I went to Home Depot and got a pack of respiratory mask. I wore it around my apartment through out the weekend....It helped a lil bit. I only sneezed once.

Don't make the same mistake I did!....I'm from Maryland with severe seasonal allergies...so bad it triggers asthma. This is far worse than Maryland on the pollen scale! I moved to Georgia in February with an April wedding planned....not realizing what April would bring! I was hospitalized a week before my wedding for the respiratory problems caused by the annual blast of pollen!

Please tell me that this is as bad as it gets! Will it be over soon?

We don't really know....They have a lot of trees here and not much water/vapor. It may come down or get worse. The more you drive your car the more dangerous the pollen.

Northern states get their "white snow" in the winter, down here we get our "green snow" in the spring. I would not recommend it if you already have allergy problems, I grew up here and thankfully it doesn't bother me too much, although it drives my daughter crazy.

I agree. My father is from Wisconsin and that "white snow" combined with a long cold winter equals most of what grows is fully killed off and has to start over in spring. In Georgia, we don't get that cold or stay that cold for that long and in a state where it is common for temps to get into the low 70's in January, allergies come back with a vengeance in the spring. I am getting over sinus problems and a change in the weather plus some rain is helping me alot.
