15 Things All Seasonal Allergy Suffers Want You To Know

Spring = Death. Well at least for those that suffer with seasonal allergies. It's a really hard time and we struggle through it every year. Oftentimes those that don't suffer make the same frequent comments or ask the same questions. Us allergy suffers want you to know these things before you ask us the same old questions and make the same old comments.

1. The sight of blooming trees make us want to sneeze.

2. We are jealous of those that can sit outside all day.

3. We sit outside for an hour and we start sneezing.

4. We sit in the grass and immediately start to feel itchy.

5. Really participating in any outdoor activity is a bad idea.

7. We ALWAYS have to shower after being outside.

8. Rain is a double-edged sword.

We want it to rain to wash away the pollen, but the rain makes plants pollinate more. It really is a double-edged sword.

10. We go through boxes and boxes of tissues.

11. We just want to sleep all the time.

We have to take benadryl in the mornings a lot which leaves us feeling drowsy throughout the day. Also, we just want to sleep because it's better than staying awake and suffering.

12. We can't focus.

Try getting schoolwork done while you have to blow your nose every 30 seconds. Also it's hard to focus when your eyes are non-stop itching and burning.

13. People constantly ask us if we are sick.

For the THOUSANDTH time, no. I have allergies and am not contagious.

14. People constantly ask us if we are high.

Again, we are not high. We can't help that allergies make our eyes red and dry.

15. We just can't do much about it and have to struggle through spring.

Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.

Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
