Handsome is concerned about my liver. Apparently, the other organs in my body can just giveout, that is not an issue, but my liver, no, we need to protect that.
In order to do so, H. has started a campaign against my use of over-the-counter allergy medicine. Let me be clear: I am not abusing it. I have a 24-hour allergy pill that I take about 3 days a week, and when I’m congested (once or twice a week, max), I take a decongestant. I know, its out of control. Especially for someone who has had seasonal allergies for all of her teen/adult life. Oh, and in the winter, I don’t take any allergy medicine. Because that’s not a season in which my seasonal allergies bother me.
Sarcasm aside, I see this level of use as acceptable. Handsome does not. He claims that if I stop taking the medicine, my body will learn how to deal with allergens all by itself. He also claims that if I do not stop taking the medicine, I will do irreparable damage to my liver and it will just up and quit on my and then where will I be, eh? I’m not sure where he gets his information, although I assume he makes it up. He makes most things up when he’s talking to me.
I’m not getting on here to ask you for a vote, and although I did wax (wane?) sarcastic there for a moment, I’m also not on here to mock my wonderful caring husband. What I did get on here to do was to ask you this question:
Do you know of/have you tried any home remedies for seasonal allergies?
If so, how did they work?
I’m looking for everything from lemon juice in your milk to a change in behavior, such as putting AC filters in your windows. Give me your best shot here people. The future of my liver may be at stake. And although I’m a Universal Donor blood type, I’m not a Universal Receiver, and so, due to bad planning in the blood-type-department, if I do end up needing a transplant, Handsome will be unable to help me. And that would earn me a whopper of an I told you so. No one wants that.
