I like being outdoors. As you all know my regular hobbies involve me in being outside but there is a catch..... like about 20% of the population I suffer from Hayfever. I don't get it as badly now as I once did, but for the last few days I've had itchy eyes and the top of my mouth has been irritated. I'll have to visit the chemists tonight I guess.
Apparently a more effective treatment has been developed but is being denied to the public here because of cost.
This doesn't really affect me since I don't suffer that badly (a few packets of anti histamines a year), but some people do get it very badly. I can tell you my fairly mild condition can be pretty miserable so those who get it bad really have my sympathy.
I suppose as its not life threatening its easy to ignore Hayfever, but if you spend most of the summer with streaming eyes and sneezing every other minute it does detract from the quality of life.
