My Allergies Have Hit Me Something Fierce

Definitely need some advice here! For the past few weeks my allergies have been killing me. Like, I am completely tired of dealing with the constant sneezing (when I can actually breathe). And not getting real sleep at night is the worst. I’m constantly tired.

I’ve tried just about every medicine out there. From allergy meds to sinus meds and everything in between. Nothing really helps. Some stuff may seem to work for a day or two, but that’s it. Maybe I built a tolerance, maybe it was all in my head?

I’ve been looking into buying an air purifier for my room. From everything I’ve read it seems like a good way to help my allergies.

Another problem is that even though I don’t smoke, my roommates do. And even though they smoke outside, the smokey smell makes its way indoors. I’m sure that isn’t helping my breathing problem. But I think a good air purifier will help that too.

The downside is I really don’t want to spend that kind of money! These things (at least the well-reviewed ones) aren’t cheap. We’re talking like $200-300 just to clean the air in my room. Plus buying new filters twice a year or so. Ugh!

Trust me, I’m looking for more practical options. I really don’t want to drop that kind of cash if I don’t have to. So if you have any other suggestions, please send them over this way!
