Suffering from allergies can be a serious problem, especially if you are allergic to multiple items.
I am allergic to lots of different things like ragweed, pollen, fresh cut grass, and a variety of other outdoor allergens.
The problem began when I was younger and it has continued to get worse as I have gotten older. A lot of people say their allergies get better when they age, but mine have continued to get worse. I find myself allergic to times that I never had problems with in the past. During allergy season, I have to constantly use an indoor air purifier. I have an air purifier in the living room and another one in the bedroom. Both machines run simultaneously, especially during the hay fever and pollen season. The air purifier in my living room is portable, so I can move it to other areas of the house like the kitchen or the dining room. I never needed an air purifier until a couple of years ago when an allergy attack sent me to the emergency room. My throat was swollen and I had to get a shot of epinephrine from the doctor. I thought I was going to pass out and die and I was extremely thankful that I wasn’t alone when the horrible reaction occurred. My friends and I had been outside hiking that day. They took me straight to the ER when the reaction started to appear. I knew I was taking chances going outside for a hike during hayfever and allergy season, but I didn’t expect those awful results.
