this may sound really naive, and I apologize, but do you have the same environmental allergies in NC as in New England? My husband suffers from the usual - ragweed, hayfever, pollen, etc. With a milder climate, do you have the same down there?

Yes, allergies are bad down here for many folks. We have tons of pollen. (I just changed my a/c filter...it was yellow and I changed it not too long ago!) Some report their allergies disappear because what was ever bothering them isn't around anymore.

For others, it's even worse. My husband's allergies for example are 100 times worse while mine are the same (mild).

I completely agree with this comment. For some they seem to get better. For others it seems to get worse.

My husband forgot he had allergies in Northern Virginia, while in central Virginia they were moderate. Here they're severe, which he was expecting as he used to live in Cary. Unfortunately, one of his allergies is to pine pollen

I had fairly moderate ragwood (Fall) allergies in NJ. They disappeared here but I am reacting for a short period in the spring now when the pollen first hits ....about 2 weeks.

I guess everybody feels the same. Mine are much better down here while my husbands are much worse.
