The grass and mulberry pollen are making life miserable for the old feeder today. My eyes itch so I'd like to scratch them with a wire brush. Doc says antihistamines are Verboten; my only relief is from watery over-the-counter eye drops.
Are folks more sensitive these days? Are there that many more allergens? Is it genetically modified crops? Nasty dust from China? I don't know, but it sure seems to me that there are more folks suffering from various types of allergic reactions now than in the past. I have a police scanner on all the time. It is surprising how many of the emergency calls are for 'difficulty breathing'. How many of these ambulance rides are allergy related?
Maybe it is just me. Grandma had asthma. She spent her summers huffing on one of those old fashioned medication atomizers with a rubber bulb pump. When she wasn't smoking Camel straights down to where she had to use her yellow fingernails like a roach clip.
Whatever. I'm sneezing so much I'm fouling my keyboard.
