Sometimes you just have to face facts. Mother Nature wants me dead. I can think of no other reason for her to send out the millions of tiny little hit men most people call pollen. They are on the attack. They’re invading my life. They want me gone.
It hasn’t always been this way with Mother Nature and me. When I was a kid we got along just fine. Send me outside for hours at a time and there wouldn’t be a sniffle in sight. But the cruel, cruel hands of time have done many things to let me know I’m getting older. A gray hair here and there. A wrinkle or two. Allergies that make me want to hibernate through spring…
But hibernating through spring would make me totally sad face. I love spring. I love the flowers blooming. I love the trees budding. I pretty much love everything except the itchy eyes and the running nose and the feeling that death will come at any minute because breathing is essential to life and I can’t breath and I’m pretty sure I’m gonna die and will someone please help me I can’t take it anymore!
The MyAllerGenius website hopes to give me a fighting chance against Mother Nature. You can sign up for pollen alerts via text, get helpful beauty tips, find tons of allergy info and even print off savings on Allegra products at CVS! (Did you know you should shower at night to get rid of any pollen that’s on you or your hair? I’ve alway been a morning shower girl. Who knew?)
Through the end of May you can save $6 on 45ct Allegra at CVS with your ExtraCare card. Combine that with the $4 off coupon from the MyAllerGenius website and we’re talking serious savings. (You can see my entire CVS shopping trip in my Google+ Album.) Now I just need one Allegra every night and I’m ready to face the next 24 hours. I’m not saying Allegra has made me besties with Mother Nature. I’m just saying that now it doesn’t feel like she wants to kill me. She’s become that slightly annoying friend that you wish would leave you alone but when everything is said and done she’s sort of harmless so you ignore her. Yes. That’s my relationship with Mother Nature now. From murder to annoying friend. Thanks, Allegra!
Is Mother Nature trying to kill you, too? Fight back with Allegra and take back your spring!
