Subject: RE: BS: Spring is here
Ah yes, hay fever. My poor husband has started to sneeze constantly, feels blocked up and can hardly breathe. The medications make him drowsy and dopey, and he has to drive to work and handle heavy cleaning machinery.
There are numerous fields of oilseed rape around our house and also, sadly, around the school where my husband works. The yellow flowers are now in full bloom, and it's this pollen particularly which makes him so poorly. That and the May blossom in the hedgerows.
We've been trying local honey from our village beekeeper, which we thought might desensitise him, but it doesn't seem to have worked. :(
