Rant: Is there such a thing as Seasonal Insanity?

For those of you that share this problem, I feel the deepest empathy. For those that do not, I'd like to drop something very heavy or dangerously sharp on your pinkie toe.

I have the W.O.R.S.T. allergies, and for the past week I've done nothing but sneeze and scratch my itchy red eye balls to the point just before I do permanent damage. My entire face feels tingly, swollen, and itchy just at the sight of a lawnmower.
On the way to the store I saw a couple of those huge tractor mowers going at a big field and I almost turned around because I knew what kind of attack I would have after I passed them. But I decided hearing both boys scream "uunnnk" (milk) all day in vain would be worse. Definitely worse. That last part's a shot out to anyone who actually watched the entire movie "Almost Heroes."

So I drove by the field of h-e-double hockey sticks, and I still haven't recovered. If there was a perfect picture to describe what my head should look like based on my allergies this would be it....
...except that I'm white
...and female
...with slightly less facial hair
....and my fro is slightly less socially accepted
...and there's several hundred millions of dollars less in my bank account. But just focus on the swollen and itchy looking parts and that's what I look like.
