Friday Five: Allergies

Sure, it’s Saturday, but the questions only turned up in my RSS feed today, and I prefer this on Saturday to 7QT on Saturday.

  1. Do you have any sort of allergy? If so, what are you allergic to?I don’t have any persistent allergies. During my second year in Alabama, though, I had an awful reaction to pollen.
  2. What kinds of symptoms do you experience during an allergic reaction? Are they mild, moderate, severe? I’ve only had the one patch of reactions, and it was probably moderate. All I know is that I just wanted to breathe without coughing and see without having watery eyes, and I couldn’t do either.
  3. How do you manage your allergies? I wound up taking Claritin for about a month. I tried switching to Target’s up & up generic, but my body knew and was not having it. I took one earlier in the spring when my eyes got watery again, and it dried them right up.
  4. Do you have (or know someone with) an unusual or rare allergy? I call mine “regional allergies,” since I’m only allergic in certain regions of the country. I might have had a milder, coughing reaction one summer in South Bend, but I haven’t been back long enough to be sure.
  5. If you are allergic to pet dander, yet choose to keep a furry pet, what influenced your choice? I am not, as far as I know, and I don’t have pets.

Fun fact: Even though I don’t have pets, the F5 about pets is my #1 most visited post. It’s because of the post image, but you never know what people might stumble across after they wander in from Google.
