If I Were a Dwarf, I'd Be Sneezy and Itchy

Since I was a teen or so, I have had a nasal allergy. I haven't gone to the doctor about it, but I've deduced that it seems to flare up when ragweed pollen is high.  I've gotten so bad, that I look like I've been sobbing.

I also have accumulated one food allergy. I just noticed this one within the past couple years.  An allergic reaction to shrimp.   I can eat some, but if I eat too much, my neck will start to itch.  If I eat much more than that, the itching will creep over the rest of my skin.

I know this is minor compared to some allergies I've heard of.  However, they are allergies, just the same.

Sneezy and itchy, sounds like me. Always sneezing, rubbing my eyes...have to keep the medicine cabinet stocked with antihistamines. I should buy stock in Kleenex

I've got "seasonal allergies"--they flare up in the spring and in the autumn. I hate it! lol I'd hate even more to be allergic to shrimp, as it's occasionally one of my favorite foods... I feel for you there. :P
