So many fluffy tree jizz outside my window. Looks like it's snowing! FFS.
Warning on the news about Plane trees... Here we go again. Best don my goggles when I'm back in London's famous London again then.
Getting the plane tree cough these days is not a good look.
Absolutely unreal yesterday with the wind. Had tickle in my throat for about 4 hours after getting home.
Yesterday was brutal - and I don’t have hay fever or any allergies. Good luck to those who do. 😬
With the wind today... Jeez.
Even with quite big cycling sunnies on, my eyes burn
I wanted to rip my eyes out yesterday.
Yesterday was the worst day of pissing eyes I've ever had in the 15 years since I've had hayfever. So much fluid oozing from my eyes it felt like my body was trying to self lubricate my eyes from their sockets.
Did actually wonder if its possible to dehydrate yourself to death from constant day long eye leakage. Cycling felt dangerous like I was cycling through heavy rain, was unable to see details in road surface despite glorious all day sun. My eyes were so red it looked like I'd spent the day on the bong with Cheech & Chong.
I've never bothered or really considered it bad enough to take any kind of medication for, but yesterday was the first time I've thought fuck this, that was way beyond mildly irritating, it made one of the nicest days of the year so far a nightmare, I'd have taken anything yesterday.
Ive discovered allergy Eye mist from boots. A little bit of instant relief. Well worth it.
Thanks for the tip, I've just ordered some online so will see how I get on. I'm off cycling in the pollen rich countryside next week for only the 2nd time in 2 years, so anything to help with seeing where I'm going and making the experience less like suffering, I'm all for. I haven't cycled up any proper steep hills in 2 years either so I'll be suffering enough as it is.
Had this that bad about 5 years ago, was akin to what I imagine if someone just blew chili powder into your face.
I think sometimes you just get bad timing in a certain place, every plant/tree is dropping its load right into your eyes and its to much.
Have heard of a few folk this last week getting hit with it, that have never in their life suffered before, our dog included! Poor thing struggled for a few daya before been given ok from vet on what anti histamine to take
