Allergy Season As Told By Leslie Knope

Spring has officially sprung, which means gorgeous weather, blooming plants, and ... allergies. It's that time of year when that all familiar yellow dust covers everything and triggers all the itchy eyes and watery noses we dread. If you're a seasonal allergy sufferer, you'll totally get these allergy season moments as told by our beloved Deputy Director of Parks and Recreation, Leslie Knope.

When the weather finally starts warming up, and you can actually enjoying being outside again.

When everything's offically in bloom, so you can flood your Instagram with flower pics.

When the first symptoms of your allergies begin to flare up.

When you start seeing ads EVERYWHERE for allergy medicine, like it's targeting you.

Telling yourself you don't need allergy medicine, then going outside for more than 2 seconds.

Anytime you breath outside air, and your allergies hit you like a truck.

Making an executive decision to just not go outside so you don't have a flare up.

Deciding to go somewhere, and seeing how covered in pollen your car is.

When you haven't had any symptoms in a few days, and they sneak back up on you.

When you see everyone else enjoying the weather without having any allergies.

When you've really just had enough and can't wait for some relief.

When it finally rains and washes all the pollen away.

Honestly, just @ spring like:

Giving yourself a pep talk to get through the day.

Finally having a real appreciation for your allergy medicine.

Taking the risk of wearing black outside, even though you know it will just show off all the pollen that clings to it.

When you can't believe you took for granted all the times you could breathe through your nose naturally.

When it seems like the end of the season is no where in sight, and you're just trying to hang on.

When everything is finally dying down, and you can feel like your normal self again.

Hang in there, fellow allergy sufferering ladies! Try to enjoy the weather, stock up on allergy meds, and it'll be over before you know it!
