space_pirate1.jpgThere is an old movie called “Explorers” and in the movie one of the characters says that space pirates are the scourge of the universe.  I disagree.  No matter how bad space pirates may be, allergies are worse.We are usually affected only once a year but that is more than enough.  The sore throat, stuffy head, coughing, sneezing, and on and on are enough to make us miserable. . .

Doctors tell us that allergies are not contagious.  I beg to differ.  One of us will always come down first-we avoid each other as much as possible and still the other one is sick within a week.  Doctors also say you do not run fever with allergies but again, I beg to differ.  We both run fever everytime.

So this week is my week to be down with allergies, and so far I have the runny nose and scratchy throat only but I know what is ahead!!!  I sure wish there was a cure for this but time and prayer are the only things that seem to work.

    Patti, Sorry to hear you’re “under the weather.” Allergies can sure be debilitating. Our grandmother’s old-time recipe of hot tea seems to work for me. I use Twinnings Lemon and Ginger Herbal Tea. The ginger seems to help open up the congestion and I think the warmth soothes so you feel a little better. (Maybe it’s just the placebo effect) Hope you feel better soon.
