Allergy Season



Operation "Kill My Allergies" is in full effect. I don't know for sure what I'm allergic to, only that it seems to be seasonal and only started once I moved to the Grass Seed Capital of the World. Yes, there is such a place.

To be on the safe side, I bought an air purifier for my room, and am making sure to wash my sheets once a week. Can't hurt to get all the dust and cat hair out of the vicinity, although I'm pretty sure I'm not allergic to those things. You never know what a compromised immune system will get upset about though.

I read somewhere that allergies are your body's reaction to something it shouldn't be reacting to. I like that explanation. It makes sense.

I bought honey grown in this area tonight. I heard a long time ago that local honey can help immunize you from local allergies. Last summer I found some at the farmer's market. Not sure if it helped, but it sure tasted good! This year I found some at the local health food co-op. Couldn't hurt, right?

I figure it also couldn't hurt to be in better shape. That helps everything in general. I've been eating lots more fruits and vegetables this past month, and now that my monster cold is gone, I'm going to get serious about working out. Not sure what my plan is yet in that department, though. Maybe I'll get back to doing Wii Fit. I do think getting outdoors would be good too, though. I'm such a couch potato.

The last part of building up my immune system involves getting better sleep. I am saving that one for last because I'm a natural night owl with a crack-of-dawn job. It's going to take every ounce of my convincing powers to get myself into bed at a decent hour on a consistent basis. 'Course maybe by the time I'm ready for that part of the plan, I'll be living on an island paradise where no one wakes up early if they don't want too. A girl can dream, right?

  1. This is HILARIOUS! I've driven thru your neck of the woods and I do believe they say that they are the grass seed capital of the world. What do I remember - "in this plot is RYE GRASS" "in this plot is Bermuda Triangle Grass" Oh - I mean "Bermuda Grass" Hey - there's your desert island! LOL!
    I think you have a great plan on getting rid of allergies. Do those shots work? My son has horrible allergies and lives in the Calif. Bay area. He sniffles all the time. :) Even in the winter. thanks for following my blog ... I'm Bevy on blogfrog too.
    You do live in my FAVE place on this earth - Oregon. I love Southern Oregon ... someday I'll get there again. :)

  2. Not sure if the shots works - I try to avoid doctors if i can help it. Lol. So far my allergies aren't horrible though. Just sneezing a few weeks a year.
    I think if I can get in better shape and eating healthier that that may help my body react nicer to things. Not sure if that's all related, but I have a theory that it might be.
