I've develop allergies only as an adult. Avoiding people who wear scent, taking anti-histamines and no flowers indoors are a few of the things I do.

I never had allergies as a child but as an adult I have developed an allergy to perfumes and after shaves. If I come into contact with someone who is wearing perfume, even if it's a faint whiff I start sneezing non stop for ages. Then the migraine starts and nothing I take will ease it. It always lasts 3 days. My husband gave our friend a lift in my car and she was wearing perfume. A week later we went away for a few days. My husband drove and I sat in the passenger seat. We had to stop 6 times for me to vomit because I could smell our friend's perfume on the seatbelt. When my children were young, I couldn't join them on school trips because every mum and dad on the coach wore their perfumes. Something I've always wondered. Why do some women have to put half a bottle of perfume on themselves? They absolutely stink to high heaven. Maybe it's because they haven't showered and they're masking body odour.

So THAT'S why I'm sneezing now. (Aah-choo) Thank you.

Who wants to play dead, anyway? Who thought playing dead is a good idea? Life is for being alive.

Another article meant to scare people into believing no matter what they do they are being poisoned …

Thanks for the good advice!
