My darling hubby decided to surprise me by "freshening" up the house with carpet freshener. One problem...I'm allergic to most fragrances. I don't wear perfume. I can't be around people who wear perfume. It makes me sick.

I walked into the house, smelled this flowery scent and immediately felt my throat constrict. My eyes started watering and my nose running. Sneezing, coughing, head pounding, not fun.

Luckily I was out most of last night. When I came home the symptoms started right up again. I had to sleep on the couch (carpet is upstairs) and even then it would sometimes hit me. I would have to go outside. Again, not fun when it's literally freezing temperatures.

This morning I sent hubby to rent a carpet cleaner. I should have told him to pick up Benedryl. I cannot wait for the smell to go away.

Hope things are good with you!
