My allergies are kickin my butt!

I'm trying not to be miserable, but G-d, my allergies are killing me. Claritin is useless. I've been taking it (well, the generic/fake version) and it seriously does nothing for me. I think I need to take it twice a day, although the bottle says not to. What do they know? The trees are in bloom, and it's only been spring for like a day. I should buy stock in Kleenex, I blow my nose so often. I'm a mess and I am so tired of being so congested. I don't even sound like myself anymore, and what's that about? I hear myself speak and think, what are you doing, talking THROUGH your nose? Don't get me wrong, I love to bring her outside during the day, but our backyard is certainly not helping matters. I hate the thought of going to an allergist, but wonder if a regular doc or NP would give me a stronger allergy med. I'm doubtful, but I might give it a shot. If only to avoid shots! I know those would help, but who has time or energy, or the patience? I did them when we lived in Astoria, and they really never did much, but maybe I didn't give them enough of a chance? Either way, I'm not a fan, so I'll suffer through them and hope that the real days of spring reduce the effect. Ha, who am I kidding? Anyone have a pretty, fancy handkerchief I can borrow? I promise I won't give it back!
