Immune balance and pollen count: I’m hangin’ tough

I was in the shower this morning when a dreaded feeling started coming over me. A small itch in my nose, growing to a bigger itch. And finally 3 or 4 rapid-fire sneezes. And my eyes starting to itch as well.
Out of the shower, dressed, in the car and off to a business meeting across the state, where I was driving past miles of Iowa’s finest cornfields, fully tasseled, backed by acres of pasture and woods. All with my air vent turn on and blowing on me, plus windows cracked. No sneezing, wheezing, watering or snottering.
I just looked up my local area’ s pollen count. It’s categorized as high for today and tomorrow, very high two days later. And who is the advertiser on that site? Zyrtec. Nice strategy. But I’m no longer a target for that product.
