Friday morning I woke up at 3:30 with the sensation of something falling into my eye.  It hurt.  I was in tears.  I let the tears come in hopes that they would wash away the foreign object.  It happened again to my other eye at 5:00 when I opened my eyes to the sound of the alarm.  My right eye was puffy and blurry all day.  Figuring that this was the first strike of allergies, I took half a Zyrtek and went about my day.  It is really hard to read with one eye all blurry and every day I have to read a lot...

The eye got better.  Today there is no blurriness at all.  In fact, there are no other allergy symptoms.  Every spring, I think I am going to escape seasonal allergies when all the sudden they hit me.  The last 2-3 years, they have attacked my eyes first.  That's playing dirty, going for the eyes, if you ask me...

Except for that eye incident, I have had no real allergy symptoms this year.  The only difference I can think of is that I have been swimming.  Maybe putting my face in chlorinated water three times a week has helped to wash away the allergens.  I swam today and my head feels great, as well as the rest of my body...  Last week was the first sign of allergy symptoms and also the first week I have not been able to swim at all (for a variety of reasons). 

Could there be a connection between swimming and disappearance of allergy symptoms?  I guess time will tell.  I have a few more weeks of tree pollen before final results will be in...
