Interesting to say the least............

On Sunday I went out to cut the grass.  Within half an hour I was rushing into the house, stripping of my clothes in the kitchen, shouting and carrying on.  Dh was on the phone with dd and was looking at me in complete amazement at what I was doing.

As he said to dd, "your mother has just ran into the house and stripped off her clothes."

I ran upstairs and got into the shower.  I had scratched myself red raw in some places and no I hadn't been bitten but it turns out I am allergic to the bloody grass.  I went off my allergy pills a week or so ago and I had barely been outside since that time.  However cutting the grass in the field which was long and flying around was "the straw that broke the camels back" as they say.

Suffice to say a trip into town to get allergy pills was in order and no more grass cutting for the day.  I was out yesterday cutting grass with no problem, other than I ran out of gas!  I can cut the grass in a fraction of the time with the new mower, so that's a good thing.

The newspaper on the window is working at keeping the red cardinal away, however it still attacks the patio door every now and then (no newspaper on there); will keep the newspaper up for a few more days.  Also had no birds fly into the picture window yet either which is good, but that doesn't happen every day normally though.

Do I dare hope that I may get my car back this week?  Stay tuned for news on that front!

Have a good day everyone!

Oh, so glad you know what you are allergic to! I used to break out in hives from grass, sand, you name it. I outgrew that, but am terribly allergic to mosquito bites.

Too FUNNY!! My hubby would have a heart attack if I started striping down as I came in the door, your DD must have gotten a good laugh out of that. Better do as the Dr say's and stay on your meds.

You poor thing! Grass is a bit of a fundamental one. Do you find you get immune to the allergy pills quite quickly? I have to swap them around every few months to stop it happening.

Wow, maybe it's not all kinds of grass but something particular? That doesn't sound fun!

I'm allergic to grass as well.. my allergist told me in no uncertain terms that I was NEVER to cut the grass, sit in the grass, go barefeet in the grass etc... :( Oh to be a freak of nature. lol!

I am also allergic to grass pollen and many other kinds of pollen I believe. I fortunately don't break out in rashes though, I already have enough with the asthma like symptoms, sleep disturbances, itchy ears, scalp and throat and burning eyes!

It sounds like you were taking the allergy meds for another allergy and the immunity from grass was a side effect!
