    It just dawned on me ....

    I've been making sure I've been taking an antihistamine this week - in anticipation of all the Easter lillies and hyacith decorating our church for Easter.

    I've noticed in recent years that I have less tolerance (or more sensitivity) to the excessive odor from the huge quantity of flowers at Easter time at church. The odor is just too much. I also have some allergy type reactions with itchy eyes and running nose. That's why I've been taking the antihistamine - even though it doesn't do anything for the odor. I haven't been bothered with an allergy to flowers before the last few years - and I know that you can develop allergies at any time.

    But it just dawned on me that this sensitivity started about the time I noticed some of my first fibro symptoms! Duh! Another fibro symptom to add to the list! (I'll blame the lack of figuring this out earlier on fibro fog.)

    I too have a runny nose so much this year for the first time. I was blaming the projects and the dust in the crap around here...and the cat. But I haven't started the anti-histamine meds yet..I just blow alot...(:0.)

    Have a wonderful Easter with your family and at church. It is a wonderful time of year...Hope you have a bonnet!! NancyB
