Do any of you suffer with this?  OMGosh....I have it bad.  Haven't felt great the last couple of days because of it. I've used the nettie pot about 10 times.  lol  It helps but not for long.  sigh...Tired of sneezing....tired of can't breathe out of one side of my nose...tired of it!!!   LOL  Ok...thanks for letting me whine.  I hope that whatever is in the air and making me crazy is GONE soon  lol   :)

I dont usually, but it seems like the older I get the more I suffer. Maybe I am more sensitive to allergens now that im older

Oh sheez.  It's that time of year, isn't it?  Until about 20 years ago, I was never bothered with allergies but as I've gotten older it seem I can correlate some symptoms to the increased pollens and molds in the air.  My symtoms, though, are a bit odd.  I don't get the sneezing or congestion; my symptoms seem to be a foggy/fuzzy brain feeling, an inability to concentrate, a feeling of wanting to take a nap.  In the past, if I took a couple of sudafed (generic) first thing in the morning, that would prevent the foggy/fuzzy feeling.  I hesitate taking sudafed now, though, due to the fact it can cause rapid heartbeat and I seem to have a predisposition to what is called PSVT (Paroxysmal SupraVentricular Tachycardia) - my heart will all of a sudden start beating greater than 200 beats per minute!  So far I haven't noticed the foggy/fuzzy symptoms yet this year.  I guess I've been too pre-occupied about other things to pay much attention.

This time of year my nose is always interferring with the love life of some trees.  I try blowing my nose but somehow still always end up snuffling.

Yes, it is that time of year and I hope you don't have any symptoms at all!!  lol  I feel really tired and just want to lay down with it too.  Ugh....no energy at all and that's not a good thing!!  lol

LOL  I'm right there with you.  One side of my nose is stopped up and the other side is the opposite.  How weird is that????  lol  When the boys were growing up my middle step son would cry if he had a cold or anything that made his nose get stopped up.  He'd say mama I can't breathe out of this nose and point to one side.  It always cracked me up!!!  I still pick on him about that.  lol   :)

I am sorry that you are feeling so poorly. I actually had enough of my face aching because of sinuses and went to the doctor on Thursday. He said allergy. I am taking Claritin in the morning, another allergy med in the evening, and mucinex, and it does seem to help. I also use my netipot.
