I've just got an invitation for a family event in Feb. The trouble is that there is no way for me to avoid dogs around it. I am very allergic to dogs. I usually load myself up with antihistimines and start to take more preventer a while beforehand, this usually gets me through it for enough time to keep most happy.
Right now, upping the preventer isn't possible as I'm on the maximum dose. Also, even if I could I don't think it would help me with anything other than a free ride to A&E. The difficult bit is that me & asthma are normal for my family. They don't seem to understand just how bad it is right now and won't be happy if I don't turn up (they still haven't got over my Christmas absence). No amount of explaining seems to help them understand, I guess I've not explained it very well.
Sorry - am just venting. Seems I'll be the black sheep for a while.
