My Brother has severe outdoor allergies (grass, trees, weeds, mold). He used to avoid doing anything outside. His Allergist finally talked him in to trying allergy shots, and now he goes hiking every weekend, and during some of his vacation time, spends 1-2 weeks hiking and camping with friends. The allergy shots have helped him tremendously. It isn't 100% gone, but he's still getting the shots, and still thinks the shots help a whole lot.
Only your doctor can determine whether or not you are able to do the rush immunotherapy.
Also, you might consider looking into NAET, since it can work faster than regular allergy shots.
