortunate few, I don't ever have allergic reactions!! I don't even have reactions to poison ivy. Go figure~

Poor Jason, his allergies are so bad year 'round that we almost own stock in Claritin!

I can't wait to get Anna Marie tested this summer, to see what's causing her problems and how we can get her some help.

I hope you get some answers for Anna Marie. Kayla had to have allergy shots for years because hers were so bad.

Used to play with those as a kid, never knew what they were called...thanks! You wrap the stem around right below the top and then shoot it at someone :-)
