I’ve had spring/early summer allergies since I was a kid. I’m not sure to what, specifically, I am allergic, but I know that cottonwood is on the list, as are many kinds of grasses and probably a few other tree pollens as well. Most years, my allergies are pretty easily controlled, but this year, so far, they’ve been ridiculous.

I’ve started back on the roulette wheel of OTC allergy meds, but so far haven’t landed on one that has worked - I’ve tried Allegra, Zyrtec, Flonase, a couple naturopathic ones, and nothing has, so far, knocked them out.

So my first discussion prompt is simple: Do you have allergy meds you use and like that you’d recommend?

My second prompt is, as they say, way more funner. Have you seen Avengers: Endgame yet? If so, what did you think? A reminder, if you’re discussing major plot points from Endgame, please use the spoiler bar tags in the comments - it’s the black square next to the smiley face on the right end of the formatting bar above the comment box. Highlight the text you want to hide, tap that black square, and lo and behold, your comment will be behind black bars, revealed on a tap/hover and click of the mouse.

So, with that in mind, Endgame away! Or allergy med away! Talk about whatever’s on your mind, it’s open thread day!
