This Hypo-Allergenic Life


Last week I mentioned the multitude of things that were recommended to me by my doctor to rid my home of allergens.
It cost me a small fortune, but I bought everything, and slowly this week I've been putting them into place. Applying the carpet stuff seemed very easy, and it was. However, vacuuming it back up caused a series of problems, starting with a dust cloud so thick I had to open windows and turn on a fan.
I didn't have a lot of faith that it was going to work. But after cleaning the carpets, washing the dog, washing all of my clothes and linens, and putting up the vent guards, it finally hit me today- I haven't sneezed once. I haven't taken one decongestant. I haven't had a headache. I've felt just fine. I'd even go so far as to say I think this must be what normal people feel like every day.
It's pretty nice not being slightly uncomfortable and miserable all day long. I could get used to this.
But I won't get to.
Not for long anyway.
It's a long story for another day, but it looks like I'll be moving soon.
*sigh*
