It?s not that bad. I get burning eyes, runny nose. I take over-the-0counter stuff. The spring bloom, the lawn, just waking up gives it to me.

Windy days are my worst and grasses. It?s irritating, but only just in spring. It?s better without the wind.

My wife has severe allergies in spring, but not every year. She gets a rash, her feet swell and she itches all over. She gets steroid shots. This year it?s full on.

My son Josh is very allergic to hay. It?s like he has a cold. He gets really bad at the hay farm; he still hauls it, though. Once, we had to take him to emergency.

My sisters have bad allergies. One uses a special blend of honey based on what you?re allergic to. My sister says it helps her build immunity.

I?m one of the blessed few who doesn?t. The wind doesn?t bother me, but my father-in-law gets headaches and has to get shots.
