Hay Fever


I have a real bad case of hay fever. Every May, since about 2005, I can't go outside without my allergies flaring up. I don't know exactly which plant bothers my nose the most, I always thought it was the pollen from the trees. A few minutes ago I thought it would be fun to take some pictures of the cows. After just a few minutes outside, I started have a full-on sneezing attack. My eyes were dripping, my nose was dripping; I was miserable.
I came inside and took some medicine. I washed my face. It is getting a little bit better, but the back of my throat, eyes, and nose still itch. It's bad enough that I am considering going to the doctor, and getting some stronger allergy medicine. It just doesn't work: living in the country, and being allergic to it.

I suppose you still have the FreshAir machine ?
It really helped our former neighbor and also Rolf who suffers greatly from allergies.
He has the machine running in his bedroom during the day and downstairs at nighttime or even upstairs on the landing with his bedroom door open. It has a wonderful effect on him. He doesn't sneeze with watery eyes any longer.
Just put it on "normal".
It will keep your house cleaner and will kill germs and molds at the same time.
You could give it a try.

Omama, great idea. We'll do that. If only we had only large enough to purify the outdoors too.

Hi, Wendy and I were just chatting and looking at your blog. I've looked in on your life every once in a while. I love your pictures. So, I've gone to a doctor who elliminates allergies and this has been the best spring ever. My nose and eyes aren't running and itchy and I can breathe. If you're interested, you can find a practitioner at www.NAET.com It worked wonders on my seasonal allergies. It's very simple to do a few inexpensive treatments. Thought it might be something you'd want to look into or call me and I'll explain it to you.
Hope life is going great in your new place.
