Ach-choo! Stress! Watch that stress

According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, our friend stress can make allergy flareups worse and more likely.

In turn, these flareups can cause a negative frame of mind--more stress. You get where I am going.

Usually the flares come after a day of increased stress--not on the day itself.

The docs recommend allergy sufferers meditate, reduce stress without alcohol and caffeine, ask others for help, make time for relaxation, and eat right.

Washing pollen off things and seeing your allergist for shots is also a good idea.

But don't stress out over it.
