It is a certainty that my life is far less challenging than many I can think of. I think this is why I am very careful about complaining or whining about the issues that I have to deal with in my life. There are folks in my own community that are struggling just to live their lives. That’s why my issue with allergies seems pretty lame comparatively. It’s something that I have to deal with and I have in some form for most of my life. However, I still come home to a wonderful family and am lucky for all the great things in my life. The allergies are just a real annoyance. I have been to all the specialists and taken so many different medications that it sort of makes my head spin. A certain treatment will work for a while but invariably, that treatment quits working. That is why I am so excited about this new approach I am taking to my allergies. Instead of filling myself with all those medications and the revolving door of doctors, I went another way. The HVAC guy was out doing our seasonal maintenance when he noticed I was having an allergy attack. He ever so politely suggested I look into installing a whole house air purifier. I had not heard of that before. The portable air filters just never really made that much difference and they were a pain to maintain. Well, all that is changed now that I have the whole house air purifier! This thing went in the HVAC air handler and uses UV light to kill all the contaminants in the air. I can’t believe how much better I am breathing.
