Allergies (Or: Mucus, the Scourge of Mankind)

It seems that I have a very responsive immune system. Which I guess is good overall.

Unfortunately, my body cannot distinguish between a malicious bug and ordinary pollen. This is bad because the main ingredient of the air this time of year is pollen. And so, my allergies are incapacitating me.

I just wish I could make my immune system understand that no, pollen isn't a threat. There's no need to go Red Alert, Condition One. Besides, what good does it do for my survival if my allergies make me unable to breathe or eat?
