Short post and Q+A

Sorry I have been so busy lately I haven't been able to post.  I am also not sure what to post about so I will post about a weird allergy dream I had and then some Q+A.

I dreamed I went to my allergist and told him the inside of my nose felt weird.  He examined and looked inside and told me that a patch of very tiny flowers were starting to grown in each nostril.  I asked him to take them out and he told me its impossible to remove them.  I asked how this could happen and why I never heard of it before.  He said that its a rare thing that sometimes happens and no-one knows why.  I left and was freaking out about it and what would happen when they started pollinating.   Everyone I talked to just said 'oh well', like it was no big deal.  After that I woke up.


Q: Out of all the things that you're allergic to, is there one allergen you react most severely to? 
A: I react severely to most of the things I am allergic to.  There are 3 things that are the worst, but its hard to say if one is worse than the other 2.  Its cat dander, ragweed pollen, and sage pollen.  With those I don't get a build-up of symptoms, it all just comes on really quickly and gets worse from there.  The effects last a long time after I am no longer exposed to them.

Q:How do you deal with air travel? 
A: I try to avoid it as much as possible.  It makes my head and ears hurt really bad with pressure and congestion.  It takes a day or so for the horrible headache to go away so the 1st day I go somewhere I can't do anything.

Q: Are you allergic to perfumes/scents and has that caused issues in public transit?
A: Yes I am, and it has.  When my allergies act up I usually try to run off but in public transit I am pretty much stuck and really close to what is bothering my nose.  I get many weird looks and its pretty embarrassing.

Not sure if I will be able to post again before the end of the year but I'd like to.  Give me some ideas, some feedback on my posts, and I am always happy to keep doing Q+A.  Feel free to contact me on e-mail or yahoo messenger too if you want to chat.

Happy Holidays!
