I always wondered why I had a cold in spring, at least that’s what I thought it was. The weather is normally nice and not too cold, so I never understood that.
I later discovered that I am allergic to pollen, so I it’s not a cold I have but hay fever and it lasts the whole month of April.
I constantly have a runny nose, itchy throat and eyes…..not fun at all! It’s so bad that I have to take anti-histamines otherwise its unbearable. It’s even worse when I go to a house with cats that moult a lot in spring …my throat literally closes up and I feel like I am choking, so I avoid going near cats at all costs.
I am so relieved when the month of May comes along, then I can be my normal self again.
