If you’ve felt like your allergies are extra bad this year, it’s not your imagination. More people have allergies than did in the past, and global warming is linked to higher concentrations of pollen and longer allergy seasons. So, it’s rough out there.

Let us know how you cope — and what you spend, by emailing the Weekend team at weekend@marketplace.org or filling out the form below.
