Howdy... I have a couple of job opportunities in the Colorado Springs and Boulder areas and would like to know about the allergy situation from people who may suffer from seasonal allergies.

About Me:

I currently live in the Houston, Texas (Sugar Land) where I receive two allergy shots every two/three weeks along with a daily tablet of Allegra and use of my Flownaze just to cope. My allergies were never this bad until I moved to Houston about a year and a half ago. I think it maybe a combination mold/mildew/pollen, refineries/petro-chemical/chemical plants and high ozone levels in the area.

Is the air in Fort Bend County safe?: (URL code not working?)

I'm thinking of taking a small vacation up to Colorado to see what it is all about in the near future.

Thanks and Gig Em! (Yes, I'm an Aggie)

I graduated from Texas A&M University. We are known as Aggies; a farmer.

Also, how is the mexican food up that way?

Allergies may or may not be worse for you in Colorado. The air is drier (less mold), but there are plenty of pollen-producing plants and--often--a lot of dust in Colorado. So, it depends on what you are allergic to.

There is plenty of crappy Tex-Mex or "California" slop Mexican food in Colorado (unfortunately). If one knows where to look, though, there is some great New Mexican food to be found here, especially in southern Colorado. There are several long threads that discuss this in this forum.

I wouldn't "brag around" the Texas A&M thing too much in Colorado. A lot of Coloradans are not enamored with Texans in general, and Texas sports teams, specifically. (And I have relatives in Texas, including one who taught at A&M for awhile.)

My allergies are better here. I take Loratidine and Flonase daily. I don't think I need the Flonase here, I am going to try and stop using it. It is dry here though, I have found I need to use an eye drop maybe once a week, but it's not a huge deal.

So far, the mexican food in Boston is better than what I've had here in CO so far, but I have many on my to try list.

You might like to try the allergy forecast on weather.com. That site provides the allergens in the air up to a 10 days out.

As a registered nurse, I agree with jazzlover about the allergies. We have patients who say theirs are much better, and some whose are much worse.

As jazzlover said, it depends on what you are allergic to. I never suffered from allergies until I moved to Colorado. I grew up in Wisconsin, moved here from Dallas. When I lived in Boulder I needed medication in the spring. When we moved to the mountains my allergies mostly disappeared. I haven't had to take anything in years.
