I think I've always had allergies, but they are getting worse. Or are they?
When I was a kid, I used to wake up with my eyes so gummed up I couldn't open them. I had to wash them over and over with warm water to even be able to see. This went away eventually, but as an adult we had a cat and I realized after a while that I am allergic to cats.
Oven cleaner...forget it. Can't breathe. Perfume? Gives me a headache. Dust? sneeze and congestion. Prairie wildflowers...yeah, I'm still barely over that one, from last Friday. Luckily most domesticated flowers don't bother me.
Today I had a little trouble finding a doctor's office, so I wandered around the complex a bit, and it smelled like weed killer/fertilizer chemicals. That is one nasty smell, and this afternoon I got a headache. While I can't say definitively that one caused the other, it's one more reason to do things as naturally as possible. Meanwhile, my eyes itch again.
The sum of all this is that I am glad to have Leslie Sansone's program, a safe, low impact indoor workout. At this time of the year, I am best off to be indoors, no matter how nice the weather.
I'm still walking to work, so far at least, and I hope I can keep that up. The five or ten minutes of sunshine is worth it!
