Pollen doesn’t get to me too much. I own a cat and have no problems around dogs or any other sort of fuzzy animal. Dust though, dust kills me. Every time I walk back into work after my day off my nose feels like it’s defrosting. Tissues are used, sneezing cannot be prevented. On the worst days though, the blood decides it wants to have a go at it. It’s come down sometimes to me sitting in a corner with a box of tissues trying to staunch the flood of life juice spilling out of my nostrils. One positive to all that is at least I’m being paid to bleed.
