Allergies. Spring is just the worst time for me. I can’t do any critical listening because of plugged ears and a stuffy head. This year is particularly bad. Over the counter anti-histamines can barely make a dent in the congestion and scratchiness.
You’d think 20 years of living in one of the top 5 worst areas in the Mid-Atlantic region for allergies I’d have just gone to an allergist, but I’ve seen iffy results from friends and acquaintances. It’s amazing when I go out to RMAF - within literally an hour or two it’s all gone. Maybe nature is trying to tell me something.
