I have horrible outdoor allergies. Starting probably around kindergarten I started getting allergies and they were so bad I need allergy shots. I took shots for 6 years and stopped when I got to middle school. I used to have just spring time allergies but after being diagnosed with UC my allergies are just as bad in the fall too. Ragweed, tree pollen, dust, mold...I hate you!! I should say that I'm thankful I'm not allergic to dogs like my mom.
