For the past month or so here in Sydney we have both been dealing with a random allergy attack. It hits us with a scratchy throat or eyes, and a sudden onslaught of sneezing and runny nose. It’s a vicious thing and we don’t like it at all. We thought maybe mold (a constant issue on a boat), but we’ve done a bunch of cleaning and that doesn’t seem to be it. We have gone through many other theories, but the spore also has hit us when we are off the boat.
It’s probable that there’s something in the summer fauna here in Australia that our American bred system wasn’t made to deal with. We had something similar happen in New Zealand for a while. We are taking an allergy medication when it hits which seems to eventually pull us out of our misery. But, this thing strikes one of us every few days. It’s getting old.
What prompted me to write about this today? A 5:30 AM strike by the spore of course! Aaaaaachooo!
