3 Cons of Having Allergies (og hvorfor de er virkelig professionelle)

Af Joey Mills (mid-twenties wrestling enthusiast, comedian and self labelled snot monster).

Having allergies isn’t easy. You know this already, as I’m assuming by reading an allergy blog you are a sufferer yourself. If not, it’s a really strange hobby. I know everyone has pastimes, but reading about other people’s mucus? And to think our parents only had stamp-collecting and hula hoops. Anyway, if you are a sufferer you will know that there are some annoying limitations you have to put on yourself to avoid becoming a snotty, runny-eyed, blotchy mess. But while you have to miss out on a lot, living under the rule of the sultan of sneezing, are all these things really such losses?

Today we flip some of the cons of allergies into pros. Læs videre for nogle ting, du går glip af, og hvorfor du ikke mangler så meget på alle.

Flowers

Jeg kigger på dig høfeber syge. Som en patient selv det er absolut en nedern at få øjne fulde af nærig væske, når de forsøger at stirre på nogle af naturens smukkeste kreationer. As a man it is doubly tough as well. Hvis du forsøger at bejle til en pige (what? Jeg er gammeldags) do you go with flowers? Hvis hun har høfeber, du har bare indstille din date op til en aften med akavet ubehag. Which in my case would have no doubt occurred without the unwelcome intrusion of allergies anyway, but the point stands.

But is this such a bad thing? If you make your allergies known, your potential suitor (se Jeg har læst Dickens, let it go) will have to look for more creative ways to impress you. A mixtape perhaps? A box of chocolates? A puppet show chronicling how you met, fra akavet goddag udveksles i et værk team-building øvelse til den tid du havde en klodset fumle i Jans kontor på julefrokost. Actually, maybe not that last part.

Animals

If pet allergies are your affliction this can be a tricky one to navigate. For instance you go to visit a friend, their pet Labrador comes bounding up to you with love in its eyes and a song in its heart. What do you do? Du kan ikke væmmes fordi ingen hader Labradors, de er yndig og du vil aldrig leve den ned! So you crouch down and stroke him, fortælle ham, han er en god dreng på trods af, at han har afsluttet ingen opgaver fortjener sådan fortjeneste, da din ankomst, and condemn yourself to a constantly running nose for the rest of the evening.

Men hvis du nogensinde har været til en fest, så vil du vide en umistelig sandhed. There is always the one person the family pet takes to out of the visiting group, og denne person derefter dømt til væsentlige babysitte kærligheden ramte dyret for resten af ​​aftenens festligheder. Du vil vide, om det er dig, fordi ejeren vil sige "Åh, han kan lide dig!"Når nævnte tilgange dyr. You might love dogs and cats, but nobody wants to be sat petting one while everyone else plays strip backgammon or whatever happens at house parties since I stopped being a student. Et godt timet "Jeg er ked af jeg er allergisk" vil spare dig fra en aften spiller hente med årsagen til dine lidelser.

Cleaning

Now this one is really a no-brainer. Obviously your house will need to be maintained at a decent level to avoid constant symptoms, but when it comes time for that annual, nook and cranny deep clean, your dust allergy is your most potent weapon. You might not avoid the whole debacle altogether, men alle de virkelig beskidte opgaver vil blive taget af andre, der bare ikke ved, hvad du går igennem med støv allergi. You might end up with the washing up or something. Hvilket i grand ordningen af ​​ting er bare at tørre ting og lade det lufttørre, mens din bofælle har til støv bag denne sofa ingen har rørt siden nytårsaften 2014. Result!

Så dine begrænsninger er ikke så slemt som du tror, if you know how to harness them to your advantage. If you are one of those people who really loves flowers, dogs or unwashed carpets you can still use the great range of HayMax allergen barrier balms.
