Allergies runneth over

My allergies runneth over. Literally. I have a sore throat. I'm allergic to grass and horses and I hope to expose myself to more grass and horses soon. I think my body's gotten used to Loratadine, so it no longer works. So I ordered Zyrtec yesterday. It used to work for me when my insurance still covered it.

Now my insurance covers no allergy drugs since Loratadine is available over the counter. Consumers Union campaigned vigorously to get Loratadine available as over the counter and it screwed me and millions of others royally.

I could rant for a while about our broken health care system and how useless it is to try bandaids, but I'm sick. So if you like, you can pretend, I did. Or not.
