Damn Allergies


Every spring and fall seasons, depending on the year, I get really bad sinus allergies. I know I’m not the only one who suffers from seasonal allergies, but I seem to be one of the few people who are content with using Benadryl.

What’s so bad about Benadryl?

Most people say they hate Benadryl because it makes them sleepy. What type of reason is that? It’s my impression that the majority of people love to go to sleep. I know I do.

Yes, Benadryl does make me drowsy, but I’ve tried Claratin, Allegra, and all types of allergy medicines; none to my preference. I even thought about that allergy shot procedure through my doctor, until I found out they do like the flu shot and inject you with what you’re allergic to. That’s ridiculous, and apparently the shot has a 15-20% negative rating, meaning you’ll still have allergy attacks.

Benadryl is one simple pill and you know your ass has 4 to 6 hours on the shit before you start hackin, sneezin’, and post nasal dripping away once again. I’m good with those odds, and a little nap here and there during the workday is a plus in my book.

Gimme the Bennys!
