I’m sitting here with a runny nose, and sneezing so much I can’t focus. Why? Allergies. My allergies are truly getting the best of me. Usually, I have seasonal allergies, which mean that when the weather gets warm I sneeze a little more often then the usual person. So why am I having such a bad allergy attack in the wintertime? I can thank good old global warming for that one.
In case you haven’t noticed, we sort of skipped winter this year. The climate is all out of whack. All of the normal allergens present during the springtime not only remained present during the winter, but also grew. This article that I read stated, “Without a deep frost like in winters’ past, experts say allergens are sticking around and growing in numbers.”
All of this, combined with the normal allergens that the winter brings on, such as dust mites produced from heating systems, makes this winter very bad for people with allergies.
How are your allergies? Have you noticed an increase of symptoms?
