Another Allergy?

I woke up this morning with what felt like a fuzzy tennis ball in my throat. I couldn't swallow and my mouth was dry, but I was too tired to do much about it as I stumbled out the door just before 7:00 AM to run the carpool. My sweetie had an early meeting and I was on my own.

As we pulled up to the school, I complained a bit to Princess about my throat and she quickly assured me I wasn't the only one suffering. When I got back to the house, I pulled open the medicine cupboard and popped a Loratadine. I shook my groggy brain, willing the tiny pill to work faster. When did this all happen?

I remember my mom always complaining about hayfever when we were kids. Since my dad owned a small farm, I always assumed she really got sick when she was around the hay. It wasn't until I was older that I realized that she had seasonal allergies  that sometimes got way out of hand.

My sweetie has always trouble with allergies, but not me. Not until the last few years, that is. How is it that a healthy adult can suddenly start having issues with the outdoors? Well, I plan to find out!

Today in my email, I received an invitation to an Allergy Night hosted by the University of Utah. They are having a free event on April 23, 2013 from 6:30 - 7:30 at their Daybreak Facility in South Jordan. They are even offering a free allergy test (with a skin prick) to figure out what type of allergies I might have developed in my old age.

So if you are anywhere near South Jordan, and the pollen is driving you crazy like it is me, check out this website

This is an event I wish I could go to! I want to know what I'm allergic to! Last year Chris got tested and that knowledge has made a huge difference in his health! I hope you get to find out!!
