My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Allergies

Blog Prompt: You find out you are highly allergic to something you love. Do you give it up (no matter how hard it is) or not (and deal with the consequences of the allergy)?

I am allergic to lots of things in nature like dust, leaf mold, pollen and even animals which means I really have a problem hiking in the spring and the fall. There is no way that I would give it up and luckily I found out that if I take an allergy pill before I go hiking, the problems afterwards are not as severe. If I don’t take the pill, I might sneeze a lot or my face gets really itchy and the next morning my eyes are swelled shut. If I take the pill, I just feel a little itchy, and my eyes aren’t totally swelled shut. So I just deal with it. I’m just thankful that I’m already married and my poor hubby won’t go screaming into the forest when he sees me in the morning.

Oh, I was allergic to my pet rats, but I never even thought of giving them away. Just popped a few pills and dealt with it :)
