Second Hand Allergy Suffering: Master Allergy Control, Please

Allergy Control in New Territory

Almost eighteen years of my life have passed and now it's only weeks away... College! How exciting? I've been waiting all my life for it: from the first day of Kindergarten, I knew I was destined for greatness. Well, then it was more a Captain Underpants standing on your bed to feel mighty in your tighty whiteys kind of greatness, but now it's a making connections and building new relationships kind of greatness. Having a new, fresh start has never been something to intimidate me. I see it as a welcoming challenge, an inviting escapade. That all seems great. But wait a minute. I don't know anyone there, or anything there. I need to be prepared and feel prepared for the experience, and with that comes knowing my strengths and more importantly knowing my weaknesses. What would happen if I were walking to class and all the sudden I felt congested and tight? What if I got so sick I couldn't even get out of bed to hit the free food buffet? Where would I go? The school infirmary? Well that's good, if I knew where it was. The allergist in the area? Sure, if I had all the paperwork on hand. I know I like to talk about allergies and allergy control a lot, but its so important to know not only what they are but how to handle them, too.

You're lying there, listening to music, feeling the breeze from the ocean hit your face, dipping your toes into the hot summer sand and watching the waves crash one after one after one after one. You can smell the salt from the ocean and the freshness of the air. Or maybe you're on Hole 9, three below par, and the scent of the grass and the view of a cloudless sky over the green overwhelm your fear of the Par 5 ahead of you, of making one bad drive. You tee up, take a few practice swings, pull the driver back, looking down at the ball trying not to comprehend the breadth of the fairway. Then you swing, the club strikes th---ACHOOOO!
