I have suffered from extreme allergies since I was a child. Grew up in San Antonio, and my allergist told my mom it was one of the worst places. Not sure why, but I think SA is one of the greatest cities on earth. Took allergy shots for several years in SA. Did alright until I moved to Dallas after college. Went back through shots for 4 years and had no problems until about 20 years later. Started allergy shots again in 2010.
Married and moved Abilene in 2011. Lots of wind & dust but no real problems. Asthma was better. Then we moved to Corpus Christi (CC), lived on Port Aransas for 4 mos during height of Red Tide. Yes it does cause respiratory problems in people and animals (our dog couldn't stop sneezing). Once it
blew over, by NOV, it was fine. I didn't have to use allergy nose spray or inhalers too much. Also lived in Rockport on golf course with plenty of green but I believe the gulf breeze, humidity and salt air were better for me. We now live in far SW TX about 1.5 hrs from Big Bend. Oh my!! Arid climate but the wind blows, and we get allergens from Mexico, New Mexico and goodness knows from where else! I am ready to get back to the coast; although, the Texas Hill Country has been our retirement dream. I do, however, disrespectfully disagree about most folks in DFW -- but I was a Dallasite for 28 years.
Don't miss the traffic, but Dallas & Ft Worth have plenty of culture as long as you don't compare to NYC because nothing I've found in US has so
Much to offer as far as culture ! Best to you.

I just moved to Dallas from Florida, I have never had worse allergies in my life. Unbelievable. I read the heavy pollution actually makes it worse, helps the spore grow. Just great. Any advice??
