I love. . . and a question

warm, sunny days

long naps on Shabbos

cake, bread, muffins, scones, or any carb laden food


a long novel with lots left to read

time to read the long novel

all the work and parenting that my husband does around here

when my kids make me laugh

And now for my question-really bad allergies have been acting up: sneezing, runny nose, etc. Anybody had good luck with an over the counter allergy med? Benadryl works but then I am comatose for hours after. I need something that will help but not require a bed in the immediate vicinity. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Hi Lady, I love all of those things too!

I would try Wal-phed- it's the walgreen's brand allergy medicine- it works for me!

i have tried every allergy medication under the sun. they all either didnt work or made me really tired and woozy. You can try Zyrtec or Claritin - but I find that for really little people they can still knock you out. THe only thing that works for me is Allegra - but it is by prescription. Good luck! Today was such a bad allergy day!!!

Try Zyrtec. Take it at night and its supposed to last 24 hours, or at least that's how it used to be. Thank G-d I havent needed it since i moved to Chicago, but I clearly remember when Zyrtec came on the market as a prescription. It was life altering for me. Nothing ever worked before for me. Good luck.

for your allergies, you MUST do accupunture. i know it sounds crazy, but it really really works. and then you won't have to take all those meds for the entire season. i was helped in just two sessions last year and i was great for the rest of the spring/summer season. mine are bad again too and i'm dying to find time to go get accupuncture again!
