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.

Marketplace Weekend wants to know about your experiences with allergies. Do you drop lots of money on antihistimines? Get shots from your doctor? Grin and bear it?

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.
